The night is young

And the line is open. Final notes:

* THE OBSERVER ON FACEBOOK: The Arkansas Times Facebook page has a new regular feature — daily musings by The Observer, expanding from his weekly roost in our print edition. Many of you will recognize the distinct voice of David Koon. Check it out right here.

* BURGER JOINT BANDIT: KARK reports a gunman robbed the Sports Page on Louisiana Street about 2:45 p.m. today.

* RIDING IN STYLE: Great feature in Wall Street Journal about some lucky folks who got to ride in a plush Union Pacific private car — just like the tycoons of old — when UP's steam engine passed through Little Rock. Video below.

* THE HOT SPRINGS TALIBAN: Talk about wackjobs. This link take you to a blog with helpful annotations on the latest nuttiness from the Garland County Tea Party so you can find exactly where the video compares Obama to Hitler, inveighs against the Masons, etc. The full 10 minutes is below, if you're ready to join the fight against the New World Order.
