Arkansas Business reports here on the $14 million lawsuit by First Arkansas Bank and Trust of Jacksonville over delinquent loans to John Rogers, who built a big business on photographs and sports memorabilia but now seems to be foundering.

Arkansas Business notes that Rogers hasn't been running the business for more than six months. Jacksonville businessman William "Mac" Hogan is now in charge day to day. AB also notes that Rogers' wife, Angelica, has filed for divorce.

We wrote about the Rogers story in happier days in 2012. That was before an FBI visit to Rogers' home (now for sale).

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
