  • PIANO MAN: Ryan Taylor, in town with his band the Sextones from Truckee, Calif., tries out one of the popuup pianos that debuted in Little Rock today.

The city of Little Rock and the Downtown Little Rock Partnership rolled out the Popup Pianos today, beginning with some ivory tickling at Capitol and Main.

To promote the so-called Main Street Creative Corridor, three pianos donated by Richard Deutsch and decorated by art students, will be placed downtown for people to play as the spirit moves. Outdoor pianos have been popular additions to streetscapes around the world in recent times.

Another will be in the River Market and one will be in the 200 block of Main Street.

Let's hope this works out better than the city's short lived free bike loaner program. The bikes rapidly disappeared. Pianos might be a little harder to cart off.

    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.
