More money, more problems

As I was driving to Muldraugh the other day, I was thoroughly enjoying my 90s playlist. All of a sudden, a favorite of mine began to play — Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems.” For those of you that are unfamiliar, the chorus goes as follows:
“I don’t know what they want from me. It’s like the more money we come across, the more problems we see.”
In my mind’s eye, I couldn’t help but picture Nucor’s Johnny Jacobs filling the shoes of Biggie and asking Meade County, “What do you want from me?”
I’ve been in the courtroom for everything that’s happened in this lawsuit filed by the Lincoln Trail Grain Growers. As I sit there, I can’t help but feel sympathy for Nucor.
Nucor is not accused of any wrongdoing in this case. They are merely involved due to their association with the deal. Still, they are forced to endure the criticism, and they’re also at risk of losing millions of dollars should this whole thing go pear-shaped.
Admittedly, it feels a little odd for me to acknowledge my sympathy toward a billion-dollar company while I sit in my oh-so-economical Honda Civic, but I can’t help it.
