The Huckster chronicles

Posted By on Wed, Mar 10, 2010 at 9:25 AM

A writer for The New Yorker has been in town this week as part of ongoing research for a major profile on Mike Huckabee, media star and potential future presidential candidate. Look for it in April. Lucky writer was in the crowd for the Huckabee-backed Pat Boone singalong on "Exodus" during his recent trip to Israel.

I told her we'd had a disagreement or two (or 12), but that he stood tall, and I thought sincerely, on a couple of major policy issues -- expanded government spending on education and expansion of government health insurance for children.

  • 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.
