In case you were wondering ....

... I've been at AETN at Conway to participate in a local panel that will be shown after one of the episodes of the American Experience bio, "Clinton," to be shown at 8 p.m. Monday and 7 p.m. Tuesday on the network. Hal Bass, the OBU political science professor; Times columnist Ernie Dumas; UA historian Randall Woods, and Little Rock banker French Hill, who worked in the George H.W. Bush White House also participated. Hill provided some good inside-the-Bush-White-House perspective on the 1992 race.

I forgot to mention the one observation I wanted to make: The production's uncommon attention to Hillary Clinton, given that it is a presidential biography. The promo photograph above bears that out.

Now to catch up.

UPDATE: Forgot to mention: I wrote a preview of the docs for our Televisionist section.

    Silence so far from Republican politicians such as Leslie Rutledge on achievement of their long-stated dream, death to the Affordable Care Act. Could that be because most people now understand what a good thing President Obama did with its passage? Update: Rutledge applauds and offers empty promise of coverage.
