  • 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.

  • 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.
