  • CAN'T GET ANY BETTER: Ms. Lena's peach fried pie
Last time I had one of Ms. Lena's famed fried pies was back in March... I picked up a dozen the Saturday before a trip to Eureka Springs, intending on having them as breakfast food. They didn't surivive that long.

A short time later I was devastated to learn that the DeValls Bluff landmark had closed. Heartbroken. Because, my friends, Ms. Lena's Fried Pies are without a doubt the best fried pies I have EVER eaten.

So I'm very happy to let you know tha Viv Barnhill is reopening the shop October 1st to continue fulfilling her mother's wishes, that those fried pies still be made and sold to lucky travelers. It'll be open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from nine in the morning to five in the afternoon. Yay! For more information, call (870) 998-7217.

  • Klan's president

    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.
