Re: “The Beatles anew

How cool. My wife and I will be at the Joint to hear these remastered songs.

Re: “More meat, less dough

Must say I agree that $4.50 for a single small taco is crazy. There is a happy medium between Taco Bell and that.

Re: “Governor announces plan to expand tech startup program

I've heard presentations from six of the start-up owners who are here for the first round of the FIS-funded accelerator. Sharp entrepreneurs with business plans that appeal to people in the know in the financial services tech industry. I was told yesterday at least two of them will stay here to get their businesses off the ground. So I consider that a good thing. And I'm glad FIS is willing to help fund two more rounds. And I think that use of state funds is better than the huge handouts to companies to locate here. They are different scenarios.

Re: “High on Skye's

No brown bagging because it's not legal to consume alcohol in a liquor store -- other than the limited small samples the store can provide.

Re: “Hits and misses at Taco Mama

Taco Mama is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Arkansas -- for lots of reasons. Sorry the house margarita didn't do it for you, but we can vouch for the top-shelf, which I think is $10, so not ridiculous for better ingredients. We adore the chorizo with scrambled eggs. We're not there that often, living in LR, so we can't NOT get that dish, at least the last few times.

Re: “Rebel Kettle is more than just great beer

We love Rebel Kettle, and Jason Polk is a good operator. The pretzel is made by Arkansas Fresh Bakery, and it's unique. Spring for the beer cheese to go with it. (On a completely different note, it floors me that someone on the internet would post a comment saying "Where is it??" when they are a Google click away from finding out without having to ask anyone.)

Re: “Saturday's open line: The FBI calls and farewell to a friend

I'll be the first friend of Ed Gray's to chime in. I worked beside him from my first day as a part-timer in May 1976 until the end of the Gazette in October 1991. I admired him, liked him and considered him a mentor. He was a complex guy who went through various phases -- runner, vegetarian and things that were the polar opposite of those. But he was always kind to me, always smart and always fun. RIP, buddy.
