Never mind Blanche ...

.... What about Beebe?

Roby Brock explores the other great statewide race on the ballot in 2010 -- Gov. Mike Beebe's expected coronation to a second term. The Republicans must field a candidate to continue automatic ballot qualification, even if it means throwing Party Chair Doyle Webb into the fray (would he expect a salary?)

Not to worry: Webb seems to think there are several up-and-coming GOP gunslingers looking to build a political name who'll be willing to make the race. Might even produce a contested primary. Or so goes the speculative talk almost a year before filing deadline.

    Well, the trade war has begun and the early returns for farmers are not good — sharp reductions in the prices for soybeans and corn. You may have heard that Arkansas, which overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump, has some agricultural interests, particularly in soybeans.

  • 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.
