Here's the Saturday open line.  Plus some odds and ends, including the photos above and below from Grav Weldon of the Northwest Arkansas Pride Parade today in Fayetteville. It's the work of the Northwest Arkansas Center for Equality, working for what the name says for 10 years now. 

Grav Weldon reports perhaps three protestors at the parade.

Also noted:

* CLINTON GRANDCHILD: Bill and Hillary Clinton announced the birth of their second grandchild.

We are overjoyed to be grandparents again with the arrival of our grandson, Aidan Clinton Mezvinsky, born on Saturday, June 18, 2016.

We are all over the moon as Chelsea and Marc welcome Charlotte’s little brother to the world and grateful for our many blessings. Chelsea and Aidan are both doing well and enjoying this very special time together.
* DANGERS ON THE BUFFALO: An extensive article in the Springfield News-Leader describes how a buried root ball caused the recent death of a Buffalo River canoeist from Arkansas, Kristen Johnson. It's an obstacle that can't readily be removed, so take note.
