Don't stop — thinking about the Hog Roast, even if Fleetwood Mac played for the Clintons at Verizon last night

FLEETWOOD MAC AT VERIZON: Stevie Nicks sings with John McVie in North Little Rock last night.

  • FLEETWOOD MAC AT VERIZON: Stevie Nicks sings with John McVie in North Little Rock last night.

Brian Chilson has lots of photos from Fleetwood Mac's show at Verizon Arena last night at his Facebook page. I notice Twitter feeds that say Bill and Hillary Clinton were in the house, or so it was announced when the band played "Don't Stop," the theme song to the 1992 presidential campaign. UPDATE: I now see, thanks to our all night readers, that the Stevie Nicks Facebook page has a photo by Paige Lafleur of the Clintons in the house applauding.


Boomer fan comments on Twitter were enthusiastic about the show, which ran more than two hours.

But all that was yesterday.

Today, it's the Arkansas Times Heritage Hog Roast on Main Street in Argenta, North Little Rock's vibrant downtown. Gates open at noon. Music plays all day until headliner Lost Bayou Ramblers about 8 p.m. Craft beer and wine will be for sale. Eleven heritage hogs should already be roasting in a competition that will be decided about 3 p.m, after which feasting will begin for ticketholders. If you didn't order your tickets in advance on-line for $25 (and you still can until noon), they'll cost $30 at the gate for all day admission, music and the pig feast, with sides. Admission after 7 p.m. for music is only $10, but the pig meat will be long gone.

    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."

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.
