Big Pharma gets a do-over…

NPR reports the FDA isn’t pulling any punches while they reevaluate weight loss drugs previously denied because of side-effects. Sure you’ll grow a third ear, but at least you’ll be skinny!

Kentucky~ Paducah and McCracken County are still considering a merger.  Local counties get some cash for recreational trail programs. Felons may get the chance to vote.

Welcome to your backyard blog-0-sphere!  Some of us are prepping to begin posting away with opinions and insights about issues we care about, and (since we’re practically neighbors) maybe you will to. First, get to know me.

Introducing myself: heyo! I’m Chris Taylor, a Murray-dwelling young adult, currently scraping a living as a Morning Edition News Producer @ west Kentucky’s (best) NPR-affiliate. That means I get up earlier than you (likely), but not as early as Todd (ha!).

I’ll probably be posting week-daily about the news (more likely). Sentences are good. I like parentheses, too; expect to see those (most likely).

Okay, enough fun. My interests (of which, may/may not be what I blog about) go!! >> parenting, cooking, biking, disc golf(ing), gaming, newsing, and breathing (you too!?).

Find me on facebookWKMS.ORG (me), and West Kentucky Star.

See ya (bye).
