Gradyvillian* Mary Keltner sends a link to an outrage story

Mary Keltner sends a link to a New York Times story that should give every Kentuckian the Willies: It's about the University of Kentucky's claim to ownership of the word "Kentucky"!

The story is entititled "(Legal) Moonshiner and University Battle Over Rights to ‘Kentucky’ - The New York Times".

"(Legal) Moonshiner and University Battle Over Rights to ‘Kentucky’ - The New York Times"

Wow! Next thing we'll learn is that great words like "the," "of," and "Ed" cannot be used without paying tribute to some dark capitalistic organization. Where IS Bernie Sanders when we need him?

*Gradyvillian: Not confined to actual residents. (Mary doesn't live here anymore, it hurts to say.) The term used based on ancient an Ancient Baptist tenet, "Once in grace, always in grace." Which applies not only to not getting un-saved, but being an Adair Countian, as well. Ponder that on Sunday. - ED
