One pissed-off bear, Ursus horribilis arkansii. Lives in a cave.

  • Ask the Times: What's the deal with personalized license plates?

    I was at the state revenue office in Springdale getting a driver-license renewal. I saw a framed poster on the wall promoting the sale of the "Choose Life" license plate. There was only one other such poster on the wall in the entire place, one promoting the sale of so-called wildlife plates that benefit the Game and Fish Commission and the hunting industry.

  • Barth: Ethics overhaul would win the vote

    A bit over a year ago in this space, I made the case that if presented the opportunity at the ballot box, Arkansas voters would ratify a significant ethics overhaul. Recent polling on the Regnat Populus initiative, which had its ballot title cleared by the attorney general last week so that petition signature gathering can begin, supports that analysis.

Re: “Blue Hog finds similarities between Dexter Suggs' doctoral work and somebody else's

Joe Quimby,

Have I missed a juicy scandal since leaving D'Arkansas, or are you referring to the previous football coach's mistress and motorcycle mama?

Re: “No need to wait for city attorney opinion about Little Rock civil rights ordinance

I wonder how many people in Indiana who are former supporters of Mike Pence are now anti-Mike because he caved in to pressure from Big Business and backtracked on his anti-equality agenda? If I were a right winger I'd have Mike's picture on the dart board for that. Luckily for everyone, 2/3 of Indianans have Mike on their dart boards now!

Re: “The education of Jerry Cox continues

Name calling is not helpful and besides, vermin don't appreciate being equated with certain members of the human species.

Re: “LR Port Authority wants concession from Quapaws

This is such a beautiful story. Go Quapaws, Go! I can't wait to see their casino rise on the Arkansas River. In an industrial park, no less.

Re: “Attorney general rejects wording of referendum on gay discrimination law

Whoever is behind this repeal thing is pissing in the foul wind that blows through D'Arkansas these days. If it gets on the ballot it will fail. This Razorback Red State has gotta have its hate!

Re: “Arkansas passes an 11 Commandments bill

Um, that was the Scarecrow who lacked a brain. But your point is otherwise well taken.
