Beebe and Nick

Posted By on Tue, Oct 31, 2006 at 5:35 AM

Brummett rises to the defense of Mike Beebe on the Republican attack of his role as senator in Nick Wilson's nefarious ways.

A couple more of my own thoughts on this subject: The Republicans' ad suggesting that Beebe was specifically and personally responsible for Nick's remaining in the adjourned Senate for a few weeks and otherwise directly complicit in illegal activities is one of the most dishonest of the season. The Huckster's ad about how he cleaned up Arkansas is the most laughable.  His administration has been a model of favors for insiders, punishment for outsiders and utter secrecy over all of it. It began with him charging taxpayers to do his shirts and ends with him using the apparatus of government and occasionally its State Police plane to run for governor  president. If you say he's doing no different than many others before him, my point would be: exactly.

  • 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.
