2) A reminder that you can still make a reservation to hear ABC's George Stephanopoulous speak at 12:30 p.m. today at the Statehouse Convention Center, a program of the Clinton School of Public Service.

3) AT&T will announce a major (UPDATE: $75,000) contribution this morning to a campaign to restore the house of civil rights leaders L.C. and Daisy Bates as a musuem.

4) News that the Sunday issue of the Democrat-Gazette NW Edition carried the following marriage license on page 5D:

Michael Rue Masterson, 59, and Laurie Lee Taylor, 40, both of Fayetteville. He's the Democrat-Gazette columnist. She was a leader in the protest over some books with sexual content stocked in Fayetteville public school libraries.
