Secretary of State Mark Martin announced the usual State Capitol Christmas season events yesterday (lighting ceremony is Dec. 3). I noticed, too, that the creche was under construction yesterday on the south side of the Capitol.

Which led me naturally to the website of the Arkansas Freethinkers.

They'll be setting up their Winter Solstice display at 2 p.m. Nov. 29, next to the Nativity Scene.

  • 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.
