Election lowlights

Oops. When Blanche Lincoln went to vote today, she was told she'd already voted. It seems she'd requested an absentee ballot (to be safe in case emergency Senate action required her to be in Washington) but didn't submit it. Voter records indicated she'd voted. It all worked out. She cast a provisional ballot.

And, yes, we can confirm from an eyewitness that opponent Bill Halter's all-night final campaign marathon included a 1:30 a.m. stop at Midtown Billiards. It becomes hard in the wee hours to find functioning potential voters, so why not Midtown. (No wisecracks, now, about Midtown's patrons.)

  • The yawning teacher pay gap between Arkansas school districts

    Before Arkansas congratulates itself for outpacing Oklahoma on teacher pay, we should take a look at the huge disparity in salaries within the state. New teachers in Bentonville may make almost $46,000 a year, but new teachers in many other districts will start the 2018-19 school year earning $31,800 — less than the starting salary in Tulsa.
