Who will build Arkansas if her own senators will not? Take Bart Hester. Please.

Posted By on Mon, Feb 5, 2018 at 12:34 PM

In the race to the bottom in the Arkansas legislature, Sen. Bart Hester is a leading contender.

Take his Tweet today. UA-Little Rock should not advertise that it offers a major in dance.

Given the view expressed, he presumably believes it's not even worth teaching. I wonder what else falls on Hester's worthless list?

Not baseball, I guess. Hester lettered three years for the Razorbacks. Did he get beaned once too many times?

I repeat myself, but there's value in all education. I'd introduce Hester to my multi-millionaire frat brother who found philosophy a key to his future success. He also played baseball, a pitcher.  If Bart Hester wasn't a catcher he should have been. Ever heard the phrase "tools of ignorance" applied to catcher's gear?

I know some hard-working Arkansans who don't like subsidizing hate and ignorance with $40,000 salaries, per diem and the ability to legislate special favors for pals, as Hester has done.

  • 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.
