  • Sumac to go

    Jon Nichols posted this photo of a robin landing on sumac to our Eye On Arkansas Flickr group. Last week's Where in Arkansas winner was Jacob Brock, who correctly guessed our photo was taken at the grotto at Petit Jean State Park on the Seven Hollows Trail.
  • Choices

    Ten months ago my wife and I learned that she was pregnant, and we couldn't have been more excited. We made a baby budget, bought parenting books and paid careful attention to everything she ate.
  • Still amazed

    I am writing this with a heavy vagina, in response to the "War on Women" (Feb. 6) article.


  • Today's crisis

    The cover story of this issue of the Arkansas Times reminds us of another day when zealots tried to hold themselves above the law. Then it was the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that they didn't want to comply with, and the practice of racial discrimination that they sought to defend.
  • The case for taxes

    An old friend who worked harder and smarter than I did in my fecund years and has much more to show for it treated me to lunch and upbraided me in what I thought was an unusually gentlemanly way for having thrown my lot with the utopian socialist Barack Obama.
  • On black history

    If you're going to devote an entire month to appreciating the history of a color, it might as well be the color black.
  • In defense of cats

    Sitting on my front porch a while back, I was watching two bald eagles perched on a cypress limb overlooking the bayou while hummingbirds swooped and buzzed around my ears — an everyday event around here in summer. Struck by simultaneous sightings of the largest and smallest birds in North America, I wondered if I was in danger of becoming a Bird Nut.

    Also, Winston Family Orchestra at White Water, the 18th Annual Custom Knife Show at Robinson Center Exhibition Hall, Suzanne Vega at Juanita's, Lacuna Coil and Sevendust at Revolution, Mushroomhead at Juanita's and Old 97's at Revolution
