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.

  • 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.
