Labor Day In Kentucky

My relatives in rural Kentucky were amazed when we told them about Tennessee’s new guns-in-bars/guns-in-parks law. Amazed and aghast.

“Why would they do that? Why would they pass a law like that?” they asked. Then they laughed.

“Y’all can never make fun of Kentucky again!”

That's just swell. When people in rural Kentucky make fun of you, you know it’s bad.

My Kentucky relatives are not crazy tree-hugging liberals. For those who don’t remember, this was our Thanksgiving.

Thanks, Tennessee legislature. We are now laughingstocks of the mid-South.
