The Jesse White Tumblers made their annual appearance at Riverfest today. The weather was cooperating and big crowds seem likely for tonight's events including closing Saturday headliner CeeLo Green. And then there's Sunday.

Bro. Jason Rapert got to grandstand at Boys State today about that liberal bully down in Little Rock — me. He might have had the crowd with him on abortion, but I think he might have found a different response on marijuana and Faulkner county beer sales.
