Re: “UA Little Rock to hears today of budget reductions next year

So, cut the salary of chairs who actually work, and who usually have teaching responsibilities on top of administrative duties by 17%, but you can bet they'll be expected to do the same amount of work. Meanwhile, administrators, whose jobs mostly consist of trying to justify their ridiculous salaries, aren't asked to switch to 10-month contracts. Seems legit.

Re: “Mueller report includes admission by Sarah Huckabee Sanders that she lied about Comey firing

That first paragraph is a Charlie Pierce-level takedown. Nice.

"this controversial issue"

Nah, it's not controversial any more to anyone but a bunch of homophobic nutjobs.

Re: “The South rises again: Confederate symbolism preserved on state flag

The Arkansas state flag is just a Confederate battle flag cut in two down the middle with the two sides swapped. I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

Re: “A fee for bird-watching? French Hill has an idea for Game and Fish

Sound Policy has it exactly right. Also remember that hunters and fishermen are paying all the same sales taxes that you do, on top of fees imposed specifically on them.

ETA: Why doesn't my iPhone put in apostrophes when I type them in? I don't want people to think I'm some sort of punctuation heathen!

Re: “A fee for bird-watching? French Hill has an idea for Game and Fish

Im not a hunter. I am an avid birder. I also understand the importance of hunting to finance conservation work which benefits both game animals and non-game animals and plants. It hardly seems fair to make hunters shoulder the entire load, and when you do, you can expect the focus of wildlife management to be strictly on game species. I buy a duck stamp every year, even though I dont hunt. I pay an entry fee at federal wildlife refuges, even though I dont hunt. You can hammer French Hill for a lot of reasons, but this proposal isnt unreasonable.
