Time for a few more Darts and Laurels.
My first Laurel goes to one of Louisville's often-overlooked jewels, the Iroquois Amphitheater. This historic South End facility got an impressive makeover back in 2003 that transformed it from a quaint, but outdated, venue into one of the most attractive and comfortable open-air facilities in the nation. And this summer, it's provided some of the year's best concert experiences with a lineup of artists as diverse as Alice Cooper, Kris Kristofferson and Brandi Carlile.
But a Dart goes to Louisville Doctor Todd House for his lawsuit filed earlier this month to keep President Barack Obama off the Kentucky ballot in this year's election. Why? Because he contends that Obama was born in Kenya and shouldn't be eligible. The only problem is, "birthers" like Dr. House have no legitimate evidence to support their claim, and simply deny all the evidence that does exist to prove them wrong.
This kind of stuff just makes Kentucky look silly. And we already have enough of that.
Finally, a Laurel goes to Bellarmine University for being named host of next year's Division II Mens Basketball Elite Eight. This will be the first time the prestigious tournament is played at historic Freedom Hall. The Knights are sure to be gracious hosts, and here's hoping they're also participants for the third year in a row.
