Your comments here. Not much else to allow so I give it to you early, but:
* HEADLINE OF THE DAY: If you don't know I'm not explaining.
* AND SPEAKING OF SANTORUM: At least he's open about not believing in the separation of church and state. He added that he was "sickened" by JFK's assurances 52 years ago that he would not impose his Catholic faith on others.
"I don't believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute," Santorum, a devout Catholic, said in an interview from Michigan on ABC's "This Week."
"The First Amendment means the free exercise of religion and that means bringing people and their faith into the public square."
And forcing them to swallow your theology, too. Here's the speech (also above) that made Santorum want to throw up. Polls, by the way, put Santorum in the minority against separation of church and state.Southern Living is honoring "Heroes of the New South" for contributions by architecture, artists and others working to preserve Southern traditions. An Arkie who made honorable mention was Beth Wiedower, 35, a Little Rock native now living in West Memphis and working on the Arkansas Delta Rural Heritage Development Initiative. Said the citation:
Beth rehabilitates rural towns through restoration of significant structures, such as the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home.
She's appeared frequently in these pages, once, if I remember correctly, in the first major article editor Lindsey Millar wrote for us. (Through a quirk of our archives on account of a change in websites, my byline appears on that linked article, but it's not my work.)
* VOTER ID LAWS DON'T STOP ELDERLY BLACKS FROM VOTING: Except when they do.
* ARKANSANS FOR BUDDY: If you hurry, you can be one of the first 10 people to follow the Twitter feed of Arkansas for Roemer. The former Louisiana governor sounds pretty good against the rest of the Republican pack, though he's now gone independent.
