Clinton Library planning 10th anniversary celebration; Arkansas Blog, too

Politico notes that e-mails are circulating to potential participants in a big wingding at the Clinton Library to celebrate the institution's 10th anniversary. The date is said to be Nov. 14, 10 days after the midterm election. Naturally Politico notes Hillary Clinton will be advancing toward a presidential candidacy decision. (She is, isn't she?)

It's sure to be quite a party. Maybe almost on a par with the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the Arkansas Blog just a few weeks before. Our coverage of the rain-soaked library opening and the rush of celebrities to town for the event indeed propelled some of the early growth in our readership.

… Or wait. Maybe it was the Arkansas Blog that drew the big crowd to the library.

Just joking. 

I am sorry to say that various iterations of the "back end" of our web portal have lost the original blog postings to the ether of the digital graveyard. I can't even reconstruct now the precise date of the first post. Or remember what it was. But I'd be remiss in not crediting state Rep. Warwick Sabin, then an associate editor of the Times and now running an innovation hub, with driving the startup. Something in the range of 50,000 posts later, we're still cranking.

PS — The library celebration is going to be more than a one-day affair. A citywide celebration — 10 days to mark 10 years — is in the works.

  • Analysis: Senate tax bill helps the wealthy most

    Sen. Tom Cotton has insisted the Senate tax bill produces a tax cut for all Americans. An analysis by the Tax Policy Center says otherwise, particularly when fully implemented with restoration of temporary cuts in 2027. This analysis joins others in finding the benefits go disproportionately to the wealthy.
