Patriots far and wide have been cheering like folks at a buffet when a new trough of baked beans has been served by the news that Hot Springs shooting range owner Jan Morgan has declared her business to be a “Muslim free Zone.”
On her website, in her piece “Why I Want My Range to be a Muslim Free Zone” - http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:-vOg-nXmaJYJ:janmorganmedia.com/2014/09/business-muslim-free-zone/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a - Morgan lists her reasons, which include:
Like so many non-Muslims, she claims to have read the Koran, understands it, and is familiar with the verses which command Muslims to do terrible things to those of us who refuse to “submit” or convert to Islam.
It all began as a quest to discover something - anything - about the elusive Armistead C. Freeman III, Republican candidate for Washington County Quorum Court, a man who seems to have left no virtual footprints anywhere, let alone a carbon footprint.
I have wondered about this for some time, but it came to a head last week, after watching David Tennant (Doctor Who, Hamlet) forcing out an American accent on Gracepoint, the American remake of Britain’s Broadchurch, on which Tennant also starred - but to much greater effect, since he didn’t have to force out a fake American accent.

The Men With Bad Haircuts in the Oklahoma legislature, taking a break from their almost constant effort to protect the Second Amendment from all enemies foreign and domestic, may soon create a public online registry of those who have been convicted of making meth.
“By the time the player is drafted, there's a pretty good chance he's thoroughly spoiled and surrounded by enablers.” - former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Troy Vincent
“If society in general, the teammates of these athletes, and the athletic organizations do nothing to reduce the occurrence of this violent behavior, then the number of incidents will continue to rise.
If there is anything especially ironic about this, it is the fact that a fellow gathering signatures for a proposed special election dealing with Fayetteville's human rights ordinance has been at the same location in recent days.
Getting ready to leave for the Dark Heart of America, Tracy and I had to pass into a building (for legal papers) which had before its doors a man collecting signatures for the expected special election on Fayetteville’s human rights ordinance.
If the Democratic Party of Arkansas has a future, it is in people like Clarke Tucker, the Democratic nominee to succeed term-limited John Edwards in representing House District 35 — the Heights and northwestern Little Rock.
Ernest Dumas is back from vacation with a column that chronicles abundant good news in the land and an electorate that either pays it no mind or disbelieves anything could be good on Barack Obama's watch.
