Well, I’ve got to have some standards in choosing candidates

Posted By on Wed, Jul 9, 2008 at 12:34 AM

No particular offense, but I’d be very interested this year in learning which Fayetteville candidates will benefit from donations from Renaissance Towers “developers” John Nock and Richard Alexander.

Just so I can vote against them, where I can.

I suspect that others may feel the same way.

No offense, Mr. Nock, and Mr. Alexander.

  • 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.
