Aurora fallout in LR 

The mass shooting at a Colorado theater during the showing of a Batman movie left people antsy all over the country. In Little Rock, for example, police distributed this notice for the weekend after the shooting:

"Although the Little Rock Police Department has not received any known threats a Directed Patrol has been put in effect for all movie theatres in the City of Little Rock.  From now until Monday, July 23, 2012, officers are required to check theatres in their respective districts and document each patrol. 

"Should an officer receive a call concerning suspicious activity at a specific location, the officer will complete an incident report documenting the incident. All Directed Patrol documents, along with copies of incident reports pertaining to this directive, will be forwarded to Captain Michael Davis."

    Old habits die hard. We may have a new Republican majority in the legislature, but like the old Democratic majority, it still doesn't hurt to have a lawmaker spouse to land a part-time job during the legislative session.

  • 'Circuit breaker' legal

    When we first asked Gov. Mike Beebe about the "circuit breaker" idea out of Arizona (automatically opting out of Medicaid expansion if the feds reduce the matching rates in the future), he said it was fine but noted that states can already opt out at any time, an assurance he got in writing from the feds.

  • Church goes to school in Conway

    An interesting controversy is brewing in Conway Public Schools, periodically a scene of discord as more liberal constituents object to the heavy dose of religion that powerful local churches have tried to inject into the schools, particularly in sex education short on science and long on abstinence.

  • Aging well

    The Observer's father developed a dairy allergy toward the end of his high school years, the product of a bona fide milkoholism Yours Truly duly inherited. Our affection for the 2 percent runs as deep as the wellspring of chocolate syrup we've preserved in The Observatory's refrigerator door for so many-odd years. You might then sympathize with our frustration (and our nausea) when, one recent night, we pulled out the gallon jug and encountered a mostly liquid solution. Hard to believe that stomach-turning goop is the stuff delicious cheese is made from.
