This is the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech. In case you've forgotten:

So, I suppose if you must worry, you still have some cause to do so.

Also these, from Oscar Combs last night:

That Louisville deal is going to blow up in their face, eventually. Trust me. Consider:

If the Arena Authority can’t pay the bills from the revenue generated by the TIF (they can’t), city government has to pay the tab, which is hovering at more than $570 million dollars, principal and interest combined at current bond yields. (Though the cost of servicing the debt just got more expensive after Moody’s Investor Service downgraded the arena debt to "junk" status earlier this month.)

If you want to know the genesis of the suspicions of some Kentucky fans that the Louisville media market gives the University of Louisville a pass, this is it right here. And it is passing strange that all the investigative work on this is being done by a little site like InsiderLouisville, especially with several large TV and radio news department along with the Courier-Journal, the state's biggest paper.

With that said, I don't believe in any media conspiracy of silence in Louisville, I live here and I'm not putting on my tinfoil hat today, or any day. It just seems strange that this isn't getting more play. Maybe there's a good reason I'm not aware of, or maybe it just isn't "ripe" enough. That's always possible.

Also, see here for much more. This bomb is going to blow up sometime. I just don't know when.  Perhaps when...

... Kentucky fans start paying for Louisville's arena. That ought to do it.
