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.

  • 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.
