How hot is it? Better question: how slow is it? The governor's weekly radio address is about the heat.

Arkansas’s heat wave has left many individuals scrambling and sweating, but weather forecasts indicate that relief is near. Until that time, stay safe and use caution to protect yourself and family members from preventable heat-related injuries.

And if that doesn't excite you, here's some fun and games. Mike Huckabee played a little ping pong during a visit to NPR for a softball interview.

Huckabee did better at ping pong than he did at the Illinois State Fair Republican straw poll. He finished 6th place, with 3 percent of 922 votes cast. Romney on top, then Thompson.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
