The Sunday open line includes photos from the Equality March in Washington, one of several held around the country in support of equal rights for LGBT people and against the policies of Donald Trump.

Note Arkansas was represented at the huge march in Washington, the kind of demonstration of resistance that's said to bother Trump no end. Word out of England today was that he wouldn't be visiting our very special ally as long as there's a chance of mass protests. Chances of those are high just about everywhere in the world, except perhaps North Korea and Russia.

Where was Trump? Playing golf. Earlier this week, he met with groups opposed to equal treatment of gay people.
