The open line: Gun violence, Trumpmentum and wait for more on LR schools

Posted By on Sun, Aug 9, 2015 at 4:43 PM

Here's a hot Sunday open line. Not much here except gun violence.

* BLYTHEVILLE: KAIT reports one dead and as many as 12 injured in a shooting in Blytheville late last night.

* HOUSTON TEXAS: In Houston yesterday a gunman broke into a house of a former girlfriend and apparently handcuffed people inside then executed eight people, two adults and six children, with gunshots to the head. He had a long record of domestic abuse complaints in involving one of the dead. He surrendered to officers and faces capital murder charges.

* LITTLE ROCK: A man was critically wounded by gunfire at his residence at 9601 Col. Glenn about 2 a.m. this morning. The sketchy police report indicates shots were related to cars that had been outside and drove away after the shooting. UPDATE: The victim was identified later as Dennis Sobba, 55.

On the political front:

* DONALD TRUMP: Well, looks like The Donald won Thursday's debate according to post-debate polling. Of course the polls kind of look like None of the Above, too, with nobody with anything near winning numbers. Mike Huckawho?

And finally this:

Stay tuned. Benji Hardy has some important school news coming.
