Who's that knocking?

Posted By on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 6:19 AM


A North Little Rock reader, seconding a Little Rock proposal for a "No Knock" registry for door-to-door sales, sends a note (edited slightly) and photo above.

We have the same problem here in NLR/Lakewood. I found out there were over 20 permits given out this month. After numerous all day into the late evening knocks, this was my last resort. (photo)

Tacky? Maybe, but it does the job. I even had one  sales rep ask if I wanted the outdoor neighborhood cat that was on my driveway "whacked."  If I would sign up, he would "take care of it" for me. He also had a 'buddy' that would do the electrical grounding for me (not a utility employee of course) Nice...another lovely day in Lakewood.

I caught myself wondering - after terrorizing people and small animals all day, what in the world do those boys do for fun on a Friday night?

    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.
