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.)

  • 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.
