Open up

Right now, Max has a lobster-stained bib on. Here's an official open line for the rest of us.

PS from Max -- Yes, I had a lobster roll and fried clams at Bob's Clam Shack in Kittery, then motored on to Freeport for the obligatory visit to L.L. Bean. John Hiatt was playing a concert outside in cool weather.

PPS -- A gratuitous late hit on an article in the morning D-G -- its followup (our role unacknowledged) to our stories on special housing deals for Young Republicans who attend UCA. How did state Rep. Michael Lamoureux happen to horn his way into the story with comments on the situation? He who appeared from nowhere with the political witch hunt alibi for obvious influence peddling at UCA. Of course he volunteered himself into the picture not so much to cover for President Lu Hardin, who has bigger issues to cope with, but to cover for state Sen. Gilbert Baker, who hasgrazed off the fatted UCA Bear for years. The Repubs need to come up with some cover for Baker in his tough re-election battle. For now it's crying that it's no fair for the mean old nasty newspapers to point out the deals the Baker family enjoys that aren't available to other UCA students. Witch hunt vs. special favors? I think Conway folks will see through that nonsense. Stay tuned for some more Baker special dealing at UCA this week.

PPPS -- Archaeopteryx, belated congrats on winning the veep sweep. The Hop chili dog is yours for the claiming. Come on by Markham and Scott any time and I'll treat you to lunch, sody pop included. Or send me a mailing address and I'll send you a coupon.

Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.

  • 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.
