All My (Conway) Children: a blog better than the soaps

Posted By on Fri, Jan 20, 2012 at 9:10 AM

If you don't read the Log Cabin Democrat, you are missing a reality show that beats anything currently on TV. A sampler:

* JAGER BOMBS: There's a monumental thread that ensued over a report that a woman hadn't paid a $375 bar tab — some 50 "Jager bombs" and "Vegas bombs" — scuffled with cops, got arrested. All this in a dry county. Comments were hot and heavy, then hot and heavier still when the suspect weighed in, at length, with too much info on her drinking and pharmaceutical use.

* COUGARTOWN: 41-year-old woman charged with sexual assault related to daughter's 15-year-old boyfriend. She'd met the youth in church.

* WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN?: Man charged with urinating on girlfriend's car.

* THE FUTURE OF NEWSPAPERS: Seems unbelievable, with the wealth of information being provided (and the above is just the tip of an iceberg of Conway criminality) that the thread on the future of the newspaper is so pessimistic.

  • 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.
