Re: “Election watch — UPDATE

I voted at Trinity Presbyterian in WLR and there were signs saying to have your ID ready before you got to the table. Of course, they've been doing that since I moved out here in 2004.

Also saw a Republican mother haul in her daughter to vote for the first time. Poor kid didn't have a clue but she did know to ask for a Republican ballot.

Re: “Teacher speaks out about her resignation over bullying response at Mayflower H.S.

Not to put a damper on Ms. Nix's findings, but did she get the necessary permissions for her survey? Since she was dealing with minors that means parents would have to sign a release. If not, none of her data can be used.

Re: “Pete Seeger dies at 94

Oh how Mr. Seeger will be missed! Here's an Arkansas angle for you: I was watching a PBS documentary on either folk music, Pete Seeger, or the Civil Rights Movement--or possibly all three. I looked up from whatever else I was doing to see a black and white clip of Mr. Seeger and a diverse group of people singing on a stage and there was Minnijean Brown standing next to him and singing her head off. It's a small world from not being allowed in the Xmas pageant at Central to national television with a folk music hero!

Re: “Airline merger produces Little Rock-New York LaGuardia service

The Southwest flight to Baltimore-Washington International is direct, on-time, and comfortable. Taking the super-shuttle or MARC to DC is not that difficult.

Re: “School settlement: Comment from afar

Little Rock has long had problems with intelligent black men who speak the truth. Right after Brown v Board was handed down in May, 1954, there was universal acclaim and optimism in Little Rock and Arkansas from Gov. Francis Cherry, Daisy Bates, LRSD Virgil Blossom and the could go on and on. The lone voice of reality? L.C. Bates, publisher of the State Press, who said: "The only thing it means is that as we continue our fight for integration in the schools we'll have the Supreme Court on our side. If the South hasn't learned in 91 years to respect the rights of all it's citizens, the decision doesn't mean much."
