Time for a few more Darts and Laurels.
Our first Laurel goes to U.S. Congressman John Yarmuth, who recently donated his entire congressional salary from the past year to charity. Sure, he can afford it. But few of his equally wealthy colleagues have ever shown such generosity.
It may be too soon to judge Mr. Yarmuth's lasting contributions as a congressman. But this shows he truly values the idea of pure public service.
Another Laurel goes to King Southern Bank, which recently donated four homes in the west end to Habitat for Humanity. The houses - worth about a quarter of a million dollars - were acquired through foreclosure, and could have been resold to an investor who would have marketed them as rental properties. But with this generous gift, King gave a real boost to a part of the city that needs a lot more owner-occupied housing.
And finally, our only Dart goes to the Florida State football team. When 25 of its players were suspended because of a cheating scandal, they should have had the decency to step aside and let a more worthy team face Kentucky in the Music City Bowl. While the Cats could match up against any team in the nation - just ask LSU - there's no question their victory over the disgraced Seminoles didn't earn them the respect they deserved. And that's a shame.
