  • Little Rock needs a new flag

    You may remember the story we ran in July about Phillip Scholtes and Jordan Little's idea that Little Rock needs a new flag. The old one is fussy, featuring what one supposes to be Pinnacle but which looks more like a crawdad hole in the center, and Scholtes (a programmer) and Jordan (a designer) think the city should dump it in favor of a simpler, more symbolic design. The Arkansas Times liked the idea of giving the city a flag we could all wave, so we asked folks to contribute designs.

  • Little boxes

    The Observer has been thinking a lot about houses recently. Junior graduates from high school in a little under three years, and so Spouse and Her Loving Man have been talking about acquiring new digs.

  • Pro Planned Parenthood

    As a Southern woman, with a strong Christian mother, what I'm about to say might surprise you, but I'm a full-fledged supporter of Planned Parenthood.

    The United State Supreme Court began its new term Monday, a year in which we are likely to get definitive decisions on the future of affirmative action in higher education, mandatory union dues, and possibly (if the Court accepts a major case from Texas) abortion. It is also a term in which the Court will spend time with a case that resembles a highly theoretical class discussion in one of my American Constitutional Law courses. As unlikely as it was to ever make it this far up the judicial food chain, Evenwel v. Abbot could begin a trend that would decidedly shift electoral power in the United States.

    Many more mass shootings like the one last week in Roseburg, Ore., will stain the future and no law will pass that might reduce the carnage. That is not a prediction but a fact of life that is immune even to Hillary Clinton.

  • Lyons: Trying to take down Hillary

    To hardly anybody's surprise, it turns out that the "vast right wing conspiracy" has been right in front of our eyes. Always was, actually. Or maybe you thought a seventh Benghazi investigation lasting as long as the Pearl Harbor and JFK assassination probes combined was exactly what America needed.
