Live, it's Saturday night! State inspector hunts on the job site; a state candidate plays dumb

Posted By on Sat, Mar 15, 2014 at 3:52 PM

The line is open on a slow Saturday for me. Closing out:

* SON OF THE LR WASTEWATER UTILITY: Remember the Little Rock sewer worker who set off a scandal for living in a trailer on treatment plant property, a controversy that included target shooting on city property? Now from the Baxter Bulletin:

A state official charged with inspecting the NABORS landfill in north Baxter County for the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has reportedly used the 700-acre landfill tract as “a hunting lease” for several years.

State officials didn't know about it, they said. Of course not. Top officials of the same agency didn't know about a giant hog poop factory in the Buffalo River watershed until after a permit had been issued.

* AGREED: DENNIS MILLIGAN WOULD BE AN APPROPRIATE SUCCESSOR — BASED ON IQ — TO MARTHA SHOFFNER AS STATE TREASURER: Lots of people have noted Milligan's approval of a stupid anti-Obama joke on Facebook. Blue Hog Report rounds it up. In Milligan's defense, I'm sure a lot of the Republicans rushing to tut-tut about this laughed at the monkey humor themselves. They just had enough sense not to sign their names.

  • In the margins

    A rediscovered violin concerto brings an oft-forgotten composer into the limelight.
  • 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.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
