A choice, not an echo 

Cotton might try a different tack, appealing to a bloc usually ignored. In Oklahoma City, Satanists have applied to put a tasteful statue representing their cause on the steps of the Capitol, suggesting there are voters in this previously unrecognized interest group, voters probably ready to back any candidate who solicits them. Satanists are already running things in South Carolina.

But we doubt there's a sizable satanic vote in Arkansas. Spiritually, it's a long way from Fort Smith to that big new casino across the river. Family Council members have assured us.

    The plan, formulated months ago, was this: Ellen and I were going to go to Washington for inauguration festivities, then fly out the morning after the balls for Panama City and a long planned cruise to begin with a Panama Canal passage.
  • Who needs courts?

  • The end of an era

    We're sad to report that Doug Smith has decided to retire. Though he's been listed as an associate editor on our masthead for the last 22 years, he has in fact been the conscience of the Arkansas Times. He has written all but a handful of our unsigned editorials since we introduced an opinion page in 1992.

  • A stand for equality

    Last week, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel became the first elected statewide official to express support for same-sex marriage. His announcement came days before Circuit Judge Chris Piazza is expected to rule on a challenge to the state's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Soon after, a federal challenge of the law is expected to move forward. McDaniel has pledged to "zealously" defend the Arkansas Constitution but said he wanted the public to know where he stood.

  • Same old, same old

    Remarking as we were on the dreariness of this year's election campaigns, we failed to pay sufficient tribute to the NRA, one of the most unsavory and, in its predictability, dullest of the biennial participants in the passing political parade.
