  • Where's Black Oak?

    In the interest of openness, let me say that I was the manager of Black Oak Arkansas from 1967-1979. Having said this, it is a gross oversight that they were not included in the Times' music poll list.

  • Held in contempt

    Among the important elections this year is a race for the Arkansas Supreme Court between Appeals Court Judge Karen Baker and Pulaski Circuit Judge Tim Fox.

  • A Boy Named Sooie
  • I can see the BCS from here

    With the Hogs one game removed from our most crushing loss since 1998, the SEC-West is as ill-defined as ever, and three opponents left on our schedule rank in the top 10 nationally.

    Blinis, spekeskinke, tyttebaer applesauce, lefse crisps: it's the little things that put Norway into this Norwegian bistro on the square.
