The line is open

Posted By on Sun, May 15, 2011 at 4:25 PM

Your Sunday thoughts are welcome here.

Sounds quiet in Arkansas, from all I can tell from a quick look around.

It's a glorious day, cool and sunny in San Francisco, where the streets are thronged with thousands of people in costumed running getups after the 100th running of the Bay to Breakers 12K footrace, a combination athletic event and happening. It's a sight.

After all these years, I'm finally going to see Beach Blanket Babylon tonight, then walk over to Tony's Napoletana for pizza.

I need to work on a column tomorrow. But I thought Norma hit so many good points in her summary on our former governor's much-hyped abandonment of presidential hopes that I just might ask her to guest for me this week. What is there to add, really?

  • 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.
