Let's start a fight. It makes no sense in pouring millions into it to preserve another ballpark. It's all the city has been able to do to restore Lamar Porter and Curran Conway. Raze it. The electrical, plumbing, structural and drainage issues are simply too great to preserve a structure that, for all its memories, isn't particularly interesting in appearance.

Valetine, by the way, has said that if the structure is razed and there's an auction of fixtures, he intends to put the men's room "trough" up for sale, stocked with Pabst, on the Arkansas Times Blog.

    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.
