Over to you

The line is open.

I  should add before closing what I know about where things stand on our effort with Channel 4 to arrange one more debate (they've had three) between Sen. Blanche Lincoln and Lt. Gov. Bill Halter, in a runoff for the Democratic nomination for Senate.

Halter, who closely trailed Lincoln in the first round of voting that produced a runoff after a third candidate took 13 percent of the vote, has said he would like to debate. The Lincoln campaign has said, so far, that it is unable to schedule an appearance June 1-8 because she'll be on her "Countdown to Victory Tour then," meeting with voters statewide.

We've asked the Lincoln campaign if any time in the interim might be possible, understanding that time is short and that the Memorial Day weekend lies ahead.

    A group of anonymous Harding University students on Friday published an "HU Queer Press 2.0" zine, covering issues of gay rights at the private, Churches of Christ-affiliated campus in Searcy. A similar publication, "The State of the Gay at Harding University," set off a firestorm of controversy at Harding seven years ago. Shortly after the publication was distributed, campus security officers began gathering the copies of the zine and throwing them in the trash.

    It has been 59 years since 21 teen-aged boys incarcerated at the so-called Negro Boys Industrial School were burned to death in their locked dormitory. The Times wrote about the event in 2008, after the brother and mother of one of the boys approached the Times looking for someone to remember the event, and headlined the story "Stirring the Ashes." But on Saturday, a monument to the boys was placed at Haven of Rest Cemetery, where 14 of the boys were buried.
