Posted By on Thu, Jan 15, 2015 at 3:38 PM


Here's the Thursday open line and our roundup of the day's news by video.

ALSO:

* LORENE JOSHUA DIES AT 84: KARK has a notice on the death of Lorene Joshua, 84, former president of the NLR Chapter of the NAACP. Her name has already gone down in history for her role in the Pulaski County desegregation. It is Mrs. Joshua who gives her name to the "Joshua intervenors," the representatives of black students in Pulaski County schools whose interest lawyer John Walker has represented for so long.  Funeral is at noon Jan. 19 at St. Peter's Rock Baptist Church in North Little Rock.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
