In this week's Times

Posted By on Thu, Sep 3, 2009 at 1:35 PM

We at the Times sometimes forget that not all of our blog readers have a chance to pick up the print edition.  Or maybe they simply choose not to, but it's usually a good read and this week is no exception.

This week we have a special column by Mara Leveritt that asks the question: Is the Arkansas Supreme Court in violation of the state's Freedom of Information Act?  The answer appears to be yes.  Leveritt sought recently filed documents regarding the West Memphis Three case and was denied because the "records are sealed," as one court clerk said.  The same clerk could not cite any legal authority to do so.

There's also a very thoughtful Observer column about hiking Pinnacle, drag racing down Kavanaugh and brotherly love.  A good cover story on Mike Ross's efforts to, er, reform the health care system.  Solid columns from Max, Ernest Dumas and John Brummett.  And the always up-to-date To-Do List from Lindsey Millar and Paul Peterson.  Enjoy.

UPDATE: Add Bro. Lancaster to this list! He held his own town hall and he feels your pain.

  • 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.
