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.

  • 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.
