  • Visionary Arkansans 2014

    They make an impact in science, arts, social justice.
  • Randy Alexander wants to tell you a story about a young man who thought he was a dog

    Also, Mark Pryor owns up to voting for something that rhymes with Rowbomacare, Mark Darr is a deadbeat, Harrison struggles with African geography and Arkansas health care gets a boost.
  • Remembering Howard Baker

  • Homicide Diary: Sgt. Willie Davis

  • 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.
