NWA liberal haven

Posted By on Thu, Nov 6, 2008 at 12:05 PM

I challenged The Iconoclast to better Hillcrest's voting record Tuesday. He/she has trumped me.

Returns from Fayetteville Precinct 5. CS informs me the boundaries are Dickson St. on the south; College on the east, North Street on the north and the campus on the west.

CONGRESS: Abel Tomlinson (Green), 472, or 65.8 percent; U.S. Rep. John Boozman (GOP), 245, or 34.1 percent.

ACT I: For, 118 or 16.3 percent; Against, 602, or 83.6 percent.

FOR LENIENT MARIJUANA ENFORCEMENT: For, 599, or 85.5 percent; Against, 101, or 14.4 percent

Meet you at Maxine's. The pitcher is on me. You'll have to supply the weed.

On the jump, a late-arriving boast from Hendrix College.


Jay Barth notes the vote at the Hendrix campus voting site for students:

President: Obama 249 (81.9 percent) McCain 51.

Act 1: For 39 (13.4%), Against 250 (86.6%)

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
