Re: “Ask the Times: How did the North American headquarters of the Spanish bicycle company Orbea end up in Little Rock?

I can't believe a publication like the Arkansas Times neglected the opportunity to write about Orbea's parent company-- er... "organization"; they're almost the antithesis of a "company," in the American-capitalist tradition. Orbea is a division of Mondragon, the world's largest and, arguably, most successful co-op. The organization is employee-owned, at least at its Spanish locations (apparently, North American and other branches don't operate under the co-op model). The salary range limits the difference between executive positions and the lowest paid employees; the highest paid can never make 6.5 times more than the lowest paid. In a world where unbridled capitalism is proving unsustainably top-heavy, Orbea/Mondragon is a shining example of a more humane and civil way to run a business.

Re: “Another Obamacare scare ad withers under scrutiny

Well, wait a minute. "Arkansas Insurance Department has allowed non-compliant plans to continue through Oct. 1, 2016." But isn't it possible that a plan could be cancelled by will of the insurance company rather than by law?

Re: “Not an inviting House

All this rat talk makes me wonder if all the rat-free restaurants in the city are routinely doused in copious amounts of poison...!
