There's Arkansas — and then there's the Delta

Posted By on Thu, Feb 23, 2012 at 9:36 AM

I'm not going to try to boil these down other than to say that politics in Helena-West Helena and Crittenden County do beat all. It's enough to make people pack up and leave those bedraggled territories. Wait. Thousands have.

* HELENA-WEST HELENA: Here, the account is about pay raises for pals with dubious backgrounds in city government.

* CRITTENDEN COUNTY: Here, the story is about (free registration reqd.) Democratic Committee drama and fears of a potential meltdown of election operation as a result.

Makes Bryant look positively placid.

  • 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.
