A message from Drew Curtis:
Hey everyone, hope your week's been going well.
I noticed our old friend, the AAA article about traffic will be out of control this Memorial Day weekend, is making the rounds. It was a welcome sight for maybe the first time ever. I don't recall what story they went with last year, but it certainly wasn't a record traffic weekend in 2020. Nature is healing.
I'm warming up for some Memorial Day events, mostly involving traveling around KY back roads. Some vaccinated friends are coming to visit and we're going to probably just hit one distillery after the other, as one does around here.
The Fark News Livestream is still on for 7 p.m. Thursday - come find out what you missed this week, along with the weirdest compilation of the news cycle you'll find this side of Florida.
