It’s understandable why the KFC Yum! Center authority would accept the forgiveness of most of its debt to the Kentucky State Fair Board with the same enthusiasm demonstrated by the University of Louisville basketball team when the Cardinals returned the NCAA championship trophy to that arena this spring.
But that doesn’t make it right.
In a surprising move last May, the fair board forgave all but about $1.6 million of the arena authority’s $7.2 million obligation to the public agency.
Not that the arena doesn’t need all the help it can get.
