Gov. Beebe throws a party

Posted By on Tue, Jan 4, 2011 at 1:12 PM

Still time to buy tickets to Gov. Mike Beebe's second inaugural festivities next week. (But wait. Isn't the Democratic Party supposed to be spending money it received from Beebe campaign surplus on the inaugural? Why not do it Huey P. Long style? "Who gave a party at the Peabody Hotel? And invited the whole state down there for free? ...")

Anyway, this link will take you to details of the entertainment. A Johnny Cash tribute band at the bbq-catfish fry Monday night; a big band from the Arkansas Symphony, Lawrence Hamilton and Party Planet, a Memphis band, will appear at the inaugural ball Tuesday night.

  • 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.
