The Saturday night line: A shoutout for Ghana and Arkansas tomatoes

The line is open. I don't watch much World Cup, but I was pulling for Ghana today and they ended up drawing with favored Germany. I hoped for victory because of the joy it would have brought to this  fish market in Sekondi, Ghana, which I visited recently. The women bear loads of fish in metal bowls. Notice the bowl at lower right, painted with Ghana colors. Radios were blasting football matches when we visited.

Closer to home: Heirloom tomatoes have begun appearing in markets, also Arkansas peaches, blackberries and sweet corn. All is well with the world.

  • 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.
