Fake Fish Prods for Reopening Kentucky Kingdom

The group Save My Park -- which advocates reopening Kentucky Kingdom -- is an early front-runner for the weirdest news release of the week award. It's a fake fish wrapped in newspaper.The news release plays off Gov. Steve Beshear's comment that it's about time for the state to "fish or cut bait" on the shuttered amusement park -- to make a deal with a new amusement park operator, or find something else to do with the property Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center. The pun-heavy news release, addressed to the governor, speaks for itself.  State officials and an investment group led by Ed Hart, a Louisville businessman and former Kentucky Kingdom operator, are expected to meet this week to discuss the latest proposal from Hart's team.
