Re: “Hibernia Irish Tavern

Not at all impressed after three visits. I'm sure the Irish eat something in addition to mashed potatoes, which seem to be served with nearly every entree.

Loud and noisy, so it's not a place to go have a quiet conversation with friends.

Service was less than stellar, both of the last times I was there with a group they lost my order, never got served with anything except the bill. I will not be going back.

Re: “Legislative committee passes resolution against EPA carbon rule

A similar deal happened a couple of years ago when the Legislature gutted many of the clean water standards that ADEQ attempts to enforce on EPA's behalf. Once they found that most of the program is federally funded, and EPA doesn't give you their money if you don't abide by and enforce their rules, there was a special session to repeal the offending acts and restore the old standards. You can set whatever state standard your little minds may desire, but EPA still has jurisdiction, and their rules are independently enforceable.

Re: “Guns: If you've got 'em, flaunt 'em

Last winter, I too, took heed of all the local news, and went through the process to obtain my CHCL. I found myself out at night in various places around town a little too much for my comfort, and figured that if we do have to rise up and deal with tyranny, I probably needed something other than my duck gun. So, when I am not around one of those "prohibited places," I usually have my little friend somewhere at hand, concealed.

I am one of those redneck country boys, but from personal observation and the follow-on study after getting my CHCL, I do not believe tht open carry is a good idea for common sense reasons. For the first thing, if I OC, then everyone, bad guys as well as good guys, know that my little friend is indeed with me, and exactly where it's at. In the bad guy's case, this may lead to their coveting a nice tool, and to trying to break even another commandment after coveting. Secondly, it marks me as a prime and early target should they want to further their criminal careers. Secondly, we as a society have been so conditioned by the media and our political system to so greatly fear firearms not in the possession of a uniformed police officer, that the sight of a Glock 22 riding on my hip may tend to send some citizens into a full-fledged conniption and generally disturb the local peace and harmony, undoubtedly at my expense.

My license simply entitles me to have my friend in my possession so long as no one else can tell I have it with me. State law allows me to use it in my personal defense, and that of my family and close friends under certain specific conditions and circumstances, and not as some sort of vigilante, should some miscreant barge in here at Starbucks and demand free coffee and the contents of the cash register. I'm not a cop, and I'm not allowed to try to act like one. My friend only appears when I need to defend a human life. And my friend should be an utter surprise to the bad guy. These sorts of fights can't be the Queensbury rules.

Re: “The heart(less) of the Arkansas Republican Party

In my experience, the more that a person like Miz Hobbs or Mr. Raper insists that he or she is speaking God's directions to him or her, the likelihood increases exponentially that you are dealing with a false prophet.

Re: “Coming: Behind-the-scenes account of 1980 Titan missile accident in Damascus, Ark.

I read about the incident in the European edition of "The Stars & Stripes," while pulling a 12-week tour of duty as a maintenance and launch officer at a Pershing missile site in Germany... Taking short cuts with missiles can be a very bad thing, whether they be liquid- or solid-fueled. Several years later my old battery in Germany lost two soldiers when static electricity ignited a Pershing II rocket motor while it was being removed from the storage container. It'll be interesting to read Mr. Schlosser's spin on these things.

Re: “Hole opens in Cantrell viaduct

With all the frenzy about handguns in the current Ledge, make that "Gats, tats, and twats."

Re: “Now, Arkansas will be sued

Who says the state has to defend against the lawsuit? "Your Honor, we've been to law school a time or two in our lives, just like you - and probably the Plaintiff too - and we agree this Act is unconstitutional. We plea no contest." It's the right thing to do, and saves the taxpayers a whole lot of money...

Re: “Rapert's abortion ban is unconstitutional

Brother Drew, you ought to know better than to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed man like Mr. Bell... It just ain't fair ;-)
