  • ART FOR POLITICS' SAKE: Guy Bell prints to be auctioned at land commissioner fund-raiser.
Is there a statewide race that commands less attention than the race for state land commissioner? Doesn't mean that Democrat Mark Robertson isn't making a strong bid to challenge incumbent Republican John Thurston, something of a surprise winner four years ago.

I have an invite to a $50 fund-raiser for Robertson (not Thurston as I stupidly wrote originally) Thursday night at the Winslow Drive home of Clark Trim and Herink Throstrup (Colonial Wine and Spirts). Prints of work by artist Guy Bell, currently exhibited at Crystal Bridges, will be auctioned for the cause. The host list is star-studded: Barbara and David Pryor; Betty and Jim Guy Tucker; Sen. Joyce Elliott; Sen. David Johnson; Lottie Shackelford; JP Tyler Denton and many more.

Elvis Presley is also mounting a Libertarian candidacy in this race.

  • Not giving up on Fred

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.
  • Prosecutors have all the power

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?
  • Private clubs win early closing battle

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
  • A tree grows in Little Rock

    When Darla talks about the tree, she calls it "he" sometimes, blurring the seam between the tree and the memory of her son.
