The worn-out open line

Posted By on Thu, Nov 14, 2013 at 6:06 PM

Whew. Day is about done. Lots of news today. Keyboard started rattling about 5 a.m. It's a long scroll on the Arkanas Blog today, but check out everything below from the heated state treasurer's race, to Obamacare developments, to the momentous desegregation developments and a peek behind the chancellor's curtain at the University of Arkansas. I'm leaving it with you:

* IF YOU SEE THIS BEFORE 7 P.M.: Join me at Philander Smith College's M.L. Harris Auditorium to hear from Bryant Huddleston, the Los Angeles TV producer denied a speaking role last year at the high school in his hometown of Imboden because he is gay. Philander prides itself on thought-provoking speakers in its Bless the Mic lecture series, of which this appearance is a part. Huddleston is donating some of his honorarium to a local organization that works to help LGBT people, particularly teens. Not all families and places in Arkansas are welcoming, you shouldn't be surprised to know. Ask Huddleston tonight.

* NEWS UPDATE: The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has a report on another fatal shooting by a Little Rock police officer. It apparently involves a shooting by an officer who entered a house on a "welfare check" and encountered a man with a rifle. We don't yet know if the police shot a man with a rifle in his own house. It's not yet known of the man fired.
