    Just back from a long vacation, I don't feel my usual dislocation. Internet connections were sketchy, but I read the Arkansas Times and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and stayed up with e-mail.

Re: “Vince Foster's sister says Donald Trump should be ashamed

I think the comment really takes us back to McCarthy. What an ugly comment and was it necessary? Vince Foster was a neighbor of mine and a number of people in my neighborhood went to Washington to serve the country. What an honor. For those of us here, it was a nightmare. I don't believe I mowed the lawn or watered the grass for a couple of weeks because every time you stepped foot outside there was a national reporter to greet you. And it became more aggressive each day as not one of us had any desire to speak to the press. What a crude comment to make and hurt so many people. We really are making America great again.

Re: “Governor's son, Asa Hutchinson III, in drug arrest at Alabama music festival

If you are fortunate enough to have an education and obtain a professional designation and license be it law, finance, insurance, real estate etc. you have to live your life by your professions guidelines. Most of these professions have annual or semi annual regulatory questionnaires that you must comply with in an honest manner. I doubt any regulatory body would allow anyone with three DWI's and a drug charge to continue to do business in this state. It's unfortunate that this young man didn't understand this very simple rule.

Re: “UPDATE: On rumors of a plan to make it a sex crime to use wrong restroom.

This is a complete hoot! Where's the provision for young Mom's who have two young boys that need to take a leak at Kroger? I can tell you, boys wait until the last possible minute until they tell Mom or Dad "I've got to tee-tee". My wife would leave the cart in mid isle and race to the female restroom. I can't tell you how many times our group would be in Destin and we would be at the Back Porch for dinner and I would take two boys and one girl to the restroom. I guess we've lost all common sense in that I'd play a game with the kids "back to the wall in the hallway" let me take a look! When the men's room emptied I would put the little girl in a stall and hold both of my little ones up to the urinal. Any time someone entered I would politely say "Can you give me two minutes kind sir to wash all of these kids hands?". Young or old they would always comply for a Dad with three little kids. I'm just curious now what happens when your kid wants to pee and they are of the other gender?

Re: “Saturday's open line; with some political research to chew on

What a beautiful day for a remembrance! I hoisted a goblet or two of Merlot last night to fond memories of eL. I'm hoping Jazzys spirit got to attend as eL was one of her favorites!

Re: “Restaurant zoning proposal causing Heights buzz

There was a restaurant last year that was looking at the old Hestand's space and part of it eventually went to the Toggery and then Fuller & Son Hardware. I'm curious if this is that same restaurant.

Re: “Sears to close its store on South University in July

One of my old friends from the retail business and I have been betting when Sears(proper) will die. I've always said ten years but this news may hasten that. I was down there two weeks ago to buy a Kenmore disposal that will chew nails and honest to god there were fourteen cars in the parking lot at 1:00 pm in the afternoon. That's not normal for a Saturday.
