DELHI — That Qutb Minar minaret? Check. Rickshaw ride through a crush of people and an overload of sight and smell in Old Delhi. Check. Smoking hot Bengali food. Check. Snake charmer. Check. Elephant and monkey crossing busy four-lane. Check. Pictures later. And, yes, Mom is at rest among the mums and marigolds in the garden of that colonial hotel.

DOGTOWN (which I say affectionately as a former resident) — Checking e-mail I find a release of late commercial by North Little Rock Police Chief Danny Bradley endorsing Joe Smith for mayor in Tuesday's runoff. Smith has worked closely with Bradley as part of retiring Mayor Pat Hays' administration. The Fraternal Order of Police has backed Tracy Steele who led voting in the first primary.
