Masterpiece open line

ART! I'm checking out the Kentwood House exhibition at the Arkansas Art Center tonight. Don't miss Leslie's review of the show, a rare chance to see a large collection of European masterpieces here in Little Rock. I confess that I actually find Rembrandt boring but I'm psyched nonetheless.

BEEBELIEBER!

DIALECT MAPS! Based on the number of people that have sent me this, you have probably already seen the amazing maps from Joshua Katz, which show survey results on pronunciation, slang and more across the U.S.A. But they're amazing, so let's talk about them. I don't think any of the listed options for "syrup" capture the way that our fearless editor, Lindsey Millar, says it — basically a one-syllable belch.

HOGS BY THE WATER: From a press release from a coalition of environmental groups:

A coalition of conservation and citizen groups sent a letter of demand today requesting that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) and the Small Business Administration (SBA) take action to ensure that the authorization of loan guarantee assistance to C&H Hog Farms in Mount Judea, Arkansas complies with the law. C&H is an industrial hog factory — under contract with Cargill, an international producer and marketer of agricultural products — that will have 6,500 swine when fully operational and is located on the banks of the Big Creek tributary that flows directly into the Buffalo National River. The groups assert that the loan guarantee to the hog facility hinges on a flawed environmental review process that violates the law and does not follow USDA’s own regulations.
