Kindly slow today

Maybe an open line will spice things up

PS — I probably should mention that some legal thumbsucking has continued today on the question of whether Jim Keet meets the constitutional seven-year residency requirement for governor. He moved back to Arkansas in 2009 after some six years as a resident of Florida, where he owned a home and voted while leading a restaurant chain. He told me yesterday that he always saw himself as an Arkansan (though we missed his income tax payments during those years away) and always intended to return. Intent was a key element in the state Supreme Court decision that rejected a challenge to Bill Halter's candidacy because he'd been out of the state for a number of years before running for lieutenant governor. It's complicated.

You'll find the continuing discussion here
, in the comments. I've also asked Keet if he'd like to elaborate further, in light of the questions raised. (Sorry, at 8 p.m., I discovered I'd screwed up the original link on this.)

  • 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.
