Friendly skies

We meant to mention earlier, in noting our Insider item on the big china-and-crystal gift to Janet Huckabee, another amusing item there.

Mrs. Huckabee and rising Gov. Mike Beebe are going on a jaunt in the State Police airplane this weekend, to a National Governors Association conference at which Mrs. Huckabee will talk to incoming first spouses and Beebe will learn some of the ropes of his new job. We asked Beebe's people why he didn't fly commercial. In a week when it's been easy for menfolk to blame poor Janet for everything, Beebe's spokesman replied that Mrs. Huckabee had already checked out the plane and said Beebe could go along.

We'd fly commercial. For a variety of reasons.

In all seriousness, Mr. Beebe, our representatives and senators fly commercial. The governor should do the same, as often as possible. We know that's not the Huckabee way.
