Re: “Sen. Joyce Elliott urges NO vote on Little Rock school tax

Yes, Maxifer, that's been my concern, too. I'm a big public school supporter, and I have a child in public school now. Supposedly, we will finally get some much-needed major repairs to the school done if the measure passes. But I must admit to mixed feelings about this millage for all the reasons Elliott cites. And why should I trust that Key/Poole will spend that money for the benefit of our schools, and my kid's school specifically? But voting down a measure for the schools leaves me feeling like a jerk, too.

Re: “The ghost of J. Edgar: Evidence mounts of FBI vendetta against Hillary

Very interesting. The timing of all of this information from the FBI is suspect. This whole Russia/Trump/Republican nexus brought to mind the Robert Hanssen FBI spy case from several years ago. Makes one wonder if Russia has another asset at the FBI. Wouldn't be too hard to fit in with the homegrown anti-Clinton sentiment. Pure speculation, of course, but it doesn't seem so far-fetched in this crazy election cycle.

Re: “Medicaid expansion legislation continues toward finish line, but Tea Party senators threaten to shut down government to block it

So this means they'll be cutting off Medicaid for Rep. Josh Miller, too, right?

Re: “Indiana Wesleyan University 'aware' of plagiarism allegation against Dexter Suggs

How is it that the Arkansas DemoZette still isn't "aware" of this story?

Max, you might be interested in what Blue Hog posted today re: troubles with FOIA requests to the LRSD in the Teresa Gordon personnel matter. Had to send a lawyer letter to get a response.

Re: “TGIF open line: Plus, a historic session and a new Supreme Court clerk

Let me also add my thanks to Norma for the link to "Broken Heart Land." I, too, watched it and found it deeply affecting. It was wrenching to watch the conservative and very loving parents in this story come to terms not only with their gay son's suicide but the ways in which their long-held political beliefs seemed at odds with their desire to see a world more accepting of those in the LGBTQ community. As mag notes above, these kids are not just "gay kids" or "kids with HIV," they are our kids (and our siblings, friends, moms, dads, etc).

Re: “Sheridan High squelches yearbook profile of gay student

The Center for Artistic Revolution here in Little Rock might also be a useful resource for this student. They have helped other students in Arkansas navigate school difficulties.
