The line is open

Posted By on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 5:04 PM

The line is open. Finishing up:

* LEGAL SYSTEM DOWN THE TOILET: The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that the constitutional rights of a Faulkner County jail inmate were not violated by the jail policy of giving inmates one roll of toilet paper per week.

* FORGET ABOUT SECRETARY LINCOLN: News reports say Tom Vilsack will remain as President Obama's Agriculture secretary. Former U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, now a lobbyist in Washington, had been among those mentioned as potential successors.

* DEATH REPORTED WHEN VEHICLE DRIVES INTO POND: A woman died and her child was hospitalized after her car drove into a pond near the Capitol Hill Apartments on Cooper Orbit Road in western Little Rock about 8:30 a.m. today. Channel 11 has a report. A neighbor reported ice on the roads in the vicinity and the suspicion that the car slid into the lake, where it became submerged. From Sgt. Cassandra Davis:

911 received a call to a car that ran off the road at Cooper Orbit and Rushmore. The car contained one female driver and her male son. Both the driver and her son were rescued from the submerged vehicle. Mother was taken to Baptist Hospital and child was taken to Children’s Cospital. The mother was pronounced deceased at 11:45. The child is listed in critical condition at Children’s Hospital. Since the accident is a fatality reconstruction officers will be working the accident. The report should be available sometime later this afternoon
.

* LANCE ARMSTRONG: The cyclist's 'splainin' has begun. A new New York Times story on how he profited from his nonprofit foundation further smears him. Return to athletics? How about the Pete Rose's reality show instead?
