ABC to Benton: Cheers!

Posted By on Thu, Aug 21, 2008 at 6:12 AM

The dampening of Arkansas's dry counties, thanks to a little legislative legerdemain a few years back, continues apace. Faulkner and Craighead are already awash in, ahem, private clubs dispensing booze. Saline County is getting into the act.

Yesterday, the ABC approved a second drinks permit for a conventional Saline restaurant -- an Applebee's in Benton. Dizzy's previously had the monopoly (in addition to some traditional pure private club outlets.) There will be more, of course. Got to have booze to get that convention business, see.

    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.
