Brisk breezes and not much to report, except:

* ABOUT LAST NIGHT: An auto complete function (I think) explained a strange headline on last night's open line, which I've now corrected to remove the mystifying words that prompted several comments from readers. Sorry.

* LEGISLATIVE PLATE IN ACCIDENT REPORT: I mentioned hearing Friday of a reported hit-and-run involving a car with a legislative tag. Jason Tolbert picked up the report, which notes a tag number that correlates with one issued to new Rep. Mike Holcomb of Pine Bluff. The complainant's husband, who reported the accident to me, says the police report has the location wrong, it was actually at University and Markham. He had told me earlier:

It wasn’t bad. Minor damage. No one hurt but Nicole said this lady was in a big hurry and honking. It was the two-lane turn there at the intersection and they were going south turning onto Markham. The lady hit the median and then hit Nicole apparently. Her sister was in the car with her and they could see it coming. ... Nicole wonders if the lady even knew she hit her. Like I said, it wasn’t huge but she was incredulous that Corvette Lady kept going.

  • 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.
