    Residents of Kentucky will be ready for the flood but maybe not the future with a proposed cut-to-the-bone budget from Gov. Steve Beshear that he readily admits is "inadequate for the needs of the state's people." His budget cuts 8.4% from an already-trimmed higher education system, with other cuts to basic services like state police, juvenile justice, seniors and libraries. But it leaves in place a controversial $43 million tax break to an 800-acre creationist theme park, complete with massive replica of Noah's Ark and new $11 million highway interchange, that supporters hope will "teach the world about God’s Word and the message of salvation!" If people in Kentucky still know how to read.
