Benton police are looking for a man who  went into the Walmart store there just after 5 a.m. this morning, brandished a pickaxe and then smashed jewelry cases before making off with an unspecified amount of loot. 

According to KLRT, workers  in the store said the man, who was wearing a blue and black plaid jacket, khaki pants, a ski mask and gloves, told them he would shoot them if they tried to stop him, but never displayed a gun. He fled the scene in a truck with toolboxes on the back and amber lights on top of the cab, leaving the pickaxe behind.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
