Political trends in Arkansas aren't heartening for populists, progressives and other broad-minded sorts. But it could be worse.

You could be in Texaswhere the perverted, violent and crude Ted Nugent is proudly rolled out as a celebrity endorser of the leading Republican candidate for governor. Cat scratch fever, anyone?

Or you could be in Mississippi, where somebody draped a Confederate battle flag (just a historic symbol, not a racial statement, the South's Last Defenders will insist) and a noose around a statute of James Meredith at Ole Miss.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    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.
