On one of the rare Little Rock game days, here we present, for those on the fence about seeing the Hogs take on the Dogs, five reasons to go. Plus, the Arkansas Blog has the latest on the HDN soap opera, and  A boy named Sooie is as on point as ever.

ARKANSAS VS. MISSISSIPPI STATE
1 p.m., War Memorial. Sold out.

After last weekend, a lot of dyed-in-the-wool Razorback fans might rather stay home and rake leaves than see the Hogs take on the Dogs on Saturday. In anticipation of that apathy, here are five reasons to swallow it and go cheer: 1. Drinking and eating copious amounts of grilled meats is fun no matter how much the Hogs under-perform. 2. Watching football in short sleeves in mid-November makes for a good anecdote about how crazy Arkansas weather is. 3. Even though Mississippi State is dramatically improved since last year, we'll still probably beat them. 4. It'll probably be our last win of the season. 5. Unless you're a super-fan, it'll be your last chance to catch Peyton Hillis, Marcus Monk, Felix Jones (fingers crossed after that deep thigh bruise) and the greatest running back to ever don Razorback red. Even if they might serve as a reminder for what could've been, an I-was-there image of their individual brilliance might come in handy in the next two years, when, even without Nutt, we're still likely to suck. At this point, I'm just hoping for one last muscle-man pose from McFadden.

  • Executionpalooza

    Appearances count. I was struck by a single sentence over the weekend in a full page of coverage in The New York Times devoted to the killing spree in Arkansas, beginning with a front-page account of the recent flurry of legal filings on pending executions and continuing inside with an interview with Damien Echols, the former death row inmate.

    "God, I hate art," my late friend The Doctor used to say.
  • Not justice

    The strongest, most enduring calls for the death penalty come from those who feel deeply the moral righteousness of "eye-for-an-eye" justice, or retribution. From the depths of pain and the heights of moral offense comes the cry, "The suffering you cause is the suffering you shall receive!" From the true moral insight that punishment should fit the crime, cool logic concludes, "Killers should be killed." Yet I say: retribution yes; death penalty no.
  • Judge Griffen writes about morality, Christian values and executions

    Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen, who blogs at Justice is a verb!, sends along a new post this morning.
  • The Ledell Lee execution thread

    Arkansas Times contributor Jacob Rosenberg is at the Cummins Unit in Grady filing dispatches tonight in advance of the expected execution of Ledell Lee, who was sentenced to death for the Feb. 9, 1993, murder of Debra Reese, 26, who was beaten to death in the bedroom of her home in Jacksonville.
