Over to the public. Final note:

* MAJOR FIRE AT WELSPUN: TV stations are reporting tonight that a fire at Welspun, the pipemaker at the Little Rock Port, suffered a major fire this morning that caused an estimated $1.5 million in damage to plant equipment. It's could interrupt production at the 400-worker facility. Fox 16 reports that the fire began in an electrical control room.

* LR HOMICIDE: Channel 4 reports a fatal shooting in the 6800 block of Col. Glenn about 1 a.m. today when three men resisted two robbers and shots were fired.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
