Wednesday night line

Whew. Busy day. Now it's your turn. Finishing up:

* MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: This story mentions hackers, but burglars would be the more proper term if the account is true. The story goes that somebody has gotten hold of Mitt Romney's income tax returns and is extorting the Romney camp for money to prevent their release. This could be true, false or a diabolical hoax. But it's out there. More here.

OOPS. I picked up an item from Twitter or somewhere about death of Bob Denver, the actor who played Gilligan. Don't know where that came from. It was old news, which popped back up through the magic of the innertubes. How quickly we forget just about everything these days.

* LAST PERSON OUT OF PINE BLUFF ... A reliable source reports that Pine Bluff Mayor Carl Redus sued today to stop the November mayoral election. He contends state law requires the election be in non-presidential years now that the city's population has dropped below 50,000.

  • 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.
