Open line Thursday

Posted By on Thu, Nov 6, 2008 at 4:41 PM


Hey, if you can burn a flag as symbolic speech, you can certainly hang one upside down.

Neil Deininger of Deininger and Wingfield, said, " "It's a comment on the election and the economy. I'll leave it at that." Deininger, a financial supporter of John McCain, knows a little something about bad investments, we'd add.

Deininger said he planned to leave the flag upside down and at half  staff for a week, but added that it would be righted for Veterans Day.

Thanks, Jimmy H., for the photo.

And let's just make this the OPEN LINE.

PS ON A NEWS STORY: Looks like a recount of the House Dist. 38 race -- Edwards v. Eichler -- has been requested by Eichler and will be held around Nov. 18. By then, the overseas ballot deadline will have passed and every single vote will count. Edwards leads by 74 votes. Ther are some provisional ballots still up in the air.

  • The LR chamber does the public's business. Is it accountable? Blue Hog on the case.

    Matt Campbell, lawyer and Blue Hog Report blogger, has sent a Freedom of Information Act request to Jay Chessir, director of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Mayor Mark Stodola related to the publicity stunt yesterday  built around withdrawing from the mayor's rash pronouncement that the city would seek an Amazon HQ2 project even though the city  didn't meet the company's criteria.

  • 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.
