Wednesday night line is open

Your turn. Final thoughts:

* 4TH DISTRICT GUIDANCE: D.C. Morrison, who finished third in the Democratic primary for 4th District Congress, says he endorses ticket leader Gene Jeffress in the runoff against Q. Byrum Hurst. That's the best indicator I know that voters should choose Hurst in the runoff. Morrison backed Beth Anne Rankin, the Republican loser this year, in 2010, and cost Democrats a shot at the U.S. Senate by mucking up the primary between challenger Bill Halter and U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln.

* HP SLASHING JOBS: Hewlett-Packard is slashing 27,000 jobs, 8 percent of its workforce. No word yet if that might affect the HP customer support facility in Conway that once was said to employ 1,200. It got $43 million in government incentives to locate there.

* GOOD OL' HILLCREST: The free state of Hillcrest again provided a warm liberal echo chamber against the increasingly cold world in much of the rest of Arkansas. A 91 percent vote for Obama at PH Presbyterian, 937-94 from two precincts that vote there. But we were outdone percentagewise by several, including Greater Archview Baptist, which went for Obama 353-6, or a 98 percent vote. Secede now, Hillcrest! I don't think the Koch Bros. would miss us. If you live in Pulaski County, go to this handy link and click your precinct for results.

    The Satanic Temple is bringing its 8.5-foot Baphomet statue to the Capitol from 1 to 3 p.m. today to rally for religious pluralism and stand as an objection to the state's endorsement of religion through placement of the 10 Commandments monument backed by Sen. Jason Rapert. Rapert is perturbed.
  • Satan vs. the supremacists

    So it goes. The Satanic Temple unveils its statue for a rally in support of the First Amendment protection against state establishment of religion. Meanwhile, a tiny group of white supremacists appeared in opposition, lending comfort to Bro. Jason Rapert's Biblical slab on the back side of the Capitol.
