  • Staff Picks: Boulevard Bread, Bolaño, Bernice Garden, Bill Callahan and the Bible

    I'm kind of a nut on vampire films. For one thing, none of them — from "Nosferatu" to "Twilight" — are really about bloodsucking. They're always about something else: xenophobia, fear of having your metaphorical, jingoistic bloodlines polluted by a menacing foreign Other, hangups about sex, guilt about living so well in the West while countless millions in the Third World get paid pennies an hour to make Nike shoes and cute clothes for The Gap (drink up, you vampire you).

    The latest on statewide political races, Leslie Rutledge’s past, top secret divorces in Faulkner County, a victory for Little Rock private clubs and something rotten happening in Crittenden County — all covered on this week's podcast.

  • 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.
  • Prosecutors have all the power

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A tree grows in Little Rock

    When Darla talks about the tree, she calls it "he" sometimes, blurring the seam between the tree and the memory of her son.
