The Wrap for Friday, 2/23

An experimental article!

Editor’s note: This post is an experiment. It is a prototype of an article-plus-newsletter that I am considering adding to the site: a mostly-daily wrap-up of political and governance news across Kentucky. As such, it won’t contain articles of other types, such as commentary and media. (You’ll need to go to the site, or read the weekly newsletter.)

Some of the links will be to stories on ForwardKY; some will be to other sites. The article and the newsletter would be limited to paying members only. If you have feedback on the idea and/or the format, feel free to leave it either in the comments below or by emailing me directly.
