Top of the evening

Posted By on Tue, Jun 16, 2009 at 7:49 PM

Here's an open line.

Sorry for the delay. I heard a New Zealand historian at UALR's History Institute. Fascinating. Did you know there are no native mammals in NZ? Did you know it will be a majority "brown" country before long? That it saved the kiwi fruit industry -- poached by Italy and Chile -- by developing an organic golden variety? I didn't

From the mailbag: Sierra Club thanks PSC for letting it intervene in SWEPCO power plant case. Mighty nice of them to give a pretense of an open mind, at least. Attorney General Dustin McDaniel wouldn't allow even the appearance of fairness.

ALSO: Tom Cox, the newly minted teabagging Republican Senate candidate, was nominated for Worst Person in the World tonight on Olbermann.Sure, a guy who runs against illegal immigration but who's been using illegal immigrants in his boat plant is an easy target. I know. Cox checked their papers as carefully as possible. I'll buy that. Good thing he doesn't live in Oklahoma. Or, if the Twilight Zoners among Ark. Repubs had their way, Arkansas wouldn't be so hot.

FINALLY: Something's cooking on hyperlocal political/racial issue. More when I have it.
