Last night, I chose to put politics aside and spend an evening with Bob Weir at the Louisville Palace Theater over rallies about town and Election Night in America. It was everything I hoped for and more, including a trio of Bob Dylan covers. I figured the election results would be more of a mixed bag, and this morning that seems to be the case.
I don’t have any particularly insightful takeaway from yesterday or bold prediction about where the country is going, but I do think shifting attitudes in the suburbs is an extremely positive development.
In Kentucky, I think (as John Prine might say) actually everything is just about the same.
Here at home – to borrow from, mash up two of my favorite quotables (Bill Clinton and Mark Twain) and torture a metaphor – Mayor Fischer has (rightfully, in my opinion) earned four more years to finish building Louisville a bridge to the 21st century (because we’re 20 years behind). Creating the conditions for the next generation to be successful will be his legacy, and new blood on the Metro Council might just be the binder to help him cement it.
