Re: “Fatal shooting at Col. Glenn apartments

Dear Company,

Want to move here? Great! We have a few good bike paths and cool pedestrian bridges, one of which is super long over a dam. Our Rivermarket is hopping too.

I have to confess you might not be too thrilled with the number of shootings we have along with a few other things I'm not too proud of. But, hey, what am I going to do?

I get it if you don't want to come here but, anyway, hope to hear from you soon in case this ain't a deal breaker.

Love,
Little Rock

Re: “Deficits don't matter any more; tax cuts for the rich do

The elimination of the personal/dependent exemptions for parents with dependents are harmful at $4K per oneself and child. If you have are the single mom with a kid you lose more exemption than you gain from an increase in the standard deduction. Now they might expand the child tax credit but that only helps the parents that have income taxes to pay. And, who can gauge what that expansion will be because it's not spelled out.

And, of course, this is all a setup to convince everyone later the government can't help pay for children's, parents', and grandparents' health care and other benefits because the revenue isn't coming in like it used to so.

Re: “LR told D.C. before it told city residents it wasn't going after Amazon

I keep thinking the song the "Sadder-But-Wiser Girl For Me" from The Music Man needs to be written as a parody for this weird context. Anyone up for it? I'm not feeling the creative mojo right now.

Re: “ACLU joins review of 'rehabilitation' agency's treatment of poultry workers

How else are you going to support this staff? Donations from churches?

Can you imagine if it was Atheists for Alcoholic and Addiction Recovery did this? Or some Muslim group?

Re: “Tom Cotton to CIA?

Too many Trump appointees seem like bungee bosses.

Re: “The blood business: A supplier change in Central Arkansas

Red Cross doesn't allow for blood donations if you have been in jail for 72 hours in the last 12 months. The Arkansas Blood Institute doesn't care? Granted, they screen it, but still, I like the Red Cross precaution methods better.
