  • ATTRACTS CLIMBER: Hot Springs tower.
Call out the Republican congressional shock troops. Another worthy citizen has been denied admission to a national park attraction closed because of the GOP budget hijacking. This one even was arrested for being unwilling to take a locked fence as an answer.

Channel 4 reports that a 29-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday after scaling a 10-foot fence around the observation tower at Hot Springs National Park. She triggered an  alarm and officers who found her hiding in a stairwell arrested her for trespassing. She said she was traveling cross-country. When she saw the site was closed, she tied up her dog and scaled the fence. Why? Story doesn't say. Because it was there?

    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.
