If it's Sunday...

... it must be Amsterdam. The Brussels flight left on time and arrived on time. Unfortunately, one bag never left Little Rock on account of our standby on a flight delayed from the day before and subsequent cancellation of the flight we were supposed to be on. We took an escalator down one flight of stairs and were in the train station. Minutes later, we were in the middle of Brussels. 30 minutes later, we were on a fast train to Amsterdam. We'll finish the trip in Brussels.

But, after a canal boat ride, we joined a long line at a 50-year-old stand to buy a cone of Dutch fries with curry ketchup and Belgian mayo. Expensive as Europe is, 2 Euros worth of fries and mayo will fill you up cheap.

Meanwhile, back in Arkansas, I see that John Brummett is doing some more year-end reviewing. Good year for most politicians, he says. Yes, including Gilbert Baker. But it's awfully charitable of Brum to not mention Baker's unflattering involvement in the UCA mess that he led off the column with. And, yes, Baker would be interested in a run for Second District Congress, though perhaps not against Rep. Vic Snyder.

  • 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.
