Huckabee falls in line

Posted By on Sun, Oct 15, 2006 at 6:03 AM

Lame duck Gov. Mike Huckabee tells Brummett that he now supports instant removal of the full sales tax on groceries, as would-be Republican successor A$a does. Huckabee does a better job of making the case, Brummett notes. That is, if state needs come up short, then new taxes might have to be considered.

Noted: Huckabee says he and Beebe were still right to fight the intitiated act to remove the tax in 2002. This, you might have noticed, is not Hutchinson's view.

  • 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.
