Re: “Dickson Street

For those who remember the "real" Dickson Street the current strip is a disgusting shadow of its former funky self. "They" didn't "Keep Fayettevile Funky," and with a $6 million overpriced parking garage and the prospect of an enlarged Walmart Art Center, there will be more rich people, higher prices and lots more cars mixing with the drunk pedestrians. It's time to leave. My friend Dubie says "Put the Dick back in Dickson Street," and while I agree with the sentiment I think there's not enough Viagra in the world for that dysfunctional business district to ever get it up again.

Re: “Critique: UA school voucher study 'garbage in garbage out'

The UA board of trustees is garbage in, garbage out, personified.

They approved the creation (science) of that bogus academic department. It's the education profession's equivalent to Creation Science. I'm disgusted that higher ed. accreditation agencies haven't stripped the UA's accreditation for suborning such magical unrealism as is routinely pumped out of that shop. It's just as sweaty as any factory where Walmart buys its "clothing" from.

UA should be the laughingstock of legitimate universities around the country for having perpetrated a major "roll back" of academic standards to facilitate the "low price" of the increasingly devalued UA, its degree programs, and its overall reputation.

Re: “Governor backs Plant Board on new pesticide rules

They'll regulate pesticides (using that term with great skepticism) only when one powerful ag group wants to regulate some other group of growers when it impacts the more-powerful group's bottom line. When pesticides threaten the health and safety of anyone NOT represented on the board majority of the Farm Bureau, regulation is the worst thing that could ever be done. Even when people are dying. Like my daddy used to tell me, the only thing worse than corporations killing people with poison is regulating corporations to prevent them from killing people. And he was straight-faced serious when he said that. He coulda been in state gubmint. oh wait, he was... :-( And he was one of the more sane ones at the time. T'ain't sayin' a whole heckuva lot, though. Never saw a bigger, fatter bunch of squawkin' whinin' babies in one room in my life as I did the Arkansas General Ass-simile in session. Welcome to Little Rock, now please go back home to whatever backwater backwoods you corrupt sleazebags oozed out of.

Re: “State Rep. Micah Neal pleads guilty to taking kickbacks from government grants

Praise god even when you're counting your ill-gotten gains. 'Cause even when nobody else is looking, you better believe SHE is, and you're gonna need her help get your ass out of jam at some point. Or to get jam out of...

Re: “Child's shooting death called result of road rage UPDATE

CNN's crawl this morning gives the impression that police have not decided to charge the shooter because they don't know if the shooting was intentional...?

Re: “Handicapped faced with long walk to get to state Capitol on weekends

There's a great lawyer in Birmingham named Ed Zwilling who does ADA litigation for a living. He's won several lawsuits in NWA against some high-profile defendants, including the Walton Arts Center, the UA, the NWA Reg Planning Commission, and the Clinton House Museum!

Re: “Actor George Takei takes on Trump

Let's have a "burn-in" on the front steps of the capitol! While we're at it we can burn photos of Rapert, Hester, Cotton, et. al.

Re: “Lawmakers respect voters, except when they don't: See marijuana

Once they start getting donations from the cannabis industry, they'll change their tune.

All this faux outrage will go up in smoke.

Pot legalization will be the next big culture war battle, and the GOP will lose as they always do. And then the next election you won't hear a peep about it, some will even claim they were for it all along. (Some GOP are legalization supporters, but only the hard-core libertarians.)

Trump will be under growing pressure to move pot off Schedule 1 list (thanks for nothing, Obama!), and he will face major opposition either way he goes. So far he has stood with the hard-line drug warriors, saying he'll reverse Obama's non-enforcement in states where it's legal.

Libs kept quiet when Obama --a former pot smoker himself-- refused to do the right thing on rescheduling. But as so many states are legalizing, Trump will have a backlash on his hands if he starts prosecuting people who have operated freely for several years.

Moreover, there is now a rapidly expanding industry with a lot of money to spend on political campaigns. 2018 and 2020 will be exciting elections on many levels, but the pot factor will be front and center as never before unless Trump goes pro-pot.
