UNIVERSITY AVENUE: A lake Sunday afternoon. The backed-up Rock Creek also flooded Murrys Dinner Playhouse.

Comments? Fire away. Noted:

* TIM GRIFFIN'S FRIENDS: People who've tried to take exception U.S. Tim Griffin's vote to end Medicare say their mild-mannered criticism have been made unwelcome on his Facebook page. Wonder how his town halls will be staged?

* MORE FACEBOOK FLAWS: Democrats are buzzing about Lt. Gov. Mark Darr's Facebook page, which included — until word got around — a link to this delightful page. Quote: DEAR LORD, THIS YEAR YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTOR, PATRICK SWAYZIE. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTRESS, FARAH FAWCETT. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE SINGER, MICHAEL JACKSON. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW, MY FAVORITE PRESIDENT IS BARACK OBAMA. AMEN Is the Lt. Gov. suggesting it's funny to pray for the death of the president? Blue Arkansas has screen shot.

* RE FACEBOOK: We don't ban people from the Arkansas Times Facebook page or my own page. But I don't post anyone to news feeds on my page because, 1) with more than 3,000 friends, it would be too cumbersome; 2) and I have a personal account only to have the necessary administrative access to post to the Arkansas Times Facebook page. The conversations there, when items are posted, are wide-ranging and open to all. I also periodically wipe the Ark. Times page free of ALL posts except the Times' just to keep it easier to follow.

* FLOODING: Your reports on this are welcome. The mail brings news of Rock Creek area flooding as well as problems at marinas along the fast-runninig Arkansas River. A floating marina, with boat, has broken free of its mooring and lodged against the Murray Dam (below), my witness reports.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    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.
