Resources for April 9, 2014

Lexington independent candidate for Mayor, Danny Mayer, comments on the Lexington Herald-Leader's "Lexington Mayor Jim Gray's 2015 budget proposal asks for $40 million in debt for Rupp renovation: "Jim Gray's budget was released yesterday. He proposes $40 million in bonds for Rupp Arena, which he called 'the single best opportunity we have to create jobs.'
That seems to really sell this county short. We should demand our leaders demonstrate more creativity and imagination. Rupp is many things, but it is not a job engine for a 21st century economy."


Mayer for Mayor: "Danny Mayer's Eight Point Platform ["My platform for Mayor embraces and values "the whole horse" of Fayette Urban County: our many diverse suburban, city, and rural areas and people."]

Brain Pickings: "Tom Gauld’s Brilliant Literary Cartoons Blur the Artificial Line Between “High” and “Pop” Culture"
