When the daily newspaper just isn’t enough

One of the more interesting places to get online information in Arkansas is the invaluable service provided by the good folks at: www.arkansas.indymedia.org ,  which offers news both state and national. There is some great writing to be found there, so do yourself a favor and check it out.

Tell others about it, too.
