Viva North Little Rock!

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 3:45 PM


North of the river is where you'll find the largest cultural culinary convention in the U.S. this year come September.  MERA's 2010 International Convention will be held in North Little Rock September 27-29 at the Wyndham Riverfront, Pulaski Technical College, and Arkansas Governor's Mansion (yes, I'm aware the Mansion's not in North Little Rock).  Some 250-300 Mexican restaurant owners and operators from across the U.S. and internationally will attend.  This year's theme, "The Mexican Restaurant:  Celebrating Mexico's Independence and Revolution, 200 Years of Independence, 100 Years of Revolution" coincides with the bi-centennial of Mexico's independence from Spain and the 100th anniversary of its revolution.  Seminars will cover Mexican history, how to incorporate local foods into menus, how to harness the Internet and of course food demonstrations and discussions.  More information available at the MERA website.

    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.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
