Here's your daily report on where legislators can eat and drink free today courtesy of the gaping loophole they designed in the putative ethics measure, Amendment 94, approved by voters in November.

FREE LUNCH — Capitol Hill Building, 11:30 a.m., Arkansas Credit Union Association.

FREE DRINKS: Next Level Events, 4-6 p.m., Arkansas Environmental Association (industrial air and water polluters lobby) and Government Solutions (the lobby firm run by former legislators Randy Thurman and Courtney Sheppard).

MORE FREE DRINKS, FREE DINNER — Statehouse Convention Center, 7 p.m. Arkansas Municipal League Banquet. This is the city government lobby, financed by public tax dollars.

  • 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.
