Duct tape architecture of the Ark. Delta

--Monticello Live

Arkansas Blog state editor Donald Tuohey has been busy clipping Arkansas blogs for potential stories. And he came up with both a local blog worthy of checking -- Monticello Live -- and its recent report on a downtown building repair that followed the recent collapse of the facade of another building nearby. Joe Burgess wrote there:

After the collapse of the building on the east side of  the square’s south side, a temporary repair was noticed that had recently been applied to the building on the west end of that same row of building.

The tape appears to be Duct Tape, a product that is usually made of aluminum, and used in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry, and not the standard grade of “duck tape.”

But it is still a shining example of a potential problem.

Duct tape and WD-40. Need anything else for survival in Arkansas? Nah, except, of course, a 97-cent Miller quart from my neighborhood convenience store.

It's that time of a Friday, isn't it?

I should add: THE LINE IS OPEN

  • 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.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
