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

  • 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.
