The Big Swill: Alas, no cocktail party today

Since today has always been expected to be a fairly light early-session day, with legislators heading home for a long weekend until next Tuesday, no cocktail parties and deluxe banquets are scheduled by the lobby today for Arkansas lawmakers. Not to worry, a legislator can still scrounge a free meal, Amendment 94 or no Amendment 94.

They have a choice:

FREE LUNCH:11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.,  Association of Arkansas Counties Building, host: Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

FREE LUNCH: Room 207 Capitol, 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m., host: Minority Health Commission.

Note that both interest groups here are public agencies, supported by 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.
