USA Today gives Louisville some love
Around this time of year (Derby season), Louisville tends to get a lot of national attention. However, that attention generally plays up stereotypes of horse country and Southern traditions. Not exactly the reality that most people experience here.

So it is nice to read this USA Today article which highlights the transformation taking place downtown.

As part of a San Francisco-based company, we're always trying to assure most of our West Coast co-workers that Louisville isn't like "The Beverly Hillbillies."

And despite what the article, there is no disagreement locally on how to pronounce it. It is "lou-uh-vul."

BTW, my photos from yesterday's Pegasus Parade are on Flickr. Lots of bands, clowns and the greatest of all-time, Muhammad Ali. Looks like a few other people posted photos to Flickr as well.
