Thursday night issue forum - and the race is on!

Posted By on Mon, Nov 26, 2007 at 10:11 AM

I like to beat up a lot on the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, but today they’ve got a humdinger of an editorial:

Here we go again
The usual suspect: Cable TV

The editorial gives a pretty good overview of what the debate is about in Fayetteville this week concerning the debate over the Mountain Street Memo, and the proposed changes to the Government Channel.

Thank you, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

I’ll be Johnny One-Note this week, as most of what I write will be about our upcoming issue forum dealing with this on Thursday night. I’ll try to make each entry fairly interesting, though.


On the Air with Dick Bennett

Running an older  show I did with Dick Bennet, founder of OMNI, this week. It’s about how people’s perceptions are manipulated through the media.

It may be a few years old, but the information that Bennett imparts still holds true.

Days and times:

Monday - 7pm
Tuesday - noon
Saturday - 6pm


I hate my scanner

Off to Kinkos to scan photos for my article and book/DVD reviews. Why, Kinkos, you ask? Are you too cheap to spring for a scanner?

No, after seven years and about twelve million images scanned, my scanner decided that enough was enough and decided to die - at the most inopportune moment.

I guess my warranty has probably run out by now, huh?

  • 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.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
