GINKGO GLORY: On Hill Road.
  • GINKGO GLORY: On Hill Road.

I mentioned on this week's podcast that my favorite tree has reached its customary Thanksgiving week glory. Not much else to report beyond that sight except a fine plate of tacos at a taco truck new to me - La Tapatia on Col. Glenn on the parking lot of the Martinez Family Market. Were those nubbly corn tortillas homemade? Tasted like it. Three for $4.10, sprinkled with plenty of onions and chopped cilantro. Salsas were fiery, particularly the creamy verde.

LA TAPATIA: Worth a stop on Col. Glenn.

  • Photos from March for TC

    Last night, dozens of friends of TC Edwards, the Little Rock musician and man on the scene who was found murdered Dec. 7, marched in his memory, chanting "Justice for TC" and "TC is metal" as they walked from Pizza D' Action up Kavanaugh.
  • Psych of the South: The Mercenaries' 'Things Found Here'

    Recently, a trove of band business cards from the golden era of Arkansas garage bands was discovered and put on eBay. I was able to purchase some of them, including one by a little known 1960s garage band from Little Rock named The Mercenaries. Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
  • Good policies, bad politics

    Democrats are like Republicans in one way. One party or the other suffers devastating losses at least every eight years and then engages in a noisy search for blame and atonement.
  • Women's work in the House

    The new Republican majority in Arkansas came with the support of female majorities in some key races.
  • The Duggar clan provides big boost, unintentionally, for gay kids

    Still more good news for Lucie's Place, the small Little Rock nonprofit that works to help homeless LGBT youths. It's added a $10,000 grant to $30,000 raised in a symbolic response to the Duggar family's support for discrimination against gay people in Fayetteville.
