  • Hot News Saturday: Worst Science Fiction, Sheffield Devolves, Sainted Liberals

    Great News! Buck Alice and the Actor Robot will soon appear as a radio drama. This is not to be missed! Buck Alice and the Actor Robot The Colonial Radio Theater will produce Walter Koenig’s—Chekov, from the original Star Trek—surreal novel as a radio play. (This had been announced before, but the production appears closer to reality.) I hesitate to pick on Mr Koenig, because I have heard of his grief, but Buck Alice is, without doubt, the worst science fiction novel of all time. I mean it. Of All Time! I can prove it—and I have. I wrote a...

    The body of actor Andrew Koenig was found in Vancouver’s Stanley Park yesterday. His father, Walter Koenig, said that his son “took his own life, and was in a lot of pain.” Like most of my generation, I grew up with Walter Koenig as Chekhov on Star Trek, and he played a superb villain much later, on Babylon 5. Until his press conference yesterday, I didn’t realize he was a man of such incredible strength and dignity. He asked for his family to be left in peace to mourn their loss. I hope he won’t mind if I take this...

    The former CFO of Waste Management must pay more than $4 million as part of a final SEC judgment on one of the largest accounting frauds of the 1990s. The judgment also permanently bars James Koenig from acting as an officer or director of a public company and enjoins him from future violations of the antifraud and other provisions of the federal securities laws.

    Combining modern Internet technology with old-school groundwork, state Republican Party leaders are fanning out across the state and setting up shop in ten key cities (including Florence), in a bid to elect the state's first Republican governor in more than 35 years. The statewide initiative, which party officials call "Team Kentucky," is a take on a similar strategy used in last year's statehouse and congressional races. Organizing on a local level, the party will mobilize state, local and federal Republicans to promote its statewide ticket, headed this year by gubernatorial candidate Congressman Ernie Fletcher. Team Kentucky will start with door-to-door...

    Kentucky Democrats are fighting for their political lives in this November's elections, two party nominees told Kenton County Democrats Monday night. "This is the biggest threat we've faced in our lifetime in the Democratic Party," state auditor candidate Crit Luallen told members of the Kenton County Democratic Club Monday night at Walt's Hitching Post in Fort Wright. "The trend in this state is moving Republican. We've all got problems learning how to confront that challenge." Republicans, behind gubernatorial candidate Ernie Fletcher, think this is their best chance at the governor's mansion since Louie Nunn left office in 1971. And if...

    KEEPING GOP AT BAY WILL REQUIRE FINESSE FRANKFORT - Kentucky's Democratic ticket enters the fall campaign doing something it hasn't done in a generation. It's running scared. Republicans have a ticket that seems formidable for the most part. At the top are squeaky clean Ernie Fletcher and Steve Pence, thumping the drum for change after eight consecutive Democratic administrations. It is not just the governorship that Republicans covet and have been denied for more than 30 years. Not one of the undercard offices (attorney general, auditor, agriculture commissioner, treasurer or secretary of state) has been won by a Republican since...
