New this week

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2007 at 5:52 PM

The new Ark. Times is on the web. Among the items:

The cover story: LR native filmmaker Jeff Nichols and his acclaimed "Shotgun Stories," premiering here this week.

Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks is coming to town next week for a demonstration in behalf of the West Memphis Three. I heard today, too, that Larry King may bring his show here for the event. I'm sure THAT will move Mike Beebe.

Meet Chris Lemley, an Atkins native, who's a big name in professional video gaming.

Road trip: Some Arkansas Republicans are heading to Iowa to campaign AGAINST Mike Huckabee. John Williams' article includes quotes from former Huckabee staffers with bones to pick with the would-be president.

Ernie Dumas reviews a key frailty in the would-be president -- dishonesty.

Then there's Gauldin.


(Corrected version. Initial version said Dumond pardon, rather than parole.)

  • 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.
