You can almost see the tumbleweeds

I like to step outside during big “news” events (like basketball finals, Horse races, and elections) just to get a sense of the quiet that over takes my part of town.   I spent the morning and early afternoon at Churchill Downs on Derby Day reporting, then grabbed a cab (hey whats with those Derby Day cab fares!) and got home just before the Run for the Roses.   For those of you still at the track, elbow to sweaty elbow, here’s what Bardstown road looks like 2 minutes before the race goes off.  As I am sure you know, a typical warm Saturday evening in the Highlands, this stretch of road is packed with cars and people out walking.
