Quiet competence

Posted By on Sun, Sep 7, 2008 at 8:07 AM

Brummett praises same in Gov. Mike Beebe, an example being his appointment of Elana Wills to a Supreme Court vacancy, rather than a political pal.

I'll buy that.

But I'll buy it more when Beebe begins to show some public leadership and accountablity -- with results -- on the horror and shame that is our state agency that "protects" at-risk children. It would be nice if he'd just decide to speak publicly on 1) what knowledge prompted him to undertake a reform of the agency 2) whether steps have been taken against ANYONE involved with the four deaths and one near-death of children who've passed under the "attention" of the agency 3) how he feels about further terrible events occurring AFTER the supposed reform has commenced?

  • 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.
