Re: “Mike Huckabee in Little Rock today for knee surgery

So who is his insurance with? Provided by the state of Arkansas perhaps?

Re: “Visiting a prison? A word about dress codes

So how do men (or women) with zippered slacks of any variety get past the no metal allowed rule? And I think there are some brands of jeans which still have rivets. Another no-no?

Re: “Baxter County will go secular with courthouse Christmas display, no Nativity scene

In the near future:
"That good Mountain Home Christians won't be able to view the Nativity scene on the courthouse lawn, but rather have to walk or drive to a nearby spot that was not our first choice, is the fault of all those heathens among us," so railed Spencer and Pendergrass to all within shouting distance.

(Privately, it's said they urge Biblical retribution for non-believers in their midst, leaving unanswered the question of retribution for those who believe differently.)

Me? In my more bloodthirsty moments, I imagine Spencer, Pendergrass, etal, transported to an ISIS-held square in Raqqa. The only difference I can see between the two sets of believers is just how far they are allowed to go with their ultimate "truths".

Re: “Benton police charge parents in accidental shooting death of two-year-old

Perhaps someone remembers the outcome, justice-wise, of the killing of the five year old son of a Redfield police office by the boy's younger brother in the spring. As far as I know, the parent(s) were not held accountable.
I suppose some would say that the death of the child is "punishment enough", but is that situation any different than the Benton and Little Rock child deaths?
And should we assume the death of the Naramore child is also "punishment enough" for his father?
Seems to me "punishment enough" too often depends on who you are or who you know.

Re: “The state of utility regulation: Mostly bad news for the biscuit cookers

I dunno, CBB. Hanging up on all Democratic party callers seems to me cutting off your nose to spite your face. But then this comment is from someone who hangs up on ALL political calls.
Anyway, Entergy wants to more than double their rate of return? Not until I have the same opportunity by law is my standard, and that ain't gonna happen.

Re: “Poll: Cruz rising in Iowa

I find it hard to believe of myself, but watching the current Republican field has made me revise my opinion of George W. Bush upwards -- slightly -- from disastrous to bad enough. There has to be a level beyond which they can't go. (Please tell me I'm right with that conclusion.)

Re: “Monday's open line

FWIW, eLwood, I remember reading a NY Times headline -- nothing else -- about the Vietnam War at a checkout counter when I was 10 or 12 and still interested in Archie comic books. That would have been no later than 1958. But Wikipedia says we sent advisors to "French Indochina" in 1950.
