In these Times

Posted By on Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 3:56 PM

The new weekly Times is on the web.

Leslie Peacock updates the state's move toward a trauma system.

David Koon reports, as I promised earlier, about drastic cuts in a state program to provide expensive drugs to people with HIV/AIDS.

Ernie Dumas covers a moving speaker in LR this week in the name of peace in Jerusalem (and Mike Huckabee's counter-productive appearance in the region).

Lindsey Millar and Co. have the rundown on the biggest five-day run of concerts Central Arkansas has ever seen. Start here.

Bob Lancaster is back from vacation. You want lists? Bob has lists.

There's lots more, including my column that explains how -- if the legislature gets its $2.8 million tunnel (and nobody believes, no matter how hard the governor tries to stop them, that this self-important gang of boodlers will be denied in the end) -- that the total cost of the project (a pretext to provide offices for the House) will cost $38 million or more.

  • In the margins

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
