Inhuman America

Our history has included some evil passages — slavery and white supremacy, the forced removal of Native Americans from their homes, the imprisonment and dispossession of Japanese Americans during World War II, the torture of prisoners in latter-day wars — but it is also a part of our history that we came to officially regard them all with shame, as offenses to the human rights that were our original values. /more/

Sunday line and an Arkansas movie trailer


Here's an open line.

And check out the new trailer for "Blaze," a new film by actor/director Ethan Hawke about the life of Blaze Folely, a cult singer/songwriter born in Arkansas. Little Rock native Ben Dickey makes his big screen debut at Dickey; his performance won him an acting prize at Sundance and has drawn critical raves.

No word yet on when it'll be in Little Rock.

Hucakbee interviews Trump


In an interview with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee that aired last night on TBN, President Trump calls the reporting on how thin the nuclear agreement with North Korea is "treasonous" and suggests that the U.S. should stop providing aid to Honduras and other countries where immigrants are fleeing unspeakable violence in search of a better life.
