Wrong, the old city still suffers from urban decay. The merger was a sham, point blank.

I don't even think most people even think about the merger. It happened years ago, and the only thing most has probably taken from it, is; it made us 16th largest city, most young folks like me with closed eyes wouldn't have a clue about this so-called "merger," as they'd put it, most people I've talked to about similar matters, don't even know Lynnview and Audabon are cities in this city.

The majority of Jefferson County supported merger. I was not in Louisville then but I heard that it was fairly contentious.
And "nobody voted" Bushes second term- different systems. Things like this usually come down to the people, such as that stupid, infernal smoking ban.

Louisville is not, and never was, the 16th largest city in the U.S., hence Louisville is not fully consolidated with Jefferson County.

And I have a source to confirm that Louisville is the 30th, and not the 16th, largest city in the U.S.

This post was prophetic. "A vote is a vote"

The smoking ban ( from earlier post) is the prohibition of smoking indoors at all businesses, even if they are private clubs. Most places have since developed an outdoor space with walls and heaters to allow patrons to smoke in a section of their business ( bars, some restaurants, etc)

I'm confused. Is someone saying a ban on smoking indoors is bad?

And I happen to be against smoking bans, and as always I still think that the merger of Louisville and Jefferson County was sham, point blank. I will form a petition sometime to dissolve Louisville Metro. And about smoking bans we are going off topic.
