Helena blues festival

The culture of incestuous politics and feuding that has been a perpetual blight on Helena-West Helena continues apace. I won't try to explain the ins and outs of the budget fight between the City Council and Mayor Arnell Willis except to say city government may or may not continue to operate. Andrew Bagley blogs at the link about last night's doings.

There is something to like in a city where the players include folks with nicknames like "Carwash" and "King Deuce."
