Gunplay at Ark. Tech

Posted By on Tue, Mar 11, 2008 at 11:47 AM

Arkansas Tech President Robert Brown spent a lot of time and personal capital recently worrying about the firing of a glorified cap pistol during the production of a student play.

It would appear he ought to give a bit more concern to REAL gunfire by "student-athletes" at Tech. The Courier in Russellville is reporting today on the arrest of three men, including two football players, for pumping 30 rounds into a car near a city park. The article includes assorted other incidents of thuggery involving athletes and a university administration not particularly forthcoming on the subject.

PLAY TICKETS: That controversial play, "Assassins," opens Friday at Tech. Call 479-968-0274 for tickets.

  • 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.
