Droopy drawers rule

Jet-lagged, I crashed early last night and thus missed an on-the-scene report from Pine Bluff on the failure of the ordinance to criminalize displays of underwear, the so-called saggy pants ordinance:

The ordinance was heard by the public safety committee before the city council meeting.  Then at the city council meeting which followed, it was announced that the sponsor of the ordinance withdrew it from consideration.  He said he was withdrawing it because of lack of support on the council and with the Mayor.  There were 8 people lined up to speak on the ordinance, but that was all mooted.    The mayor gave a very thorough and thoughtful speech about why he did not support the ordinance.  City officials asked for public participation, financial and other support for positive measures planned for youth.

  • 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.
