Arkansas priorities

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management is using its Twitter account to apprise subscribers of ways to watch Kris Allen on "American Idol."

I s*** you not.

UPDATE: A friendly spokesman for DEM says this was the product of an errant keystroke. (I can relate). She apparently meant to click an item on the TV news page that reported the governor's request for aid for rain-drenched areas. That item appeared next to the American Idol item on the TV station web page. Oops. Wrong item clicked. "I do have other more important things to do than American Idol," she said. Explanation accepted. The Idol post has been removed.

Here's the original post on the DEM page, which, in the Twitter parlance, "reTweeted" a TV station Twitter blurb:

RT @Region8News: American Idol Watch: Ways you can join in on the Region 8 News American Idol Watch. http://tinyurl.com/p8fm4e

Before the ordinance was punted, Vice Mayor Kathy Webb proposed a nine-member commission to study the issue and make recommendations to the board.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
