mortons.com figureweightloss.com LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.18 31 opioid death reports, the history of U.S. immigration acts — that crowd my desktop as I knock out this July column. The walls of the office are still papered in maps — U.S., Kentucky and Indiana; Louisville from 1999, 1949 and 1917; an illustrated Louisville historical timeline. About 180 items, some in layers, are pinned to a two-by-three-foot bulletin board. A framed photo of Richard Nixon, taken off a TV screen during his "I'm not a crook" speech, still glowers on my right, and Pat Day looks down from a blown-up cover of a 1984 Louisville Magazine Derby issue propped atop a set of bookshelves (full for the time being).
