More foster home woes

Posted By on Wed, Oct 29, 2008 at 5:46 PM

The Beebe administration is apparently serious about cleaning up foster care problems in Arkansas. And, it should be noted, there are problems to solve.

We report in The Insider today that foster children -- and some biological children -- have been removed from 13 homes because of suspected abuse or neglect. Please note that married couples were at the heads of eight of those homes (single women headed the others), some indication that a marriage license isn't a guarantee of good nurturing as the Family Council would have you believe in their campaign to further limit the ability to place kids in foster and adoptive homes. But anybody's who spent a day in divorce court knows that.

  • 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.
