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.
