It's my favorite week of the year. This week's Arkansas Times contains our Academic All-Star Team, our 20th.

Check it out. 
You'll find mini-profiles of 20 high school seniors with sparkling records and bright futures. Plenty of people compile all-star football teams. Nobody else in Arkansas makes a comprehensive effort to focus on classroom stars.

And don't miss this. It's a where-are-they-now article on dozens of our first 380 honorees.

Wow.

Doctors, lawyers, tech wizards, non-profit do-gooders, writers, scientists, a filmmaker and more, including some teachers. The article comes with then-and-now photos.

We'll be honoring this year's winners at a ceremony this afternoon at UALR, our long-time All-Star Team sponsor, so activity on the blog could be light today.

Here, by the way, is the list of students nominated by their schools for the award.

    Why, you ask, does the nursing home lobby hold an open house for lunch and cocktails in a Capitol Hill apartment most days the legislature is in session? Aren't they already well taken care of with profitable reimbursement rates, rhanks to the bed tax, and haven't they stocked the judiciary with judges elected with their campaign contributions?
