* LOCAL BOY MAKES GOOD: Mike Haridopolos, described as a Florida teacher with a master's from the University of Arkansas and also a Republican with a yen to run for U.S. Senate, cooked up a deal to make $152,000 from a book on Florida politics that had a press run of exactly one (1) book.

* JON FITCH FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS: Visitation for the former senator will be at Brashear’s Funeral Home in Huntsville from 5:00-7:00 pm on Wed. March 2nd and Services will be held Thursday, March 3rd, in the Giffels Auditorium, in Old Main on the University of Arkansas campus at 1:00 pm. Interment will occur immediately following the service at Vaughan Cemetery, in Hindsville.

* REPUBLICAN JOB (DESTRUCTION) PLAN: Analysis says Republican budget plan could cost 700,000 jobs by 2012. Send thanks to the Arkansas congressional delegation, including nominal Democrat Mike Ross whose rhetoric has contributed to the madness that this is good for America.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
