  • Zaffaroni
Kevin Zaffaroni, senior vice president at Acxiom Corp. for information services and technology, is the University of Arkansas for Medical Science's new representative on the Little Rock Technology Park Authority board.

Board chair Mary Good's letter to Zaffaroni notes that the board will not meet July 10, its regularly scheduled meeting day, because members are taking a trip. She's referring to a trip board members are making with Mayor Mark Stodola and consultant Charles Dilks to technology parks in Winston/Salem and St. Louis.

Zaffaroni replaces Dr. Michael Douglas, the head of UAMS Bioventures who retired in January.

  • Executionpalooza

    Appearances count.

  • Not justice

    The strongest, most enduring calls for the death penalty come from those who feel deeply the moral righteousness of "eye-for-an-eye" justice, or retribution. From the depths of pain and the heights of moral offense comes the cry, "The suffering you cause is the suffering you shall receive!" From the true moral insight that punishment should fit the crime, cool logic concludes, "Killers should be killed." Yet I say: retribution yes; death penalty no.
