* MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: This story mentions hackers, but burglars would be the more proper term if the account is true. The story goes that somebody has gotten hold of Mitt Romney's income tax returns and is extorting the Romney camp for money to prevent their release. This could be true, false or a diabolical hoax. But it's out there. More here.

OOPS. I picked up an item from Twitter or somewhere about death of Bob Denver, the actor who played Gilligan. Don't know where that came from. It was old news, which popped back up through the magic of the innertubes. How quickly we forget just about everything these days.

* LAST PERSON OUT OF PINE BLUFF ... A reliable source reports that Pine Bluff Mayor Carl Redus sued today to stop the November mayoral election. He contends state law requires the election be in non-presidential years now that the city's population has dropped below 50,000.

    It is hard for a straight person, The Observer included, to imagine what it would be like to be born gay — to be shipwrecked here on this space-going clod, where nearly every textbook, novel, film and television show, nearly every blaring screen or billboard or magazine ad, reinforces the idea that "normal" means "heterosexual."

    The Presbytery of Arkansas, the governing body for Presbyterian churches in the northern two-thirds of Arkansas, met Saturday at Clarksville and adopted a resolution urging Gov. Asa Hutchinson to veto SB 202, which is aimed at preventing local government from passing anti-discrimination laws to protect gay people. The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
