Re: “Bipartisan juvenile justice reform bill has one problem in Congress: Tom Cotton

Senate rules need to be reformed. This isn't representative democracy when one idiot can block the will of the majority.

Re: “John Walker and another lawyer arrested after filming police

I know John Walker. He's smart and generous, and has a strong and obvious commitment to helping young people reach their potential. He's been a crusader for racial justice for decades and has certainly made Arkansas a better place. But he's also stubborn and arrogant, and at times it prevents him from rethinking his positions, considering new information, or imagining that he's wrong or poorly informed. He's always a formidable adversary, and LR will regret the day their police officers tangled with him in such an indefensible way.

Re: “Pryors pitch in on City Board race

An Oct. 2014 letter from Yates below.

Dear Arkansas Board of Education Members:

This letter is a plea. It is a plea for you to help the residents, the parents and most especially the children of Little Rock.

Others can better express the concerns and the potential solutions better than I, so I'll be brief. Public schools in Little Rock are a tremendous issue! This is not new... LRSD is not only failing students, it is failing all of Little Rock. People in Benton, Bryant, Cabot, Conway and other communities around Little Rock hope you do nothing to change LRSD. The chaos of public schools in Pulaski County over decades has been the #1 driver in the growth of those communities. Make no mistake, they are all fine communities with great merit. But their growth has been accelerated by Little Rock School District's negative reputation.

In addition to driving families from Little Rock, LRSD has created an economic segregation of public school students vs. private school students. Surely you are aware of the tremendous percentage of students in Little Rock in private school to avoid the public schools.

As a a parent, as a resident of Little Rock, and as a small business owner in Little Rock, I plead with you, I beg you, to please, please make the right choice for public schools in Little Rock. Remove the school board and take control of LRSD.

It appears to me that the future of the residents, the parents and the children of Little Rock is in your hands. Please be good hands.

Most sincerely,

Jeff Yates, CLS, CRX

Re: “George H.W. Bush will vote for Hillary. Or will he?

DBI, I really worry about angry, young adults who are fed up with the establishment, some embracing Bernie, who will now stubbornly protest by voting for Johnson. It's effectively a vote for disaster and Trump, but they find some satisfaction in wrecking the train. They are the only reason this election is close, and the only factor giving me nightmares.

Re: “An open line and a plea for medical marijuana

Why do we need to legalize medical marijuana when this is available? Makes the ballot initiatives look like scams:

Marinol (dronabinol) is a man-made form of cannabis (also known as marijuana).

Marinol is used to treat loss of appetite that causes weight loss in people with AIDS. It is also used to treat severe nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy. Marinol is for use only when other medications have been unable to control the nausea and vomiting.

Re: “'The night we almost lost Arkansas'

Thank goodness for PBS. Can't wait for this to make it to my TV.
