General Hogspittle

You thought the Hog Opera was over? That it was time to win 10-plus and forget the scandals surrounding Text King Houston Dale? Think again.

The lawyer pursuing Nutt from Fort Smith, Eddie Christian, has filed a huge court pleading today to preserve documents that he thinks can prove a case in his lawsuit that UA officials failed to do their duty to run a reputable football program at Waltonville. The back door to new pleadings are the fruits of an FOI request for e-mails of a state employee who's been madly messaging the Nutt cabal about the spawns of Satan from Springdale. It's a huge filing. Juicy. Lots of insiders throwing down on their enemies, etc.

Sigh. It's too big for me to link at the moment. I'm trying to find a site that has it up.

When I can, I'll give it to you.

In short, though, it seeks to preserve computer files of Teresa Prewett, the Nutt friend whose angry e-mails helped triggered this controversy; Danny Nutt, and Sherry Darby, a friend of the Nutts and state employee whose e-mail the plaintiffs think supports their efforts. An FOI of Darby's work e-mail (shades of Ron Quillin -- don't you bet some legislator is itching to close public e-mails next legislative session?) has opened a whole new window to this sordid mess. Hog message boards are hopping. Here's a link, but it's to a chat board with a sign-in requirement and you may have to go through free registration to read it. Or maybe here.

This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
