Louisville Quotes

“Louisville is a place with no labels. It’s not the South, it’s not Chicago, and you don’t think of it as you think of New York or LA. It has some Southern romanticism to it, but also a Northern progressivism, this weird urban island in the middle of the state of Kentucky that has always provided a fertile, often dark, bed. For us, Louisville and the surrounding areas are the center of massive creativity and massive weirdness. The place has its flaws: You move away, but you’re always going to come back.” – Jim James

“As you may know, KFC is under worldwide pressure to eliminate its cruelest abuses of chickens, such as cutting the beaks off baby birds; breeding chickens to grow so large, so quickly that many suffer crippling injuries; and slitting the birds’ throats or dropping them into tanks of scalding-hot water while they are still alive and able to feel pain.” – Pamela Anderson

“I can eat everything; chocolate, hamburgers, pizza, go to McDonalds, Burger King, KFC. It’s all in my body.” – Rain

“KFC has no excuse for refusing to adopt these basic, minimal animal-welfare standards … After two years of fruitless negotiations with the company, we’re trying a more personal approach.” – Bruce Friedrich

“You can’t win the Kentucky Derby unless you’re on a thoroughbred.” – Joe Torre
