Re: “Mea culpa open line

Thanks for the comments. Like David said, we're sorry we dropped the ball. The weekend was a perfect storm of conferences and moving and trips to places where the internet doesn't work. We'll work to ensure that kind of lapse doesn't happen again. Back-up plans for back-up plans and so forth.

As for the future, I'm counting on Max living to 100 and never being able to quit the blog. If that doesn't work out, we'll expand on what we've tried to do in recent years. We'll introduce more voices. We'll dig deep into more topics that matter to you (a la health care and Mayflower). We'll mix more feature-y content (like http://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/archi…). And we'll continue what's been probably a decade-long transition for the Times into a digital-first publication, where everything you read in print appears, in some version or other, on the blog first.

As always, please hit me up with questions or critiques.

P.S.: Good to hear from you again, Norma. Since you left, no one has complained (to me at least) of not being able to login to the paywall. Hope you'll come back.

Re: “Let's talk about the Travs' new swamp possum mascot

@aproud I thought Shelly was a moose or a kangaroo, but the Travs' site says horse.

Re: “George Washington's open line — apartments burn, Marion Berry smoking about Pryor criticism and is Jane English flipping on private option?

Perplexed: In the first afternoon of posting under this new setup, we put several things that typically would've gone on the jump--like letters and news releases--on a second page to keep posts uncluttered. But I appreciate your take. We may change course.

Re: “George Washington's open line — apartments burn, Marion Berry smoking about Pryor criticism and is Jane English flipping on private option?

As ever the goal with new format is to make the setup more user friendly. If you read everything that appears on the Arkansas Blog, this will indeed slow you down. But most of our readers don't read everything. They scan headlines and first paragraphs and read on in the posts they care about. As more and more of our readers move to mobile and tablet, we wanted to make it easier for them to scroll through our posts.

This format is the norm online.

The change doesn't affect load time. If anything, elWood, we've improved page speed in recent years. Google's Pagespeed Insights is the go-to tool for testing webpage speed (https://developers.google.com/speed/pagesp…). Compare http://arktimes.com/ to your favorite website. It beats the DG, http://nytimes.com/ and CNN.

But we're working to streamline things even further. We've got several improvements slated to roll out later this year.

Suggestions? Complaints? Feel free to email or call anytime.
