Watch the bouncing news

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2010 at 3:28 PM

I don't link them all, but I hope everyone has noticed our Arkansas news headline service on the right rail of the blog and home page. It constantly feeds news headlines and links to other major news organization in Arkansas. It provides a Twitter-like stream of dominant news of the day.

Like the news that Joint Budget thinks that elected officials, including legislators, should get no pay raises next year. How could they do otherwise, since Gov. Beebe has already said state workers will get no increases? What will be interesting to watch will be the certain appearance of special pleaders.

The legislature doesn't control county and city official pay. All bets are off, as usual, on the Pulaski Quorum Court.

  • 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.
