V.L. Cox's killing machine: 'Cease'

V.L. Cox has done it again. The artist of the "End Hate" project, an installation of objects she manipulated as a slap-in-the-face wake-up call to the parasitic bigotry that has begun to sap the goodness out of American life, has now created "Cease," human bone assembled in the shape of a rifle. The work is the product of several sleepless nights since the Orlando, Fla., murder of 49 people partying at a gay nightclub.

  • Crazee's still a welcoming waterin' hole

    Where everybody knows your name.
  • Character judgement

    Probably it's not possible to prove beyond a reasonable doubt whether or not Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted then-15-year-old Christine Blasey Ford at a high school house party back in 1982. However, that's not the issue. Kavanaugh's not being charged with a crime, but with being a creep.
  • No sympathy for Sarah Huckabee Sanders

    Oh, to have the privilege to look at Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders through an objective lens. I sure can't, and I am to the point where if I hear one more progressive or even centrist Democrat claim they disagree with her policies then in the next sentence point out that she is "so good at her job" or she has taken on a "tough role," I may scream.

    Meet a new Arkansas-native billionaire — Michael Blue, who grew up in Searcy and graduated from Harding University. He owes his wealth to marijuana.
