Leading the way

Speaking of The Leader: Looking to link its page in the earlier item on LRAFB, I was were reminded of its consistently strong voice on local issues. For example, the editorials this week:

1) Fault Gov. Mike Beebe -- and regulatory agencies under his control -- for failing to stop the construction of another polluting coal-fired generating plant in Arkansas. Message: Polluters are welcome in Arkansas.

2) Add to our generally lonely voice about the abuse of tax increment financing to the detriment of schools. The Leader suggests a test case is ripe with NLR Mayor Pat Hays' latest attempt to grab school tax millage.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
