The Thursday open line; news headlines and maybe more

Posted By on Thu, Jun 4, 2015 at 4:06 PM

Here's the open line, plus our daily news video. Also checking a story on Facebook from a young woman who says she was asked to leave Girls State because she posted an unflattering comment — "gross," was said to be the objectionable word — on Instagram about an Arkansas elected official. More if and when we can.

UPDATE: More re Girls State. the comment (about Attorney Leslie Rutledge during her speech) did stir some unhappy reaction from Girls State officials. But .... the post was made by a counselor, which does put her more squarely in the target of the bosses as an employee than a student merely exercising the 1st Amendment.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
