Thursday night line

Open for your comments. My final ones:

* FAYETTEVILLE ACCOUNTANT GETS NINE YEARS: Kimberly O'Dell, a former Fayetteville accountant, got a nine-year federal sentence for swindling clients out of more than $1.5 million.

* FOOD STAMP PRESIDENT: Nice little YouTube on the president who produced record increases in recipients, benefits and total expenditures on food stamps. No, it's not the Kenyan.

* BRITS BESTED BY 'WILD WEST' ARKANSAS: Furor in British press over a Fort Smith firm winning the contract to print tickets for the 2012 Olympics in London. This account refers to Fort Smith as a "Wild West" town. Imagine if they could meet DBI. Daily Mail, also using "Wild West" label, calls it a "kick in the gut" to England.

* WHAT IF THE TEA PARTY HELD A SEMINAR ON PICKUP LINES? They did, at CPAC convention. Talking Points Memo covered. One suggestion: Take that blind date to a gun club. PS — Better they talk about pickup lines than go to the anti-diversity session that featured white supremacists.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
