This week in Arkantube

Posted By on Sat, Sep 18, 2010 at 7:40 AM

David Koon has begun a weekly project of rounding up video of interest to Arkansas on YouTube. Above, former Little Rock Mayor George Wimberly is interviewed for a UAMS project at his drugstore in Stifft Station, a popular gathering spot still for politicos to tell tall tales. He talks about growing up in the 1920s and if I hear George right, he says the economic situation today is worse than the Depression, when he joined the CCC.

Elsewhere on Arkantube:

An old-timey doctor dishes on the sorry shape of Little Rock clinics and hospitals in the 1940s and 50s:

Part 2:

Part 3 (Lobotomies on tour!):

A scary looking guy blazes away with two 9mm pistols while a cockney narrator looks on. Good shootin', gov'na!.

On camera bloopers (many involving animal attack, for some reason) by a blonde hottie from KAIT in Jonesboro

  • 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.
