Oh, Kentucky


  1. Channel 6 has pre-empted Dr. Phil to monitor some heavy storms that are moving along, roughly, the Crittenden/Caldwell county line. The radar image that they are showing is usually cast against a high-enough-level map of Kentucky that only the bigger towns in this area--moving clockwise from the southwest, Eddyville, Fredonia, Marion, Providence, Dawson Springs and Princeton--appear by name. However, every so often, Channel 6 is bearing down to track a particular area of concern, and we get to see some town names that the Kentucky desk doesn't often have the pleasure of coming across, among them ...

  2. For the record, I'm not rooting for McCracken County High School.

  3. Here were the other towns:

    -- Crider
    -- Frances
    -- Salem
    -- Tiline
    -- Lamasco
