Gruesome news from Arkansas State University via Fox 16:

A freshman sorority member attending a rush party cookout Tuesday night at Kappa Alpha fraternity had the shaft of a broken golf club impaled in her neck in a freak accident. The club broke when a frat member was swinging it like a baseball bat at a tossed football. The shaft flew after the club struck the ball and plunged into the neck of Natalie Jo Eaton, 18, of Harrisburg. She was seriously injured and taken to a Memphis hospital after initial treatment in Jonesboro.

Another person was hurt, but not seriously.

  • 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.
