Re: “Stephens Media downsizing continues

Since Stephens bought Donrey media the newspaper has descended into a purely Republican rag. I worked at the SWTR in the early 70's and I feel remorse for the people who have lost their livelihood but, it's time for it to die. Until June I still have a subscription but, It'll not be renewed.

The printing being out-sourced to NW AR on most days its not received until mid-morning...Why bother?

Re: “A political open line; plus more on the evils of voter ID laws

All but 11 of the 243 were convicted felons illegally registering to vote. Considering ethics...probably all trying to vote Republican.

Re: “Lawsuit challenges referendum on Fayetteville civil rights ordinance

It's against Postal regulations to gather petition signatures on Post Office property. The ACLU filed suit in 2000 & it's still illegal except on a public sidewalk outside postal property.

Re: “Demolition open line

No I don't like the agreement the government made with the drug companies...I'm not, however, going to risk my life for the benefit of the nutzsoid anti-vaccine faction that have caused unnecessary death and disease of American citizens. A little whooping cough or measles or chicken pox mayhap a little mumps raging in the school systems because of the anti-vaccine folks?

Re: “Demolition open line

The report states 2 deaths from the flu shot over what appears to be an 11 year period. The average deaths from the flu 36,000 a year...I'll follow my Doctors advice & take the flu shot.

Re: “How the South became dead red

I grew up as a military brat in the 50's and early 60's....The army schools in Germany, France and Italy were fully integrated as was the military housing. The schools and housing in Killeen Tx and Ft Hood Tx were fully integrated. When we arrived in Ft Baptist in 1962 I was astounded to find all the black people lived , worked and were educated in an isolated area on the north side of town.
Until then I'd thought the forced integration of Little Rock schools in 1957 had opened the doors to all...foolish...we're still waiting.
