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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    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.
