Tuesday is Equal Pay Day in the U.S., the 10th year of the observance of the date that symbolizes how far into the year the average woman must work before earning what the average man earned in the previous year.

In Arkansas, the figures indicate women make about 75 percent of what men make. The Arkansas Equal Pay Coalition has come up with a nice way to observe the day. Participating businesses will charge women 75 percent of the going price for their goods.

An admirer of Loblolly Creamery alerted me to the deal. Other participants include  ZIN urban wine & beer bar, River City Coffee, Flyway Brewing, Sweet Candy + Gifts, Red Mango - Little Rock and Muse & Render

  • 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.
