Times photographer Brian Chilson is observing the gathering of Confederate monument worshippers and counter-demonstrators in Hot Springs today. I'll pass along some of the sights here and I'm sure he'll post a full Facebook folder eventually.

By midday, only a small group of neo-Confederates were on hand. They were greeted with signs representing divergent views. UPDATE: Several dozen Rebel reinforcements arrived later.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
