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.

  • Obamacare's ruin: Where are the boastful press releases from Arkansas Republicans?

    Silence so far from Republican politicians such as Leslie Rutledge on achievement of their long-stated dream, death to the Affordable Care Act. Could that be because most people now understand what a good thing President Obama did with its passage? Update: Rutledge applauds and offers empty promise of coverage.
