John Brummett offers a few more discouraging words for legislators who cling to prerogatives over set asides for local spending projects rather than deferring to general state needs in time of financial crisis. Dog bites man.

UPDATE: And speaking of using of "seed corn," there's this report from the meeting of the country's governor's that says, while some signs of a national recovery are evident, the fiscal year beginning July 1 could be the worst yet for the states. I remain pessimistic about whether Arkansas can make it through the year without another painful adjustment. I hate, too, that much of the pain will come out of medical services for the poor, state spending that it is tripled by federal contributions.

  • 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.
