What's cooking, July 26 

There's a new option for the long barbecue-deficient River Market. Tucked in the parking lot beyond the eastern wall of the Flying Saucer, the Big Boar BBQ stand is serving beef brisket, pork, chicken, ribs, hot dogs, nachos and more for lunch, dinner and — for River Market revelers — late-night cravings. Currently, the eatery's hours are limited to Friday and Saturday, from 11:30 a.m. all the way up to 2 a.m., but co-owners John Batton and Mark Washam hope to expand those, starting Aug. 3, to include Tuesday through Thursday, when they'll be open from 11:30 a.m. until at least midnight. Sunday and Monday, the stand will be closed.

Even though it's big and red, the trailer is obscured by Flying Saucer, an adjacent ATM and parked cars to such a degree that first-timers will have to let their noses guide them. The rolling stand's telephone number is 580-2064.

  • 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.
