  • THEY'RE OFF: Top runners at the start of the Little Rock Marathon. Slower-paced runners had gotten a head start long before.

The 2014 Little Rock Marathon is in progress in misting rain and temperatures dropping by the minute. But on they go. Brian Chilson has lots of photos at the start at this link.

UPDATE: The elite runners, along with many others,  finished the course but advancing bad weather forced the closure of a portion of the course around 12:30, with those still on the course allowed to finish or re-routed to the finish. Mark Chepses won the men's division with a time of 2:25:42 and Leah Thorvilson led the women with 2:42:41.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
