Thursday's open line. Plus, Huckstering; school case

Posted By on Thu, Sep 10, 2015 at 5:16 PM

Here's the open line and daily video. Also:

* HUCKSTERING: The Florida tax exile and Kim Davis revivalist Mike Huckabee had a media avail in Conway today (gee, Arkansas Times wasn't invited) and continued his encouragement, according to the D-G, that county clerks, including in Arkansas, disobey the U.S. Supreme Court and discriminate against same-sex couples by refusing them the marriage licenses to which they are entitled. The yuks are really piling up on Huckabee's continued fractured history related to Dred Scott. He's saying it's still in force, isn't it, since it's a Supreme Court ruling? Stupid Huck. He forgot a couple of subsequent constitutional amendments on the point.

* SCHOOL CASE: The Arkansas Supreme Court today scheduled oral arguments Oct. 8 on the lawsuit challenging the state takeover of the Little Rock School District. At issue is a so-called interlocutory appeal. The state is seeking to have the case dismissed contending the state is immune from lawsuit.

  • 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.
