Some 150 people were already in line at 7 a.m. this morning for the 11:30 a.m. book signing by Hillary Clinton at the Chenal Walmart Supercenter. About 1,000 were expected to make it through with a book — one per customer. She was greeted warmly during her two-hour signing stint for her "Hard Choices.'

The crowd was warm toward the former secretary of state and first lady, with many saying they wanted to wish her well. A number sayd they were "ready for Hillary," the battle cry of an independent group of old friends and supporters that is raising money and information for a 2016 presidential campaign.

Well-wishers included a successor Arkansas First Lady, Ginger Beebe.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
