Stop the presses

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2007 at 9:57 AM

Master Jess Askew's weird political polemic attempting to intervene in the Little Rock school desegregation case has been denied by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The court also granted intervenor John Walker the delay he sought in appealing Judge Bill Wilson's decision that the LRSD had achieved unitary status and thus could be freed from federal court.

Will the DOG lead the newspaper with this decision, as it did the motion by Master Jess, who sometimes serves as the newspaper's lawyer? Will it ever deign to mention John Walker's pithy response -- loaded with criticism of the DOG -- to the motion in which the newspaper found so much news value? Tomorrow will tell.

The mediation approved by the LR School Board on Walker's appeal will continue. The court asked for a status report by Aug. 27.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
