Andrew DeMillo at the AP reports on Sen. John Boozman's first day back at his Washington office after emergency heart surgery April 22. The big news is that Boozman said he plans to run for re-election in 2016.

A popular rumor in the political speculation mill before Boozman's heart episode was that he might not seek re-election in 2016, an idea that fueled all manner of speculative scenarios. But he says he is "very definitely" planning on running.

  • 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.
