Eureka Springs shines on the Daily Show

Here's your link to the Daily Show visit to Eureka Springs and its look at the city's anti-discrimination ordinance.

Eureka — "the thunderdome of gay" — wins. The so-called Christian opponents lose. The dead silence when Rev. Randall Christy is asked for an example of anti-family business downtown is eloquent. Yes, Christy went to the bathroom, too. A nice closing touch comes when Christy bemoans the gays hanging out their flag everywhere you go. He was, naturally, filmed beneath Christ of the Ozarks.

Star of the show: City Council member Joyce Zeller. "Ice cream is not gender neutral?" And, for some reason, she said, the church people are "hung up on bathrooms."

    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.
