The open line. Plus animal cruelty continues at Yellville Turkey Trot

Posted By on Sat, Oct 14, 2017 at 5:06 PM

Over to you.

UPDATE: proof positive that assholes can fly. A photo on Twitter from NWA D-G showed a turkey again being tossed from a plane today at Yellville Turkey Trot. More national advertising for Arkansas.

Yellville Chamber of Commerce, this is your show.

Hee haw.

Update II: The Baxter Bulletin said at least three turkeys were dropped from an airplane registered to a Yellville man. Photos indicated at least two survived. The plane made more passes and it wasn't clear if more birds were dropped.

  • Some working poor may still lose Medicaid under Arkansas’s new work requirements, study finds

    Many Medicaid beneficiaries work full time — or more — but only a portion of the year, the lead author of the study noted. Among the group of recipients who aren't exempt but are currently working, he said, "we found they’re averaging about 35 hours per week. So it’s not that they’re opting to not work ... . It’s more a matter of whether they have consistent work or not.”
