Tuesday talk

Posted By on Tue, Jul 5, 2011 at 4:49 PM

The line is open. Close-out:

* FIREWORKS: The Little Rock police took 818 calls about fireworks being set off illegally in the city on July 4. That's more than some years, less than others.

* TOMMY SMITH: The Buzz's radio talker had an Aug. 31 trial date set today for drunk driving and related charges. A felony charge of possession of a prescription drug was reduced to a misdemeanor.

* PULASKI ACADEMY SCHOLARSHIPS: A Colorado foundation has chosen Pulaski Academy to receive $100,000 a year for the next four years to provide scholarships to gifted students who qualify on the basis of merit and need.

* WHOLESALE CHEATING: The better question is who DIDN'T cheat on standardized test scores in Atlanta schools.

This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

  • 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.
