Saturday open line

A lovely day. A bare handful of bigots turned out for a hate march in Arkansas today. Batesville cops kept the peace.

"Vagical Mystery Tour" tonight at Vino's. As Stephanie Smittle wrote: A "coven of hilarious badass feminists who use humor and pop culture to expose the haters fighting against reproductive rights."  UPDATE: Lizz Winstead worked over Tom Cotton and Jason Rapert in the course of her bit, to the delight of the crowd.

What you got?

Only one obscene Facebook message and one threatening phone call on my birthday, with many more of the happier variety. Thanks all.

Oh and I forgot: all kinds of South Arkansas tomatoes arrived at the Heights Corner Market today. THAT is good news.  Better Boys. Early Girls. Arkansas Travelers. Cherokees. Goldens. Also peaches and blackberries.
