KUAR pledge drive reminder: Friday morning, be there

Rosi Smith of Arkansas Children's Hospital and I will be on KUAR at 6:30 a.m. Friday to open the final day of public radio's pledge drive.

Same old same old. You can contribute online. Or you can call 569-8485 or 1-800-952-2528.

As ever, I'll kick in an additional $10 to those who mention the Arkansas Blog (and the rarely-paid $25 for self-identified Republican Arkansas Blog readers).

Rosi and I are wrapping up 20 years of fund-raising for KUAR with tomorrow's session. We're passing the fund-raising torch to a new generation of beggars. We'd love to get 50 or so Blog matching pledges against the usual 30 or 35 to go out with a bang.

Also: posting may be slight in the morning because I'll be on the radio.

UPDATE: Thanks to all. We raised, $15,300, a bit over our goal for the morning, with roughly 35 blog pledges, including several charitable Republicans.

  • 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.
