Best of Arkansas 2015 

magnum-2.jpg

To prove that Arkansas's variety of exemplary places, people and things is inexhaustible, the Arkansas Times once again presents the Best of Arkansas. This year's issue includes, as ever, a list of our readers' choices in categories ranging from lingerie to liquor stores, a longer look at some of the winners and our own Editors' Picks. David Koon ponders Sen. Jason Rapert and takes a seat at Breckenridge Village — one of those huge, luxe recliners with cup holders, so comfortable you'll watch the credits until the very end. Will Stephenson interviews poet Bryan Borland about his publishing house, the award-winning Sibling Rivalry Press, whose output has won a space in the Library of Congress. Lindsey Millar delves into Hall High and headbands in a Q&A with former Razorback basketball player Bobby Portis. Leslie Newell Peacock, weary of fixing things with a bent coat hanger, visits Fuller and Son hardware for that peace that surpasses all our misunderstandings of plumbing and the like. Benjamin Hardy, wondering if it's possible for a reporter to be dapper, checks out men's clothing winner The Independent. Kaya Herron finds sweet relief with a hot stone massage at Rejuvenation spa. Also find a list of Natural State superlatives contributed by correspondents willing to share their personal bests.

  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
