Governor deserves better information source

Gov. Steve Beshear is never going to get his act straight on Kentucky's Davis-Bacon requirements if he gets his news from The Louisville Courier Journal.

Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson deserves credit for his veto of an ordinance requiring union wages for certain city construction projects. A similar move on the state level would save us all hundreds of millions of dollars. There's no telling how silly the paper's upcoming editorials on this matter will be, given reporter Dan Klepal's false reference to the issue as one relating to "minimum wages."

Any union thug could tell Mr. Klepal there is a huge difference between their earnings and minimum wage. Aren't newspapers supposed to have editors and fact-checkers?
