Sports, literary figures talk politics

Posted By on Thu, Sep 21, 2006 at 10:45 AM

The guest segment on tomorrow night's edition of Unconventional Wisdom will feature Arkansas Democrat-Gazette sports editor Wally Hall and Oxford American magazine editor and publisher Marc Smirnoff.

The idea was to bring on two people who aren't involved in politics to discuss their perspectives on the campaigns in Arkansas this year. During the interview, Hall and Smirnoff react to Mike Beebe's and Asa Hutchinson's 30-second TV ads and offer their opinions on the candidates. They also talk about how they arrive at their decisions about who to vote for.

The show airs on AETN this Friday at 6:30 p.m. and will repeat on Sunday at noon. You can also watch it on the Internet at aetn.org (scroll down to "streaming media" on the home page).

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
