  • HIP HICK: The hemi guy.
He wants a ‘hemi’ Jon Reep’s comedy shtick includes more than being the “Hemi Guy” from the Dodge Ram commercials, but it’s that TV exposure that’s brought him major fame. Before that, he was already one of the funniest comics in American, playing clubs and colleges all over the U.S. The native North Carolinian’s “hip hick” comedy, impressions, redneck dancing and hilarious stories will be on display at the Loony Bin Comedy Club in West Little Rock Jan. 5-8, with two shows on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 7-8, at p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Call 228-5555 for reservations.

Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for students. Children 12 and under are admitted free, and free child care is available. Call 450-3416 for more information. Lighting up It requires about a three-hour drive from Central Arkansas, but the largest holiday light show in Arkansas, the Lights of the Delta with its 6 million bulbs, will be on display through Friday, Dec. 31. The lights are set up at the southern end of the Arkansas Aeroplex between Blytheville and Gosnell. A loss of electricity because of inclement weather forced the lights off last weekend, so the display, which annually draws about 70,000 onlookers, will continue through Friday, with gates opening at 5 p.m. and closing at 10 p.m. Admission is $10 per vehicle. Call 870-763-2525.

  • 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.
  • Art bull

    "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.
