Irvin S. Cobb Said:
"Here in Paducah one encounters, I claim, an agreeable blend of Western kindliness, and Northern enterprises, superimposed upon a Southern background. Here, I claim, more chickens are fried, more hot biscuits are eaten, more corn pone is consumed, and more genuine hospitality is offered than any town of like size in the commonwealth."

Alben W. Barkley Said:
"Paducah is a town with a distinct flavor. It was ~~ and is ~~ a good place, an interesting place in which to live. A great part of its personality is derived from such colorful citizens as Judge Bishop (the living prototype of Cobb's fictional Judge Priest), Irvin Cobb and others."Marker presented by Shiva Artist Colors
