This has nothing to do with Arkansas, but an article in the current New Yorker moved me last night. It's about a Facebook whiz's effort to reach goals, including a final violin performance, while coping with treatment for aggressive brain cancer.

Here's a link to a 10-minute video documentary of the story, "Finding Meaning in Music."
