Domestic Abuse - one possible approach?

Posted By on Thu, Oct 25, 2007 at 11:11 AM

October is domestic abuse month. Many of us have known women who have had relationships with human monsters who are all too set on - as the writer Alan Moore once wrote - breaking all the bones of their soul.

And it’s all too true that many of these men go from relationship to relationship, oozing charm at first, but soon enough showing their true colors. So I’ve been thinking. How about when one goes for a marriage license, the state is required by law to tell someone if a potential partner has ever been convicted of domestic abuse?

It might not save every woman, but surely some - if not most - would say, “No, thanks, buster.” 

How about it, lArkansas egislature?

Child Abuse website

The state of Arkansas a new website devoted to child abuse: www.arkansas.gov/reportARchildabuse.

Sad there has to be one, but let’s help make others who may have need of it aware of it.

On the Air with Wayne Fincher

Next week those fascinated by all things Fincher can see a 2006 interview I conducted with the Commandant of the Militia of Washington County on Fayetteville’s Community Access Television - Channel 18 on the Cox cable line-up in Fayetteville.

Days and times:

Monday: 7pm
Tuesday - noon
Saturday - 6pm

So - how does one get to be a commander in a militia? Are there, like, militia academies?

According to one blog I read this morning - http://thatgirltasha.blogspot.com/2007/07/ficher.html - the militia sometimes held their meetings at “the local courthouse.”

Say what?
