The morning Huck

Posted By on Mon, Dec 31, 2007 at 7:25 AM

ACTS OF GOD: LA Times replays the legislative dispute when then-Gov. Mike Huckabee rejected age-old language in law relating to insurance coverage of natural disasters. Yes, his religion did get intertwined in public affairs -- sometimes, as legislators quoted here say, in silly and petty ways.

IOWA ON $5 A DAY: LA Times evaluates Mike Huckabee's schedule. They find it emphasizes free media opportunities and small financial outlays. This strategy works particularly well when the media give you an easy time, as they did for the first several months of Huck's run.

DON'T BOTHER ME WITH DETAILS: In a long Q&A with Time, Huckabee pretty well concedes he lacks backup specifics for many of the broad things he espouses. That will come later. In other words, it's just words, signifying not much. But he says that nobody would be paying attention if he had details, which is true to a great degree.

  • 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.
