  1. Where do you get the notion that KY AAA is “fleeing” its’downtown location at Jackson & Broadway? Nothing I read in the accompanying C-J article suggested there was any “fleeing” occuring. Looks to me like AAA is consolidating operations to reduce expenses. I don’t see any “fleeing” going on and I’m dismayed that BS is engaging in distortion in order to frame discussion.

  2. The specific portion of the C-J article we were thinking of states: “The agency recently completed an addition to its Hurstbourne building — which is near Shelbyville Road and in the area where the county’s population is drifting — in anticipation of making the site its headquarters, Boyd said.” This is an unfortunate notion that businesses still feel they must leave downtown for such reasons, but it is, of course, their own business decision. Besides, there are multiple meanings of the word “flee” and the word can simply mean to “pass or disappear quickly.” At any rate, we are sorry if you feel this amounts to distortion, but we were simply linking to an article from another source and made no attempt to hide facts.

  3. I agree that they’re fleeing to the suburbs. I think it’s not the best decision, for the future of suburban america is pretty dim, indeed. So be dismayed. Tremble in your boots. What’s coming is coming, although it may take Louisville 20 years to feel what’s already happened in larger cities.

  4. This makes perfect sense. People who like cars live in the suburbs and people who prefer to get rid of their car and walk want to live downtown in a more dense area. AAA belongs in the burbs.
