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?

* 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.

    A petition drive has begun to encourage a demand that Sen. Jason Rapert pay for the legal fees in defending his Ten Commandments monument proposed for the state Capitol grounds. It's more work by the Satanic Temple, which has fought church-state entanglement around the country.
