Here's looking at you

Greetings from Chicago, where I enjoyed this salad at brunch at Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill, as good a Mexican restaurant as you're likely to encounter. The salad is composed of slices of jicama, cucumber and pineapple and dusted with fiery chili powder and other ground spices. Check the Eat Arkansas blog for a shot of my main dish, if the subject interests you.

We saw "Jersey Boys," the story of the Four Seasons, and it was a rip-roaring hit with the big crowd. We also saw, unbelievably, the first official day of Christmas shopping at what once was Marshall Field, but is now Macy's. They turned the giant Christmas tree on today and the line for photos in front of it (we didn't participate) was 90 minutes or more. It's at least two weeks too early for "Little Drummer Boy" for my taste. Pizza is on the card tonight, I'm pretty sure.

The e-mail has piled up since 4:30 a.m. this morning, but not much big news.

Norman Mailer died. There's an Arkie angle, of course, his wife Norris Church Mailer .... I see the Hogs were thrashed in Tennessee.  Will all the assistant coaches with long-term contracts get big payoffs when Houston departs at the end of the year? ...

I'll check back tomorrow, most likely. Have fun tonight.

  • 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.

    If he can't kill it outright, Donald Trump will do all he can to cripple Obamacare. Vox has detailed reporting on deep cuts in federal spending that support nonprofit agencies that help people sign up for coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
