Haunting Image

It’s Halloween, easily the most dizzily dissonant holiday of the year. Ancient tradition holds that Halloween is the time of year when ghosts of the past make contact with the physical world.

So we were not surprised to see the face of Bobby Petrino haunting various sections of Papa John’s last Saturday. Apparently he was a bit disturbed over some of the shots aimed his way since he vanished in January.

Actually that’s Erin Kenney behind the mask. I would have preferred her face to Petrino’s. Maybe next time …

Saw where Sonny Bass, whose name is on U of L’s Bass-Rudd Tennis Center, recently donated $1 million to the university to help single moms complete their college education. A generous gift. Now if somebody will step forward and do the same for single dads, we will really have advanced the cause of gender equity locally.

    Where can I get one of those masks? Hard for us out-of-towners to stay in the loop. Have a talk with your buddy Mr. Bass and get him to start a scholarship fund for single dads in the western Kentucky area that are getting ready to start grad school in a couple of years.
