Re: “Open line plus arrest in power line attacks case

The Smokin' Joes restaurant owner takes stupid to a whole new level.

Re: “Sen. John Boozman blisters Ted Cruz

So Sen. Boozman isn't an actual robot and is capable of emotion. Interesting. The Republicans created this mess with their own endless Obamacare grandstanding, too bad they're determined to drag the rest of the nation down with them.

Re: “Money walks — the flight to suburbs and more prosperous regions. Is it tax policy? Or something else?

To summarize, since 1992:
Lots of movement into NWA/FSM from Southern California (coincides with explosion of Latino immigrants -- overlap?)
Vast majority of the regional inflow to Benton County came from Washington County (UA students taking up employment at Wally World HQ (?), huge growth of shopping and entertainment previously only available in Fayetteville)
Most regional inflow to Fort Smith comes from surrounding rural counties (explains why FS remains stubbornly small-minded and conservative)
Most FS outflow goes to Van Buren (cheap new "suburban" housing/white people) and Fayetteville (UofA students/jobs)
Pulaski County losing people to suburban flight

Nothing we didn't already know, but it is interesting to see the numbers.

Re: “Mark Darr drops out of 4th District congressional race

He quit the race just in time for the Razorback football season. Coincidence?

His "move" to Mansfield, inappropriate expense reporting, inappropriate bill signing while the governor was out of state and personal foreclosure mess place him in the same league of recklessness, arrogance and ignorance as Mark Martin. It is fortunate for everyone he is leaving politics before gaining a position of real power to screw things up.

Re: “UPDATE Dustin McDaniel calls for state discussion on "broken" death penalty process

Ironic that this meeting and topic converged in Fort Smith, probably within eyesight of the old Judge Parker gallows.

Re: “Tom Cotton burnishes his warhawk image

I honestly don't get the fascination with Cotton. Is it just his bombastic rhetoric? In terms of policy, legislation or intellectual substance, what has he done to earn any attention?

Re: “UPDATE: Nate Bell shoots from lip on Boston violence; Speaker Carter apologizes for him; Bell apologizes for 'timing'

Yeah, I know I'd feel much better if I knew some dipweed in the apartment next door had, not just any gun, but an AR-15 with high capacity magazine, on the ready for any strange noises. The very thought of it gives me a false sense of warmth and security. What could possibly go wrong?
