Over the hump

And the line is open. Closing tidbits:

* Several satellite rallies are planned around Arkansas to show solidarity with Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity in Washington. In Little Rock, comes word of a Rally to Restore Sanity — and Hope, at noon Saturday, Oct. 30, in MacArthur Park. Another is scheduled at noon the same day on the Capitol steps.

* Been wondering about Bishop Steven M. Arnold, former pastor of St. Mark Baptist Church, who resigned amid some personal difficulties recently from the West 12th Street megachurch? After several meetings with sympathetic churchgoers, it appears Arnold has decided to go out on his own and start a new church — Grace Temple.

According to the Facebook page, its first service will be at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 7, at the Perfecting New Life facility at Mississippi and Illinois.

UPDATE: 9th Circuit panel has temporarily stayed order ending gay discrimination in military. Don't tell just yet.
