Early bird catches the A's

Posted By on Thu, Jun 11, 2009 at 10:56 AM

Time magazine reports on research -- including a study at Hendrix College -- into whether night owls or morning people ("larks") score better grades. At Hendrix, the study found night-owls had lower grades than early birds. That was certainly my college experience -- late nights, mediocre grades. But as I've aged, I"ve lapped myself. I used to stay up until 5 a.m. Now that's when I get up.

  • Central High at 60: Seize the day mayor. Stand up for LR schools.

    The conversion of a national debate on race is an apt commentary for the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock school crisis and the city's effort to sell it as an occasion to laud progress.

  • 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.
