Rush led to typos on UK basketball plaque, Pikeville city manager says

An excited rush to present Kentucky Coach John Calipari with a ceremonial key to the city Thursday led Pikeville officials to unwittingly give him a plaque that contained two typographical errors. These mistakes gave detractors a chance to use ugly stereotypes of Kentuckians in reactions posted on the Internet. Pikeville city manager Donovan Blackburn said Monday that the obviousness of the mistakes showed their innocent nature.
