The Arkansas Times' bill

Posted By on Tue, Feb 3, 2009 at 4:34 PM

Well, it's not, really. But we are partial to catfish around here. And today's legislative silliness (or one of several) is Rep. Greg Reep's bill to make the blue catfish the official state fish of Arkansas. Possession of concealed weapons is allowed while pursuing the blue cat. Prayer also. Perhaps both should be made mandatory.

  • 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.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
