Sex and Trump

No one, least of all Donald Trump, should be surprised when sex puts him in mortal jeopardy, which seemed to be the case last week when his personal lawyer pleaded guilty to violating the law by arranging $280,000 in hush payments to a porn actress and a Playboy model who were prepared to tell voters about having sex with him. /more/

No leash

Living as I do in the remote provinces, I often find myself fascinated by the cultural advances of America's great metropolises. Last week, for example, The New York Times featured an entertaining column urging people to walk cats on leashes. If I tried that, I'd definitely have a fight on my hands. /more/

Back to square one

December 13, 2018
After an impressive six-game run that was punctuated with a rout of Colorado State in Fort Collins, Colo. — exacting some small measure of vengeance for the Rams beating the football Hogs there in a crushing defeat in September — the Arkansas Razorbacks came back to a pretty lively Saturday afternoon gathering in Bud Walton Arena to take on a 4-4 Western Kentucky team that, based on its record alone, appeared average at best. /more/

  • I WAS FRAMED: Civil rights attorneys Mike Laux (left) and Ben Crump (right) stand before several victims of the LRPD's "unconstitutional, unethical" no-knock search warrants who have recently come forward. From left to right: Rachel Salley, Derrick Davis Jr., Susan Davenport, Candice Caldwell, Charles Schelley Jr., Kaniya Waddle and Lloyd St. Clair.

In a press conference on Tuesday morning, civil rights attorneys Ben Crump and Mike Laux introduced several people the attorneys described as victims of "unconstitutional, unethical" no-knock search warrants by the Little Rock Police Department. In addition to the stories of Roderick Talley, Candice Caldwell and Derrick Davis Jr., which were shared at previous press conferences the attorneys held, nine additional individuals shared brief testimonies of the LRPD blowing off their doors and looking for drugs, only to have the charges later reduced or dropped completely when little to no drugs were found. For some, those charges are still pending. Among the individuals who came forward was Lloyd St. Clair, a Little Rock resident who was shot three times in September 2016 when his home was raided by the LRPD.

  • ABOVE THE ETHICS LAW: New Supreme Court justice.
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has dismissed numerous judicial ethics complaints against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh because the law exempts Supreme Court members, even for acts committed as a judge covered by the law. In short: the man known to his high school running buddies as Bart O'Kavanaugh is above the law.

The Capital's Seafood House opens

click to enlarge seafood_house.jpg
Finally, Little Rock has the Seafood Burger, the creation of retired Green Bay Packer linebacker K.D. Williams, thanks to the opening of Williams’ The Capital’s Seafood House, 1706 W. Third St., across from the state Capitol. Williams, who played for Henderson State University, is bringing to Little Rock the seafood specialties he serves at his Tampa, Fla., restaurant, K&D Crustaceans.

The Capital’s Seafood House officially opened its doors Monday. The menu includes lobster tails from Maine, crab and shrimp from Louisiana, pasta, po’boys and more. The Seafood Burger is a combination of lobster, crab and shrimp and is $17 (it comes with fries). General manager Tonya Dyson also talked up the lobster roll ($15). The full menu is supposed to go up this week at thecapitalseafoodhouse.com. Prince Williams is chef.

Hours are 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. The phone number is 214-1441, but on Monday at least it was answered with a recording saying the restaurant had not yet opened. Hang on though, because the call then goes through to the restaurant.
