Before I do anything else, I want to acknowledge a factual error in last week's column. In 1984, Ronald Reagan won an overwhelming electoral victory, but it wasn't against Michael Dukakis.
Alert reader James Spragens notified me of the mistake. Reagan actually ran against Walter Mondale.
I still stand by the premise of the column. I just wanted to acknowledge the error.
- Speaking of errors, the unfortunate events that have affected Marion County High School for the past two weeks garnered the attention of Louisville and Lexington television stations.
