A bridge to Argenta

Or a bridge to Little Rock, depending on your point of view.

Assorted dignitaries turned out Saturday morning for the dedication of the new pedestrian link over the Arkansas River on the old Junction Bridge, once a railroad span.

Lots of folks turned out to try it on a splendid spring day. And on to the rest of the day's events. The Little Rock Film Festival drew great crowds at venues large and small.

I've done a tripleheader at the Little Rock Film Festival so far today. "The Promotion" (stars Seann William Scott and John C. Reilly, above, vying for promotions as Chicago supermarket managers) was a sellout and had plenty of laughs. "Lioness" was another moving tribute to the sacrifices of our troops in Iraq, particularly female troops, and included a guest appearance by Shannon Morgan, the soldier from Mena, who's a key character in the documentary about women in unexpected combat roles. "Beyond the Call," a documentary about three Americans who mount independent relief efforts in godforsaken places also was a winner.
