Re: “SO on Sunday

And there are plenty of places to get all you list, Norma, at a much lower price. Brave New, the Pantry, etc.

Re: “SO on Sunday

$45 filet, $40 salmon and $13 dessert? I didn't know SO was in New York City.

Re: “The Arkansas Travelers open line

The looming specter of a potential Donald Trump presidency has made me very sad for quite a while, but the vitriol spewed over the six Arkansas Razorbacks female basketball players' decision to kneel during the national anthem has geometrically expanded that sadness. And I realized why. Not only is it not OK for people to do anything that isn't in lockstep with the opinions of these people, they must be punished -- PUNISHED! -- for doing so. OK, decide you don't agree with them. But why do you demand their scholarships be revoked, they be kicked off the team -- even that state funding for the entire University of Arkansas be slashed. Insanity. And it's been that way for a while, even pre-social media. Remember when the Dixie Chicks in 2003 were demonized for saying at a concert in the UK that they were ashamed George W. Bush is from their home state of Texas? Huge protests where Dixie Chicks' CDs were burned. Boycotting concerts. Not listening to radio stations that dared to play their songs. All over a comment made during a concert. Things haven't always been this way. Rewind to 1975 when Lynyrd Skynyrd, redneck musicians from Jacksonville, FL, had a hit song with "Saturday Night Special." With these lyrics: "Hand guns are made for killin'; ain't no good for nothin' else; and if you like your whiskey, you might even shoot yourself; so why don't we dump 'em, people, to the bottom of the sea, before some fool come around here, want to shoot either you or me?" What?!? Ban handguns?!? What about the Second Amendment?!? That song was a hit, still plays on the Point 94.1. But if it came out today, the band that released that song would be doomed. Can you imagine the outrage? The Facebook rants? But back then it was OK to say something that not everyone agreed with. With no punishment. Why can't it still be OK to disagree about these sorts of issues? And why must those who disagree be subjected to extreme punishment for disagreeing? All of those who have called the Razorback women thugs ... I'd like you to tell me why things have changed so much in 40 years. Or anyone else who has an idea.

Re: “Allen Weatherly, director of AETN, died this morning

My heart aches with this news. Allen was a good friend and just a bright light in the world. He had survived other health scares, and I had hoped he was destined to be with us -- and AETN -- for decades to come. I know the staff there has to be devastated.

Re: “Lots to love

$1 for tacos that are actually fabulous? $1.99 margaritas (bet they're good, too) and $5 pitchers of beer? Think I've found my next happy hour stop.

Re: “Desperation for the Hogs

So, Cato, you think Kentucky would beat Ole Miss?

Re: “2-0

Damn fine recap of the game. I still say Beau Wilcox is writing the best sports copy available through any mainstream Arkansas media outlet.
