Owensboro And Elizabethtown, Talk Of The Nation Monday, October 17, 2005

Katrina Vanden Heuvel recently blogged about her trip to Owensboro and Elizabethtown. It was a great entry and inciteful about life here in Kentucky. She points out that most of us news junkies are something of a rarity in Kentucky as most people feel like the scandals in the government on the state and federal level are just part of it. Something I think they're right. Here's an excerpt from the end of her post.

I got home Sunday night, after a few days out of New York, away from the parsing of Miller's testimony and the New York Times's treatment of her, and found a comment on my latest blog, about a Central American film I had highlighted. "Are you this out of touch?," some person named Colmes asks. Why are you "shilling for some Latin American movie when there are real issues right her in the previously good ol' US of A." Colmes then lists Rove and Miller and McLellan and so on.

There are real issues right here in the good ol' US of A. But maybe we need to spend more time paying attention to the record number of bankruptcies being filed in towns like Owensboro, or the workers' lives lost with an end to safety and health regulations, than to Judith Miller and her notes.

I think she's got one thing right. Maybe our nation should work a little more toward helping our people deal with the tough issues of existance. The working men and women of our country are what define us at our foundation and that's where the Democrats have lost their way. She mentioned listening to folks like Dr. Dan Mongiardo, who could well be our state's future. Someone certainly needs too.
