Blog roundup

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2007 at 10:25 AM

Some weekend Times blog highlights for those who might not read religiously. (Shame on you.)

At Eat Arkansas, we had a couple of items on eating strategies for stupefyingly hot weather. There's a great essay there on Southern folkways in the days before a/c. Meat was considered a "condiment," vegetables and fruits were fresh-picked. Buttermilk and cornbread were a match, remembers Muddling Thourgh.

Last night, I called for open comments under a metaphorical headline, "Hymn Service." The response was literal, lyrical and  interesting. Some spirituality lurks among us. Don't miss Jake da Snake's essay on serving as an organist for weekly services at the State Hospital.

Sunday, Gaddis, responding to a Brummett column on Mike Beebe, wonders whether Beebe will be the Freddie Couples of governors. (This is not a compliment.)

  • 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.
