SHADES OF GREYFRIARS BOBBY: The Hospital Dog in The Observer.
  • SHADES OF GREYFRIARS BOBBY: The Hospital Dog in The Observer.
You noticed didn't you, that the new Arkansas Times is now on the web. Lots to recommend there, including:

There's Gene Lyons, writing about the Asian-ancestry NBA phenom Jeremy Lin.

There's Lindsey Millar's Media column on the Democrat-Gazette's bonkers vitriol about a center for veterans on Main Street and his more rational assessment of the good and bad about Main Street these days.

There's Cheree Franco's cover story on Jill "Republican" Dabbs, whose first year as mayor of Bryant has, if nothing else, jump-started all kinds of new Saline County news outlets on the web.

And there's The Observer, to which I want to call special attention. A friend and Arkansas Blog reader sent a note about her hospital vigil with her failing father in a hospital upstream from Little Rock. I think you'll like her story about The Hospital Dog.

  • 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.
