Thursday night line

Your comments welcome. Closing notes:

* LOTTERY: A Senate committee has approved Sen. Sue Madison's bill to prohibit lottery ticket sales by vending machines. Unlikely marriage on this between Madison and Jerry Cox. It will inevitably limit potential sales. This will inevitably reduce proceeds for scholarships. Can't have one without the other, love or hate the lottery.

* GOOD GOVERNMENT: Matt Campbell of Blue Hog Report, who has done great work illuminating the bogus pay supplements drawn by most members of the legislature, today lists the five legislators who DO NOT TAKE the money. They are: Sen. David Johnson, Rep. Duncan Baird, Rep. Nate Steel, Rep. Leslee Milam Post and, after the controversy developed, Rep. John Edwards directed that his payments cease.

* DIRTY MOVIES: Channel 7 reports that a Pulaski County porn movie emporium doesn't intend to let tickets from the sheriff's office stop its operation. Live at 5. Though probably not the good stuff. Fox 16 had extensive report last 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.
