  • THE FINAL PITCH: Boys State delegates hear final election speeches.
American Legion Boys State will have its day at the state Capitol today and it will be something of a Little Rock Central High club meeting at the highest level of the government elected by the rising high school seniors.

In a race between two Central students, Dean Patterson topped Malik Marshall for governor. Other Central winners: Nimit Gandhi won secretary of state. Geshaun Faison won attorney general. Two Central students vied for treasurer and Jace McPherson beat Dhurba Dasgupta. I was told the new governor is active in Young Democrats. I guess he won't be getting an honorary senator certificate from Jason Rapert.

Speaking of Bro. Rapert and myself: One final footnote on the great debates this year at Boys State. Boys State delegates were polled yesterday at the closing UCA session on their favorite speakers of the session. Through the miracle of smart phones, I got multiple copies of the voting in action last night. The "liberal bully" (i.e., me, if you haven't been following) forwarded the one below to Bro. Rapert. No response or certificate yet. He may still be checking Voter IDs.
