OBU excitement

Posted By on Mon, Mar 26, 2007 at 6:38 PM

I visited today with press in town for big events at Ouachita Baptist University this week, the investiture of new president Dr. Rex Horne.

Bill Clinton, once pastored by Dr. Horne, will speak at OBU tomorrow. The formal ceremony is Thursday. We're told the situation is as before, famed OBU alumnus Mike Huckabee, who's donated his papers to OBU (and wouldn't we like to see them some day) and is slated to have a part-time spot on the faculty, won't be on hand. He's campaigning for president. Gov. Mike Beebe, an ASU grad, will lend his office to the occasion

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
