Hillary Clinton's running mate, Tim Kaine, will be in Little Rock this afternoon for a private fund-raiser at the Chenal Valley home of Mike and Deborah Roberts.  Ticket prices start at $2,700, but there are host, co-chair and chair slots available for $5,000, $25,000 and $50,000.

Roberts is a long-time Democrat, but he's had bipartisan connections. Former Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe joined the Roberts group after leaving office at a time when Asa Hutchinson III, son of the Republican governor, was of counsel to the Roberts law firm. He's no longer with the firm.  Gov. Hutchinson reappointed Roberts to a seat on the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. Hutchinson also appointed Roberts' brother, Bud, as Alcoholic Beverage Control Divisiona director.

    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.
