Re: “Broadway Bridge closing set for Sept. 28

Wonder if AHTD can explain why the Broadway Bridge that opened in 1922, 94 years ago, will far outlast the I-30 bridge built only 59 years ago? Wouldn't we expect building materials and technology to have improved, not degraded, over that much time? Or do today's highway contractors need to replace bridges at a cost of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars much more often to keep their pork barrel companies afloat?

Republicans to Pull Money from Trump Ads and Spend it on Alcohol

By Andy Borowitz

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it “the best use of our resources at this time,” the Republican National Committee has decided to pull money originally earmarked for Trump campaign ads and spend it on alcohol instead.

According to the R.N.C. chairman, Reince Priebus, the decision to reallocate the funds from television advertising to alcoholic beverages came after a careful review of the polling in crucial battleground states.

“With about seventy days to go until the election, we had to consider what was the optimal way for us to get through those seventy days,” he said. “We are confident that we have found that way.”

“The decision was unanimous,” he added.

In the crucial state of Pennsylvania, twenty thousand litres of vodka, gin, tequila, and an assortment of fine whiskeys are already being distributed to Republican Party offices.

“It’s questionable whether the ads we were thinking of buying for Trump would work,” Harland Dorrinson, the Pennsylvania G.O.P. chairman, said. “We received the first shipment of alcohol this afternoon, and I can tell you that it’s already working.”

According to the most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission, after the outlays for wine and spirits, the R.N.C. will still have a million dollars in cash on hand, which will go to beer.

Re: “UPDATE: Obamacare proves popular in Arkansas

If !A!S!A! and crew supported a living wage, the need would not be so great for 300,000+ of our fellow Arkansans to need health insurance through Medicaid. You think, !A!S!A!?

Oh, and !A!S!A!, you and your fellow Rethug office holders are welcome to give up YOUR subsidized by taxpayers health insurance. What makes you think you are more deserving of health care than your fellow Arkansans? You are not.

Re: “That time Asa Hutchinson sort of endorsed medical marijuana

Watch/listen to !A!S!A! for 37 minutes before getting to a throwaway comment of his? Come on, Max, that's cruel and unusual punishment.

Re: “LR Advertising and Promotion Commission votes to buy building at Markham and Spring

Wonder if there is any connection between the Advertising and Convention Bureau's purchase of the Cromwell building, and Chris East of the Cromwell firm making a dog and pony show presentation to help sell the highway department's proposed $630 million I-30 widening that the public seems very opposed to? Quid quo pro of some kind? Small circle of incestuous relationships?
