News

  • Big news

    Gov. Mike Beebe and Big River Steel CEO John Correnti shake hands during a news conference Tuesday in which it was announced that Big River would build a $1 billion steel mill in Mississippi County.
  • All in the family

    Old habits die hard. We may have a new Republican majority in the legislature, but like the old Democratic majority, it still doesn't hurt to have a lawmaker spouse to land a part-time job during the legislative session.
  • 'Circuit breaker' legal

    When we first asked Gov. Mike Beebe about the "circuit breaker" idea out of Arizona (automatically opting out of Medicaid expansion if the feds reduce the matching rates in the future), he said it was fine but noted that states can already opt out at any time, an assurance he got in writing from the feds.
  • Rightward push

    Isn't it interesting to watch the right scramble to try to turn the tide of history?

Columns

  • Untouchable

    India's famous sacred cows are roughly handled compared to the reverential treatment given the Chamber of Commerce in this country.
  • Dumas: The truth about guns

    Americans engaged in heated debates over guns periodically from 1690 until today, and race was nearly always a provocation and usually the main one.
  • Lancaster: Just like Hitler

    I remember in the famous book "Brave New World" how they worshipped Henry Ford where it had once been God, so they'd say "Oh Ford!" instead of "Oh God!" and on their Facebook and phone texts it would've been OMF instead of OMG. But Henry Ford never caught on as a deity so we still have OMG.
  • Clergy lingo

    "Chuck Fillay, a reverend at a church near the massage parlor, spoke in favor of the ordinance."
  • Republicans still refuse to face reality

    Now here's a worthy project: Speaking to the Republican National Committee recently, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal declared that it was time for the GOP to "stop being the stupid party. It's time for a new Republican party that talks like adults...We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. We've had enough of that."
