ARKANSAS TRAVELERS HOME OPENER
7:10 p.m., Dickey Stephens Park. $6-$10.

With Thursday comes the answer to the eternal summer weekday question: “What do you want to do tonight?” Head to the Travs! There's little not to love about springtime baseball, whether or not you give two shakes of your bat about Travs ball or not. You get cheap beer, pretty good hot dogs, fresh air and sunset in an award-winning ballpark for $10, tops. For those who steer as clear of that rowdy beer garden as possible and, you know, enjoy watching the game, keep your eyes on the guys with the hugely appropriate initials of A.R.: Andrew Romine and Alberto Rosario. Even though being four games into the season makes numbers pretty goofy, the fact that they're leading the Travs in batting average by .130 is promising of a few fence fliers to come.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
