CEO Obama

Posted By on Sun, Mar 29, 2009 at 5:36 PM

I was about to put up just an open line, but I see the Obama administration has apparently forced the resignation of the head of General Motors in return for more government help.

All topics welcome.

A MEDIA NOTE PS: I'd confirmed yesterday the sad news first reported by Blog readers that editorial writer and columnist George Arnold had been laid off at the Northwest Arkansas edition of the Democrat-Gazette. I always appreciated George's moderate tone, common sense and story telling. Rest of the story: Mike Masterson is being put in charge of the opinion page. White River monsters, here we come. (For the second time today, Masterson gummed up the origins of the name of the lecture series in which he gave a speech recently at Lyon College. It's not the Eugene Patterson lecture as he wrote today. It's the Hugh B. Patterson lecture. It's named, not for the former publisher of the Arkansas Gazette, as Masterson wrote previously, but for the father of the former Gazette publisher, who had no connection with the newspaper.)

    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.
