  • OPPOSITION: Rallies against Puzder and his fast food company have been frequent.
Republican opposition seems likely to squelch President Donald Trump's nomination of fast-food titan Carl Puzder to be Labor secretary, CNN reports.

He's anti-labor and also had housekeeper problems. I'm not sure, still, that he's the worst cabinet appointee. Betsy DeVos is a runaway winner of the unqualified title. But it's another potential setback for a man who doesn't like being a LOSER!

UPDATE: It's official. He's withdrawn.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

  • 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.
