Kentucky

Kentucky was the fifteenth state admitted into the United States. There are many famous
leaders associated with Kentucky, including Daniel Boone, George Rodgers Clark, Henry
Clay, and Abraham Lincoln. Kentucky is known as the "Bluegrass State" and is al so
famous for its horse industry. The Kentucky Derby is run in Louisville, KY and Lexington,
KY is termed Horse Capital of the World. Another well known aspect of Kentucky is
Kentucky Fried Chicken, which is eaten all around the world.

There are many misconceptions about Kentucky. Many people believe that people in this
state are all poor, uneducated people who have no teeth, walk around barefoot, and live
on a farm. I am here to tell you that I am from the city of Louisville, which has a populatio
n of approximately 750 thousand people. I am well-educated and intend to pursue a
career teaching elementary school children.

I was just wondering if anyone not from Kentucky will read this email. If so, please tell me
some of the ideas that you have about people from Kentucky- both positive and negative.
Thanks!
