Forward Motion

I'm happy to announce I'm on board with the new KyForward website as a columnist and reporter! Their focus is on stories that are useful, educational, and positive - no lurid sensationalism, no crime-porn, no snarky attacks or character assassination, and no mean-spirited celebrity gossip.

In other words, the total opposite direction of where post-Gawker-style internet media seems to be headed.

My hat's in their ring.

The Invisible Barrier

There seems to be a weird psychological barrier that keeps Kentuckians from exploring the vast majority of their state - especially between Louisvillians and Lexingtonians. In this month's issue of Kentucky Monthly, I address this mental block and exhort you and yours to get off the internet and acquaint yourself with the 120 counties of Kentucky, most of which I bet dollars to donuts you ain't been in.

Kentucky Monthly is available at fine and discerning bookstores and newsstands everywhere!
