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.
