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.

  • 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.
