I'm a native Arkansan who outgrew parochialism, thanks in no small measure to Hendrix College, that oasis of liberal arts and open-minded pursuits. I have… More »

Re: “Legislation repudiates Supreme Court ruling on marriage

Indeed, Ollie! I'm shocked and disappointed that my senator was too cowardly to join this brave fight agin the Adam&Steve gang. And I'm gonna post a castigating criticism about it on his facebook page!

Oh, wait-- no, I can't. Rapert blocked me. Of course.

Re: “A town hall for the rest of us

"Doctor David" [Lipschitz] was in the house-- first person to comment after the invited speakers. I find it compelling to hear so many foreign-born pillars of our community say, "This isn't the America for which I left everything behind."

Re: “1.73-carat diamond found at Crater of Diamonds State Park

"Nearly a year of searching led to 2017's third-largest diamond find"

2017?! Time warp? Is my recollection of what I thought was a miserable 2016 actually just a bad dream?!

Re: “Arkansas Democrats' rocky road forward

Being pro-gun isn't going to be enough in this state. Nearly everyone who's ever run as a Democrat here was pro-gun. Connor Eldridge's position:

"As a senator and a strong advocate for the Second Amendment, I would work to encourage what I did as a prosecutor: enforcing the gun laws already on the books. I would also work to find long-term legislative solutions that improve the background check system, strengthen mental health treatment in this country and keep weapons out of the hands of suspected terrorists -- and all while defending the constitutional rights of law-abiding American citizens."

Abortion is a MUCH bigger elephant in the stateroom. The Democratic Party will not yield on that one, I'm sure. And most Arkansans will vote for a rabid, philandering Cheetoh so long as it says it will overturn Roe v. Wade.

I wish just one of them could show me the passage in the Bible where abortion is verboten. To the contrary, I can find 4 or 5 where it appears to be sanctioned by the Big Guy (especially when used as an act of war).

Re: “The Rev. Rapert wants to rename Clinton airport

Just for the record, Rapert blocks from following his Tweets each and every constituent who has ever questioned anything he has said or done. So, all his polls tend to be a tad skewed.

Re: “Church and State: Sen. Rapert shall lead them to light

Well, if one wants to be literal, the cases pending against Trump are civil, not criminal.

Re: “Molly Miller suspends race for Little Rock City Board

I wonder if she intentionally made the announcement on World Mental Health Day? At any rate, I wish her the best. I met her at one of her rallies, and she seemed like something this town needs a big dose of!
