A Blog reader in Benton County responds to our call for community journalists to chronicle the passing scene. The striped mannequin appears near a sign promoting the sheriff candidacy of wildman Andy Lee. You have to be a careful observer of local happenings to get the whole tableau. Clearly, the inmate is not for Andy, whose sign is a few feet away. But the mannequin also bears a gang tatto, a subtle reference to Lee's campaign jab that the current sheriff didn't recognize a gang tatto on a suspect in a recent road rage killing.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
