Look who's talking

Posted By on Wed, Dec 2, 2009 at 9:06 AM

An e-mail from a regular reader and correspondent:

On Monday at about 4:30, I saw Kim Hendren (or someone driving a car with Arkansas Senate #14 license plate and Kim Hendren signs on it) talking on his cell phone as he drove down I-40 at the Pulaski/Faulkner County line.  Seems a bit hypocritical, no?

Well, yes, if it was Hendren, crusader against cell phone use in cars. Senator, was that you? Or is this a case of mistaken identity?

UPDATE: Sen. Hendren responds with his customary plain talk.

I am guilty!

As you know, I have not been successful yet with this proposed legislation for adults (as well as some other things I have sponsored).  I do have several hands free devices including a new Garman GPS with Bluetooth and do use them - but not all the time.  None of these work as well as I would like - so I fail from time to time - but I will try to do better.  I acknowledge that your reader is correct in calling me into account on this.

Thanks,

Kim
