Preacher Huck: Christians under attack

Brummett's column on religion and politics was timely. Despite the indication that other issues are more important these days, it doesn't mean politicians aren't still taking care to water the religionist roots of the Republican Party.

Wanted: pressure on LR city board

Reader "Waterboy" added this comment on the Sunday night open line, but I thought I'd call further attention to his contribution to the argument that the Little Rock Board of Directors should change leadership of Central Arkansas Water Tuesday by rejecting the reappointment of lawyer Jane Dickey, who's already had 11 years on the commission.

It's the Supreme Court, stupid

The single most important reason why Obama must win: For much of its term, the Supreme Court muted last year's noisy dissents, warmed to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.'s vision of narrow, incremental decisions and continued a slow but hardly steady move to the right.

  • Trump show

    The first thing to understand is that before it's a presidential election, it's a TV program. To the suits at CNN, NBC and Fox News, that means it's about ratings and money. So of course they're going to play it as a cliffhanger.
  • Brantley: Free lunch Asa

    Gov. Hutchinson has just proved there is a free lunch. Thanks to the recent special legislative session, he can have his money, dodge accountability and claim it's good government.
  • Planned Parenthood: more than abortion

    IUDs, LGBT care, STI treatment — there's a whole alphabet of services at clinics.
  • The Mansion takeover: Of course it was Hutchinson's idea

    Of course the take over of the Governor's Mansion by Asa Hutchinson was his idea, not that of legislators who claimed credit. And the reason portends changes in historic appearance and use of what was once the people's mansion.
  • Truth, not Trump

    The rationalists in both parties and the nonpartisan public have little time left to sort out Donald Trump and his magic with the lusty crowds that show up for his rallies, hang on his tweets, follow his Fox News gabfests and give him outsized votes in the primaries.

  • Governor's Mansion rolls on: Takeover was all about control

    Still more evidence mounts that control was the reason for legislation by Gov. Asa Hutchinson to strip the Governor's Mansion Commission of its power. Read more about the Hutchinson families artistic disagreements and also their desire to reduce public access to the building, including the Grand Hall built for that purpose.
  • An open line: Plus what's wrong with Kansas and Ole Miss?

    The open line includes news elsewhere — the failure of trickle-down economics in Kansas and football fraud with Arkansas angles at Ole Miss.
