The Sunday night line is open.

I think we're still early for the sweetest spot of the summer produce season. But ....

I'm about to try out three different versions of Arkansas-grown tomatoes — pinks from Warren (not the red shippers); some heirloom tomatoes and some early arrivals from Cabot. Plus Arkansas squash. Plus a couple of quarts of blackberries put in a cobbler with some Searcy ice cream to go on top. (Can I get a second on the motion that Angel Food is the best of Yarnell's four types of vanilla? I don't want to hear about the home-made style, even if it is the biggest seller.) Plus a Petit Jean peppered ham. Plus, I wimped out and didn't make them myself, but we bought some pocketbook rolls from Diane's, which — I'm never allowed to forget — my wife believes are superior to mine.

Some of the tomatoes, squash and blackberries (and a vase full of sunflowers) are from the nice little farmers market that Pulaski Heights Baptist is sponsoring on Kavanaugh every Saturday morning. Check it out next week. It should only get better.

You can't get a dinner like this on the Internet.

  • Donald Trump declares war on Hillary Clinton's marriage

    Donald Trump gave a remarkable interview to the New York Times yesterday in which he declared open season on the marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton's past infidelity. Seems like a loser, but I've been wrong before.

  • More on how highways were used to wipe out "blight" of non-white neighborhoods

    Vox, a news website that concerns itself with energy and other issues, has a fine piece, including before and after images, on the history of the U.S. interstate system and why roads were built through the middle of cities (unless people of influence stopped them — see Manhattan, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.)

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
