Ups and downs

Posted By on Sun, Dec 28, 2008 at 8:06 AM

Feel like you're drowning in year-end best-of and worst-of lists?  Well, here's one more to add to the mire.  In addition to yesterday's offering of the year's best and worst, today columnist/blogger John Brummett offers the year in ups and downs.  Among those that are up: Gov. Mike Beebe, Lt. Gov. Bill Halter and Senator Gilbert Baker.  On the downside: former UCA president Lu Hardin, who left the university amidst controversy and Sen. Blanche Lincoln who faces what is likely to be a tough re-election campaign in 2010.

  • 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.
