I'll put up an open line now with the Hogs off to a promising start against Auburn. Also above is a photo by Brian Chilson from today's Six Bridges Regatta, the resumption of competitive rowing on the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock.

One rower encountered a bit of difficulty, hitting a bridge pier nearing the finish line as she led her race. Some powered boaters provided an assist in getting her back at the oars.

    The State Police have issued a minor clarification in what appears to be an effort to soothe an enraged Sen. Jason Rapert, exposed here as overly excited about both a Conway parking lot question from a constituent as well as some inflammatory Internet rhetoric that he's interpreted as a dire threat on his life.
