Sunday thoughts here

Posted By on Sun, Jan 2, 2011 at 4:43 PM

The line is open.

Today's hot topics:

* A McAlmont woman was shot to death when she apparently walked in on a robbery Sunday afternoon of relatives in a home near North Little Rock. The sheriff's office is searching for two men, who were known to the victim's family.

* Can we get a quorum call on the wildly inappropriate raunchy videos done by the commander of the aircrafter carrier Enterprise? OK in a frat house, but for the commander of a giant, nuclear-powered warship with more than 5,000 ship's crew and plane crews aboard to broadcast this on a regular basis? Despite the angle of some newscasts so far, this isn't about preference for one kind of sexual orientation or another. He apparently matched homosexual slurs with plenty of sexist sophomoric stuff. This is about command performance and whether or not it was countenanced by higher brass.

  • 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.
