Ready on the firing line

Posted By on Sun, Jul 22, 2012 at 4:25 PM


The Sunday line is open. Guns remain on the minds of many. A blog reader sent the photo above, struck by the juxtaposition of the ad with the flag at half staff. Also:

* DISTURBED: A gun range owner in Colorado reports having received a "weird" message from the Aurora gunman, weird enough to raise warning flags.

* DISTURBED II: Mike Huckabee does it again. Just the other day, he equated homosexuality with pedophilia. Now, he's getting beat up all over the blogosphere (well, there are some religio-cranks cheering him) for blaming the Colorado shootings on an absence of prayer in school and other forced religion in public life. They were praying in school when they were bombing children and fire-hosing people seeking human dignity in Alabama, weren't they guv?

* THE SOCIAL NETWORK DOES BENTONVILLE: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made a low-key visit to Bentonville Saturday for a private session with Walmart bigshots. Channel 4 reports.

  • Not giving up on Fred

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.
  • Private clubs win early closing battle

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • Prosecutors have all the power

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
  • In Hot Springs, pizza means Deluca's

    In Hot Springs, one pizzeria is taking fresh flavors to the next level.
