Friday farewell

Posted By on Fri, Oct 16, 2009 at 5:17 PM

It's over to you. The line is open.

But before I go, I wanted to add, because I never had another opportunity, a word about quiet Joel Anderson, UALR's steady chancellor. He deserves a pat on the back for endorsing more access to higher education for immigrants. In remarks yesterday, he supported in-state tuition for Arkansas high school graduates who've spent the requisite number of years in state because it's simply "the right thing to do." Amen.

Words have consequences. His words prompted me to make a donation to the school's big fund drive. Which also reminds me: My stint with Rosi Smith on KUAR is, as usual, the closing day of the fund drive, Friday, Oct. 23, 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. The usual Blog pledge match will be in force.
