Got a long shopping list but no enthusiasm for plunging into the maddening crowds?

Check out this week's Times and Kat Robinson's cover story. It's a detailed list of good Arkansas food, perfect for giving.

Also in this week's paper:

* Speaking of shopping, you CAN'T buy a North Little Rock merchant's boozy chocolate truffles because, well, it's a government thing. Gerard Matthews reports.

* I ruminate on Sen. Blanche Lincoln's political predicament and wonder whether a potential challenge from Lt. Gov. Bill Halter could shape her deliberations.

* Ernie Dumas assesses the toll of the huge outlays of TV advertising on Lincoln's changing position on health care.

* Lindsey Millar checks in with 607, a Little Rock rapper, and his brother Bobby who unveil a new act Saturday at The Village.

* Restaurant review is Santo Coyote, new in NLR.

* Bob Lancaster says thanks for 2009.

  • 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.
