The line is open

Posted By on Mon, Aug 23, 2010 at 5:07 PM

Take it away. But some random notes:

* In answer to questions from several readers: Though I'll believe just about anything about The Huckster and money, this thing just sounded dubious to me. Update:
But what about conservative bloggers on the take? Hmmm.

* Arkansas Business reports that Dan Savage's explicit sex advice column lasted one week in the Fayetteville Free Weekly. That paper is trying to reshape itself as more alternative, but there are limits to alternativity in the Hussman-Stephens Northwest Arkansas newspaper monopoly, of which the Free Weekly is a part. No need to hunt up the cached version of the removed column to read it. Savage's syndicated work is always available on his home website, including the most recent column, opening with anal sex and moving right along to other topics.

* Episcopal school in Texas denies admission to child of lesbian couple. Said the head of school:

We are a church affiliated with the Anglican Church in North America, and it is their policy that we don't provide services to individuals or families that do not behave properly.

    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.
