Tuesday topics are up to you

The line is open. Final item:

* RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS: I've been lightly razzing 4th District Republican congressional candidate Tom Cotton for his lack of Arkansas residency in recent years, though he's now ensconced in a family home in downtown Dardanelle. So how come, someone asks, I haven't wondered where another Repub candidate, Beth Anne Rankin, calls home. Still living in her parents' house in Magnolia? I've asked, but haven't gotten a response. No problem with back-to-the-nesters, it's just that in this case home is government-subsidized housing, since her dad is head of Southern Arkansas University. Anybody know?

UPDATE: Rankin e-mails me that she's living on the Rankin family farm in Magnolia.

  • 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.
