  • Barth: Another Supreme Court's missed opportunity

    Even when blockbuster decisions are not being handed down almost daily by the U.S. Supreme Court, rules of procedure passed down by Arkansas's top court typically gain little attention.

Re: “Is Tom Cotton staying put after all?

Razor is so ridiculous that he is funny--just a joke.

Re: “Kim Snow takes on Chalene Fite for House seat

The update on your linked article, Libby, says the award will no longer be presented to Harris. Thank God.

Re: “Thursday line's open

He would have to be an anti-hero, Olphart, maybe like Lee Marvin in Cat Ballou. No one is going to accept him as another Gene Autry, although Autry, in real life, was about as conservative as he was, or a modern-day Hopalong Cassidy, or Lash LaRue. Maybe he could star in a remake of Judge Roy Bean.

Re: “U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold faces new allegations of misconduct (UPDATE: Farenthold will not seek reelection)

It's easy being a congressman, if you can endure the shame of whoring yourself out to get elected. Great Congressman, Wilbur Mills, Jimmy Trimble, Sam Rayburn, and the giants of the past were real heroes. There aren't too many left in Congress now. Mainly, you are just casting votes to placate your big donors, and spending a couple of hours a day raising money. All you have to do is look at the picture of the congressman above to realize it doesn't take great intelligence. Or maybe talk to French Hill. He makes the most inane comments of anyone in our delegation. The person in our delegation with the most sense is Steve Womack, but unfortunately he also has a giant ego, and a serious lack of diplomacy.

After writing my tributes to Mills, Trimble, and Rayburn, I got to wondering were they exceptions to the rule? What do you think, Cato.

Re: “Teresa Gallegos launches progressive candidacy for state senate: "Enough is enough."

What this country does not need is more people like Kathryn Phillips. Maybe Alabama could use her. Bigots need some help down there right now.

Re: “Open line

Great film, Sound. Maybe someone will show it to Kellyanne Conway.
