Involuntary Hiatus

Posted By on Thu, Oct 23, 2008 at 2:01 PM

It's been a crazy week around here.  I haven't been able to keep up with the blog as much as I would have liked. There's been a lot going on.  What with the meeting in Lonoke County (did anybody go?), and this from Pat Lynch this morning:

"State lawmakers question why the Department of Environmental Quality is asking for only four new regulatory positions to monitor Fayetteville Shale natural gas drilling, some saying that is not enough."

Finally!  Some people are starting to pay attention to all this stuff.  It looks like the Dem Gaz is finally in on the action with their story on the Lonoke meeting the other morning.  If any of my eyes and ears out there attended the meeting, drop me a line.  I want to get your input. 

If you're concerned about the impact of natural gas drilling in your state, the only way to change things is to do it through the legislature.  ADEQ needs more regulatory power, and some teeth to back it up.  Write your elected officials!

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
