Way to go, Wal-Mart!

Posted By on Sun, Oct 7, 2007 at 10:28 AM

The Bikers are leaving our fair city now, leaving us to count our tax receipts.

And it is nice that Fayetteville can play host to an event which draws people in from all around the world. It might be possible, though, that some might go a little too far in throwing out the welcome mat.

Paying a visit to the 6th Street Wal-Mart yesterday, a friend pointed out a roped off area to the side of the building - reserved parking for our motorcycle enthusiast friends.

That Wal-Mart had chosen to nab what were ordinarily disabled parking spaces for this particular honor was especially heart-warming.

Wal-Mart - Live Better.

Figuring that the book had to be better than the movie, I found myself reading the novelization of the George Lucas movie,  "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith," perpetrated by Matthew Stover. My God, it's even worse than the movie!

Reading the author's bio inside the back cover, I learned that, in addition to his other books, Stover is an expert martial artist. I have noticed a disturbing trend in some novel series, in which bad books are produced by martial artists; it's almost as if the publisher was mesmerized by the fact that these people can demolish bookshelves with their foreheads.

The Sounds of Catherine Reed

This might be fun for people who live in Fayetteville and enjoy good music. Community Television is running “The Sounds of Catherine Reed” this week, a program which is put together from music videos Ms. Reed made at C.A.T. a few years ago, and her performance at the Women’s Festival and Conference, held at the UA in 1999.

Reed has released several well-received CDs, and those who enjoy her music may well enjoy this program. Days and times are:

Wednesday: 12:30pm

Friday: 3:00pm

If your community offered public access television, you, too, could enjoy programs like this.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • 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.
