It's another isolated incident at FCDC

A few funny things about the Lexington Herald Leader's report late Tuesday about the exposed drug ring at the Fayette County Detention Center.

First, how can it be a "breaking news" story when the reporters read it on the internet and waited for a press release?

Second, how great is it that the FCDC staff is going to have to discuss the FBI investigation every time something goes wrong at the jail?

The real story is this: an inmate was shooting up in his cell and got caught. The inmate gave up Houlihan as his dealer and Houlihan was then given the opportunity to resign. He took it.

And if you believe Houlihan is the only person dealing drugs in the Lexington jail, you probably believe Don Leach studied really hard for his doctoral degree. I would be suspicious if there are no more arrests in this matter.
