In these Times

Posted By on Thu, Apr 15, 2010 at 1:05 PM


Blogging's been light today as we work on other things, so I thought I'd take a second to point out some of the highlights in this week's issue.

On the cover: David Koon takes a look at some pretty sweet rides you've probably seen rolling down the streets of central Arkansas. Be sure to pick up the print edition to see all the great photos inside.

The Arkansas Reporter: Doug Smith takes a closer look at last week's circuit court decision in favor of the Pulaski Association of Classroom Teachers. David Koon finds out that Arkansas is one of 8 states in which prisoners might have access to your private information.

Great columns: from Ernie Dumas to Bob Lancaster. Blanche Lincoln pinch-hits for Max this week.  I ask around about the Examiner, which is basically a web-based sweatshop for writers looking to make a little extra cash. Key word: little.

A&E: Lindsey Millar sits down with the one and only Dwight David Honeycutt. Plus, find out what To-Do here.

  • Auditor Lea caught not telling the truth

    State Auditor Andrea Lea, who began her tenure in statewide office with a degree of competence unseen in some other Republican counterparts (think Treasurer Dennis Milligan particularly), is becoming more deeply mired in a political scandal.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    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.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
