Do you get our daily newsletter about Arkansas Times reporting, not just on the Arkansas Blog, but other blogs and in the week's print edition? If not, sign up here.

I'm reminded by an e-mail I just received about this week's print edition. Top of the list:

*  A KILLING IN POCAHONTAS: Will Stephenson brings together all the parts of a murder whose elements included a drug ring and a snake in a box (featured in the cover illustration above).

* THE LEGISLATURE'S ASSAULT ON WOMEN'S MEDICAL RIGHTS: Leslie Newell Peacock outlines the junk science, myth and simple danger to women in the freedom-limiting bills passed by the legislature to throw up still more barriers to abortion.

* THE RIGHT OF WOMEN AND GAY PEOPLE: Recent events — and Hillary Clinton's presidential announcement — prompt me to write a column this week about progress for gay people and women in Arkansas. It's been both substantial and not nearly enough.
