Public service announcement

Posted By on Tue, Feb 27, 2007 at 7:58 AM

Quiz Bowl happens to be a competition near and dear and so I'm happy to plug an event organized by the Parkview High Quiz Bowl team. It's hosting a middle school Quiz Bowl tournament at Parkview Saturday March 17 as a benefit for Darfur. All team entry fees will go to humanitarian aid in Darfur. The Pulaski Academy chapter of Amnesty International will present a short program on the conflict in Darfur before the preliminary rounds begin.

You can drop in at any time. Smart kids from middle schools all over Central Arkansas will astound you with their knowledge in a good cause. I'll be moderating the final round, sometime between 2 and 3 p.m.

    Donald Trump gave a remarkable interview to the New York Times yesterday in which he declared open season on the marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton's past infidelity. Seems like a loser, but I've been wrong before.
