No photos yet, but this is the best thing in my e-mail this morning, from the University of Arkansas Office of Sustainability:

A herd of goats from Greedy Goats of Northwest Arkansas are devouring invasive plants along a trail on the U of A campus.

What: Greedy Goats

When: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 25 (unless it’s raining)

Where: Oak Ridge Trail, a section near the Garland Avenue entrance.

Removing invasive plants such as bush honeysuckle and Chinese privet gives native species a chance to recolonize the area, returning it to its natural state and supporting the local ecosystem.

Goats don't work in the rain?

  • 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.
