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.

  • 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.
