LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 8.15 11 nanzkraf.com newyorklife.com South Carolina, our FBI background check failed us. I was in the Charleston area just a few weeks before the shooting and drove my family past that church on Calhoun Street. We all draw conclusions from these events. Some say we need tighter control, others less control. Disarming the population and expecting everyone to behave works in a perfect world; one of my beliefs is that we live in an imperfect world. I carry a gun. Not for me (I have decades of experience in martial arts) but for others. I don't want to have a Sandy Hook happen in my presence. When something like that happens, I think: If only I'd had the ability to do something about it. David Katz Springhurst On Twitter In response to our 30th annual Best of Louisville issue in July, WHAS radio/TV personality Terry Meiners, who has been winning BOL awards since we started handing them out, tweeted this picture of himself and wrote, "1992 Best of Louisville issue. I'm aging like Barry Manilow." The Butchertown brandy distillery Copper & Kings tweeted this photo and thanked us for winning Best View of the City From the City. A young man spotted a photo of himself in our Forecastle coverage and tweeted about it with this hashtag: #MamaIMadeIt. In response to Laidman's gun article, @drmephd tweeted, "Disappointed in @LouisvilleMag for running an article glorifying gun ownership. How many hashtags before we lose this morbid fascination?" Correction The Best of Louisville winner for best hospital should have appeared as Baptist Health Louisville.
