  • THE UNBLINKING CAMERA: Where will history record 2014 politicians in the fight for human equality?


Open line and this final thought: The Arkansas Supreme Court has set a noon Monday deadline for replies to requests to stay Judge Chris Piazza's marriage equality ruling. That means at least two more days of opportunity for marriage licenses in Pulaski and Washington counties. More happy faces. More families who want to celebrate the institution of marriage, not tear it down. The usual legislative suspects will convene tomorrow to lobby to stop the march of civil rights. That prospect inspired a reader to do a little photoshopping with the famous picture in the Alabama schoolhouse door.

History can be brutal to those worried more about an election this year than what their grandkids might read about them.
