Their turn

Posted By on Fri, Sep 4, 2009 at 10:38 AM

Going out on a limb here to predict there will be no one shouting about czars at the Rally for Healthcare Reform set for Saturday at Riverfront Park behind the Peabody Hotel. An event hoped to send a message to Arkansas's congressional delegation to man up, it's sponsored by the Service Employees International Union; the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, ACORN and No More Band-Aids. 1 p.m. is the kick off time and when Annie Abrams and others aren't speaking, the Damn Bullets will play, Kyria Willis and Amanda Hood will sing, and Osyrus Bolden will do "spoken word art."
