The line is open

Posted By on Tue, Nov 9, 2010 at 5:05 PM

I'm off to laud Ernie Dumas at a benefit for Arkansas Community Organizations. 5:30 at the Darragh Center of the library, if you've a mind to join in.

Otherwise, it's over to you.

UPDATE: At 7:30 power still interrupted in a patch of downtown thanks to a dump truck that hit a power pole at 4th and State about 5:30 p.m. City Hall meetings interrupted among others.

A nice crowd at Ernie Dumas tribute, which raised maybe $5,000 to continue the grassroots work that ACORN once did. (Ball-boy tip money for the Billionaires Club, I know, but a nice sum for a group that's always gotten by on grit and principle, not money.) Lots of "scary grannies" in the crowd. They're not scary, by the way, unless you're afraid of the truth, Timmy. I told several of them that I'd like to see a cage match between the Scary Grannies and the Graffiti's Doctors Wives. The docs' wives would have an edge on youth — and maybe plastic surgery — but not on backbone.
