A 7-year-old girl who survived a plane crash and then trekked nearly a mile through dense woods to get help held out hope that her parents, sister and cousin might somehow have survived, too, police said today.
"She indicated to us that she believed her family was deceased but that she hoped they were just sleeping," Kentucky State Police Lt. Brent White said. "I was literally just struck by how calm she was able to be and the ability for her to give us this information."

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rand Paul may only yet be a candidate for re-election to the Senate in 2016, but the first-term Kentucky Republican already is sprinting toward the race for president.
The libertarian-minded lawmaker is set to visit several Western states this month before reintroducing himself to voters in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, and his team is working to strengthen his political network in nearly every state.
At the same time, he is readying for a leading role in the GOP's new Senate majority while pushing to improve a Republican brand he says is "tattered."
Aides insist that Paul has not finalized his decision about the White House, but his aggressive steps leave little doubt about his ambitions.

With a Democratic-controlled KY House, will Rand Paul consider running for president and Senate at the same time?
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Sen. Rand Paul and Kentucky Republicans are exploring the possibility of turning the state’s presidential primary into a caucus instead — a move that could allow him to run for both his Senate seat and president in 2016.
The preliminary discussions have begun in the wake of Kentucky Democrats retaining control of the statehouse in Tuesday’s elections. Democratic leaders of that chamber have already vowed not to change the law, hoping to force Paul to abandon his Senate seat in order to pursue the White House.

Oh the desperation! All MadCow offers, is 100% BS opinion (simply living up to the documented fact of 85% of airtime liars that is the MSDNC z-grade yammery), doesn't substantiate a single assertion/declarative statement: "I think..."

Simple question regarding the Kentucky Senate Race- Do you think third party candidates should be included in debates? The comment section is essentially 100% for inclusion of David Patterson, our Libertarian Candidate for Senate here in Ky.
I just figured I'd share this with you all. I know it's difficult to remain optimistic at times, but this definitely put a smile on my face.
This is also my first post, so take it easy on me!
