STUFF OF DREAMS: The WR legacy.

  • STUFF OF DREAMS: The WR legacy.
Comments added to past Times articles often get lost in the shuffle and so I thought I'd call attention to remarks made last night on Doug Smith's article about Winthrop Rockefeller's legacy in Arkansas. It was posted by Deborah Sage Rockefeller, first wife of the former governor's son, the late Lt. Gov. Winthrop Paul Rockefeller.

She takes a mild exception to a statement in the article about what could have been, seeing a story that, through several generations, is "the stuff that dreams are made of."

  • 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.
