Gov. Mike Beebe and House Speaker Davy Carter  were scheduled to perform a duet last night during the Scaryoke fund-raiser for the Open Arms Shelter for abused children in Lonoke.

I'm disappointed to report no bootleg video has made its way to YouTube yet.

Beforehand, the song selection was top secret. Surely a reader can fill in that blank.

I was looking through the Conway/Loretta songbook for a good title, but nothing jumped out. "After the Fire is Gone?" Nah. Maybe June and Johnny Cash's "Oh What a Good Thing We Had."

Crowd-sourcing invited.

UPDATE: I've now added a photograph. And Gabe Holmstrom sends word that the duet sang George Strait's "Amarillo by Morning" and "Troubador." He notes the opening line of the latter:

"I still feel 25 most of the time
I still raise a little Cain with the boys"

  • What's not to love about the Bentonville Film Festival? Walmart.

    The Bentonville Film Festival, launched this year by actress Geena Davis and held earlier this month from May 5-9, earned a number of largely positive notices from major outlets like the Huffington Post ("At the Bentonville Film Festival, Women Are Playing in the Major Leagues"), the L.A. Times ("Bentonville Film Festival pushes diversity message from year one") and the New York Times ("Bentonville, Ark., Hosts a Film Festival Without a Movie Theater"), most of them centering on its unique and vital agenda — promoting diversity and gender equality in filmmaking — and its celebrity cache (e.g. an acting workshop taught by Robert De Niro, a softball game led by Rosie O'Donnell, etc.).
