And speaking of sinning

Posted By on Wed, Dec 20, 2006 at 5:51 PM

Here the subject is drinking, not gambling. The powers-that-be of the River Market (you know who we mean) are hot to allow street drinking at night in the district, to create a Beale Street-type entertainment zone. Guess what? There's great disagreement among merchants and other residents of the neighborhood about this. Some don't want the trash and vomit. Some clubs fear competition from street booze vendors. Some fear bad traffic.

Jim Harris, on the Little Rocking Blog, covered a neighborhood meeting on the subject today. Check it out. So far, they refuse to support legislation that would amend the law to allow such zones in Arkansas cities.

  • 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.
