Time for Darts and Laurels – one of each this time.
My Laurel goes to Louisville's newest homegrown celebrity, Jennifer Lawrence, who won the "Best Actress" Academy Award last weekend for her performance in "Silver Linings Playbook." Ever since gaining major attention in "Winter's Bone" a few years back, Ms. Lawrence has been regarded as one of Hollywood's top talents and she's been featured in several huge hits. But what really impresses me is that despite her relatively sudden fame, she's managed to stay grounded and live her very public life in a dignified manner.
Obviously, that's not always the case with many young "stars" these days, and Ms. Lawrence deserves a lot of credit for being such an elegant representative of our city.
But my Dart goes to the anything but elegant dog owners who are making life miserable for visitors to the newly-opened Big Four Bridge by refusing to clean up after their pets. Because of their irresponsibility, it looks as if the Waterfront Development Corporation may have to take the step of banning all dogs on the bridge in the future.
That would be a shame for the overwhelming majority of responsible dog owners who understand that the public at large should be able to enjoy this new attraction without constantly watching where we step. But unless the offenders clean up their act – literally – I'm afraid a total ban on dogs is the only possible solution.
