Clip and save

The editorialist in the Arkansas Leader predicts Sen. John Boozman and U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin (if he's still around) will be front and center for dedications of the rebuilt Little Rock National Airport and the improved Interstate 430-630 interchange when ceremonies are held. All in attendance will be too polite to recall their fervent opposition to the stimulus legislation and earmarks that paid for them. The paper's editorial section also has a word or two about the airport's management.

PS — John Brummett mused further today on John Boozman and his and other Republicans' on-and-off-again feelings about earmarks.
