Breakout: A.G.

Posted By on Sat, May 13, 2006 at 5:51 PM

A reader had a good idea: some separate threads on political races. Let's make this one the race for attorney general. Over coffee this morning, a veteran lobbyist repeats something he'd heard from a major political player, suggesting polls in the three-way Democratic race show the candidates bunched closely with a large undecided.

Our opinion: Suskie has a pretty good TV spot up, emphasizing electric rates and his work against crack houses. McDaniel's ad is fine, but his specifics didn't strike us as quite as compelling. Haven't seen Herzfeld's. (Take it back: just saw his tough-on-crime spot. Not much, particularly since the office doesn't have a criminal role except to handle criminal appeals.)

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
