The line is open

The readers take over.

NEWS NOTE: Conviction in a Cabot court today of two women accused of participating in a prostitution operation run out of a Cabot subdivision. An alleged john was acquitted. We'd featured this house some time back.

Coming soon to TV near you: Jim Keet, bankrupt on meaningful ideas, goes straight after Gov. Mike Beebe for being nice to Barack Obama in 2008. Can you nationalize everything from U.S. Senate to a nonpartisan municipal election in a white flight suburb? The Republican Party of Arkansas — led by the likes of a vote cager, mortgage deadbeats, a tax cheat and a shyster who preys on widows — are betting on their knowledge of Arkansas voters that it will work.

On the jump, Beebe campaign zings back:

Said the Beebe campaign

"Jim Keet is distorting Governor Beebe’s positions. That’s NOT surprising for someone who only registered to vote in Arkansas nine months ago, doesn’t pay the taxes he owes, and blamed his wife when the truth came out. It IS surprising Jim Keet would distort a video clip from the 2008 election campaign since it draws attention to the fact that Keet was living and voting in Florida at the time. As Jim Keet knows, Mike Beebe has criticized this President — and presidents before him — when their policies hurt Arkansas. The Governor has been particularly skeptical of the health care program and the financial cost it would place on Arkansas taxpayers and businesses. In Keet’s defense, they might not have carried those comments in Florida papers, or maybe he can blame Mrs. Keet for not filling him in."
