Another week, another open line. Finishing up:
* TOM COTTON'S PANTS ARE STILL ON FIRE
: Tom Cotton
continues to baldly and knowingly misrepresent facts about Obamacare and U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor. I won't do him the favor of posting ready access to his dishonest video. But here's his description

* FEDERAL SHUTDOWN COULD HIT LR JOBS
: Talk Business reports
that the Republican-forced federal government shutdown
could force layoffs at the Dassault Falcon
jet finishing facility in Little Rock.
* SAME-SEX MARRIAGE PROPOSALS SET BACK AGAIN
: The attorney general's office today
again rejected two competing proposed ballot measures to overturn the current constitutional ban on same-sex marriage
in Arkansas. Ambiguities again cited. Here,
and also here.
