- News: Well, Thursday is of course just 30 days away from the Games, another milestone, and I’m suddenly feeling strangely optimistic and energized, long may it last. I think it had something to do with a conversation I had with a Lexington businessman who’s determined that Kentucky make the most of this opportunity and put its best foot/face/hoof forward to welcome the world and show them what a special place this is, and tempt them to return as soon as possible and over and over again. I’d like to share with you my short chat with Kip Cornett.
