A letter to Ernie P.

Posted By on Fri, Jul 24, 2009 at 3:14 PM

Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families has written a letter to Ernie Passailaigue, the Arkansas lottery director.

It's worth a read. It congratulates Ernie on his pay, because, surely, it means the state will be paying others advancing the interests of children in a commensurate fashion -- teachers, conselors, etc. It suggests saving money by cutting the marketing budget, but it also suggests spending money on problem gambling. Tongue a bit in cheek here, in other words.

  • 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.
