  • POOL COVERAGE: Benjamin Krain followed the president's trip to Arkansas and provided all these photos.

Benjamin Krain,
the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's talented photographer, was assigned the local photography spot in the press pool assembled to cover President Obama's visit to Arkansas today. That gave other media access to his photos. D-G chief photographer Jeff MItchell provided a selection of them from the president's three hours on the ground. 

I'l let the pictures speak for themselves — of the disaster tour, some with Arkansas officials, and some with people talking to the president about their loss. The crowd of school kids was typical of the reception the president received today. There's a shot, too, of the security precautions evident during the visit.

    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.
