      Funny thing is many people will not take this post in the spirit in which it was inteneded.

    I’m looking forward to hearing Rubio. He has some making up to do in the GOP race. He’s way behind.

    Vincent Augustine Del Negro did play for Rupp. He didn’t get along with Rupp, and quit the team.

    From an LA Times story Vincent Del Negro did play for Rupp …

    http://articles.latimes.com/2012/dec/22/sports/la-sp-simers-vinny-del-negro-20121223

    “But Vin was a basketball player too, playing for Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp before telling Rupp what he could do to himself. Repeatedly.

    Vin eventually quits, vowing later if he ever has a son, he won’t behave the same way.”

    Vinnie Del Negro played with the Cotton Nash teams back in the early 60’s

    Just filed my unclaimed property form, fingers crossed.

    Unclaimed property also works the other way. I got a notice about my Charles Schwab account, stating that I hadn’t contacted them for 2 years and I needed to fill out the enclosed form and return it by 8/31 or my stocks would go into unclaimed property.

    What is the website where you can check for unclaimed property??

    Thomas Merton was a monk at the abbey of Gethsemanai in Bardstown, was a world famous author and thinker. speculated that he was assassinated while it a christian buddhist conference in China during the 60’s, he died of electrocution from touching a fan in his room that supposedly shorted.

    Smokey valley closing because of plumbing issues. Using system not acceptable by Ky standards she feels to old to have the expense of upgrading so she’s closing

    Fact: KSR has never had a better interview than Marco Rubio. Dude is incredibly intelligent and well rounded. Good job Matt.

    this Rubio interview is pretty impressive imho, i’m an independent and will give him serious consideration if he is their nominee

    Rubio is swaying some opinions. Seems like a good dude that owns his knowledge of policies.

    Excellent interview from Rubio. I thought Matt did well also.

    I generally lean ever so slightly left, but man Rubio owned it today. Seemed genuine, grounded, and informed. I’m all for electing not-crazy.

    Excellent interview by Rubio. And a fine job by Matt as well. It was substantive, yet we also got to know Rubio a bit better away from politics (at least in a sports fan context).

    Matt-you called him ryan and called the gang of 8 the gang of 6. rubio did great, you, did okay.

    Rubio – Intelligent, articulate, and impressive. Matt also seemed “neutral” instead of his usual liberal self. An excellent interview. Congratulations to KSR for this segment!

    I’m also registered as an independent. Rubio definitely got my attention with this interview. He seems very honest and grounded. I hope he gets the nomination – we need some level heads in politics, NOT entertainers and trolls.

      Totally agree. I have been listening to Rubio for awhile now. Very smart and extremely articulate. Seems like a guy that you could go to a sports bar with and drink a beer.

    You can say what you want during campaign season, sound intelligent, be on the right side of every social and financial issue in the end we are not electing an emperor or a king, promises are made during campaign season die during congress sessions.
