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

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
