Oh, what a beautiful morning

Posted By on Sat, May 3, 2008 at 7:07 AM

It seems like the weather is always this way after terrible storm systems. Small comfort.

Busy day.

There's the adult spelling bee of Pulaski County, with spellers facing off at 2 p.m. at Pulaski Heights Christian Church. State Rep. Dan Greenberg won last year. UPDATE: Emily Paul, a Little Rock lawyer, won this year's competition. (Rep. Greenberg was a judge. Winners must sit out a year before competing again.)

There's the Kentucky Derby. My choice: Eight Belles. Why? Sex preference and the evocation of a pub (pictured above) in the Cotswolds, Chipping Campden, where Ellen and I once spent a pleasant Sunday afternoon. We joined the after-church crowd for braised lamb, ale and rasperries-and-cream ice cream.

A fund-raiser for the group that has organized to oppose the ballot initiative to punish gay people by putting new restrictions on adoption and foster parenting.

Anything else? Strawberries, of course.

  • 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.
