Thursday thoughts here

Posted By on Thu, Jan 19, 2012 at 4:40 PM

The night line is open. Closing out:

* CYBER BULLYING: 40/29 reports on arrest of a 12-year-old in a case related to derogatory Twitter posts directed at Bentonville High School students.

* ARKANSAN ON STAMP: John Johnson, the Arkansas native who published Ebony and Jet, will be honored on a U.S. postage stamp to be issued Jan. 31.

* 'PRINT IS NOT DEAD': So says the exec hired by the Stephens financial empire of Little Rock to oversee its $143 million investment in a group of newspapers.

* HOW REPUBLICANS KILLED A PIPELINE: Before you buy the line U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin is selling about the Obama administration and the Keystone pipeline, read this report from Talking Points Memo. Repubs chose politics over the pipeline — that simple.

* OCCUPY LITTLE ROCK RADIO: OLR soldiers on and next Tuesday, at noon, it adds a weekly radio show on KABF to its consciousness raising. That's at 88.3 FM.

* MORE LODGING HONORS: I mentioned this morning that the Capital Hotel had been named a top 25 U.S. hotel in a Trip Advisor survey. Two Hot Springs B&Bs have made the top 25 list in their category — Tinkerbelle's Wildwood Bed and Breakfast and Lookout Point Lakeside Inn B&B.

GREAT PICK: Was your legislator one who endorsed Perry?
  • GREAT PICK: Was your legislator one who endorsed Perry?
* THE TERRIBLE 20: For their remarkable prescience and judgment, it seems only right to memorialize the 20 Arkansas legislators who jumped early on the Rick Perry bandwagon only to see him flee the race today a virtual national laughingstock heading to, at best, a third place finish in his home state of Texas. They are modern-day soulmates to the single delegate John Connally picked up — Ada Mills of Arkansas — in his ill-fated Republican run for president. Salute:

David J. Sanders, Charlie Collins, Duncan Baird, Lane Jean, Bruce Westerman, Andrea Lea, Jane English, Ann Clemmer, Justin Harris, Nate Bell, Mark Biviano, Allen Kerr, Prissy Hickerson, David Meeks, Jon Woods, Stephen Meeks, Josh Johnson, Gary Stubblefield, Kim Hammer, Bruce Cozart.

Not too soon to sign onto his 2016 race, which he claims to be contemplating.

  • Is the legislature 'routinely corrupt'? A few dozen examples say yes.

    Is the Arkansas legislature routinely corrupt? In the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette today, one  legislator wrote in the op-ed section that it is not while Michael Wickline reported a powerful argument in favor on page one. And I list a lot more.

    Here's the open line. For entertainment, if you have one minute, watch this political ad against  Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona.
