Stephen briefly visited with The Third's Representative Yarmuth at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government 2006 Luncheon For Incoming New Members Of The 110th Congress, before profiling the 3rd for part 43 of the
435 434 part series Better Know A District on March 8, 2007.
The 3rd district is the home of the largest city in Kentucky, Louisville. Eat it Lexington! The 3rd is also where you'll find Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, the most exciting 2 minutes in sports. (Unless you count flaming crocodile ball. You're lucky if that game lasts two minutes. Those crocs are maaad.)
The 3rd is the manufacturing center for Hillerich and Bradsby's Louisville Slugger baseball bats, or as today's steroid-enhanced athletes call them, Louisville Toothpicks.
The third's motto: "We're a deathtrap, help us." is a testament to the transfats produced by local establishments like KFC, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns, the many distilleries and the historic tobacco production that once fueled the area's economy.
