For the sixth year in a row- I'm off to Louisville!

Louisville also offers an Unbridled opportunity for 1200 Unbridled Advanced Placement history teachers to get together and engage in the Unbridled grading of roughly 1.2 million exceptionally Unbridled exams.

Maybe Louisville's motto should be "Louisville: Sans Bridles."

Anyway, it's that time of the year again, and for the first week of June I'll be busy grading exams, walking along the amazing waterfront, checking out the really cool fossils along the Ohio River on the Indiana side, and attending four Bats baseball games.  As usual, I don't know if I'll be able to post from the Computer Lab or not- the last four years it's worked ok, as long as I've stored a few commentaries in advance, but just in case I can't access the site while I'm there, this is just a head's up explaining why I'm suddenly not around.

Also, since I am going to be grading from 8 AM to 5:30 PM for six straight days, I might not like the idea of sitting down in front of a computer to post commercial insights- as I've said, there are a lot of things to do in Louisville which do not involve being in a dark basement computer lab.  

And if I CAN continue to post (and choose to do so)- well, I don't mind giving a salute to one of my favorite little cities in the world once a year.  If you've never been to Louisville, I really do recommend it.  It's just a fun, friendly place with a small-town atmosphere and big city amenities.  And I guess it's Unbridled, which is also a plus.  I suppose.

Maybe the Kentucky Board of Tourism should hire me to write these things.


  1. Don't forget to get a fish sandwich at Mike Linnig's.

    1. Hmmm..never done that. I've had a beer at a tavern Dickens once stayed at, seen a Horse Race and drank a mint julep (overrated,) eaten a Hot Brown (overrated,) seen many Bats games, examined the fossils on the Indiana side of the Ohio River, visited Henry Clay's house and the Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati, toured the Louisville Slugger Museum, been to the Muhammed Ali Cultural Center, and taken in a concert at the KFC Yum! Center, but I don't know anything about Mike Linnig's. I'll have to ask around.

    2. It's a very popular seafood restaurant that's been open since the '20s

    3. It's 17 miles from the hotel- not going to happen, thanks anyway, sounds great.
