Random thoughts

Posted By on Fri, Feb 6, 2009 at 2:10 PM

Bob Lancaster's latest about "tagging" the Pope on Facebook inspired Michael Tilley to point me to his own riff on this Facebook pastime. Tilley runs the City Wire, a Fort Smith news website, and here's his own compilation of 25 random things.

(One random thing about me, not the required 25. I opened a Facebook account, for a reason I can't now recall. My kids hooted at me. Chastened, I never accepted any friends, or whatever you call your posse on Facebook. I can't figure out how to un-Facebook myself.)

Back to Tilley, who opens with a random thought worth repeating:

1. Someone should pass a state law barring the next Arkansas governor from having the “bee” sound as the final syllable in his or her surname. We had 10 years of Huckabee and likely will have eight years of Beebe. Eighteen years of that consonant-vowel pairing is enough.

Also, the coldest beer in Fort Smith is at Logan's Roadhouse. And more.

  • 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.
