Morning musings

Posted By on Thu, Feb 11, 2010 at 7:26 AM

1) My last words on last night's vibrant open line on chili dogs (inspired by Doug Smith's chili dog search in this week's Best Restaurants cover story): No beans in the chili. Yes, definitely, slaw.

2) Re the tepid D-G review (sub. reqd.) of Sims BBQ in this morning's paper. Some people LIKE the thin, mustardy, vinegary nonpareil Sims sauce. Including me. And anybody who's spent any time at Sims knows that to get the thicker sauce in the red squeeze bottles, you ask for the hot sauce. It IS hot.

3) More seriously: How in the world can Judge Brian Miller release North Little Rock School District from desegregation supervision? (sub. reqd.) Too many problems -- along with damning statistics on achievement, discipline, assignments -- to be explained away as the product of disgruntled employees.

  • 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.
