Re: “Arkansas Democratic Party calls for removal of Confederate monuments from public grounds

Serious question here to the Governor and the rest of our elected leaders:

If you do not wish to remove the statues that honor the Confederate dead because you feel they can be used as teachable moments, then why don't you authorize some statues honoring the dead slaves that helped build this country? If you are going after a teachable moment, shouldn't the whole story be presented?

Re: “Arkansas Capitol draws crowd for Charlottesville-inspired unity rally

Just saw the mother of the young man who committed the act of terrorism in Charlottesville being interviewed on television. The interview was conducted Saturday where she was being interviewed by a news crew, and where she was first made aware of what her son had done. When asked whether she knew her son had gone to Charlottesville to attend a White Supremacist rally, she responded by saying she didn't know that it was a White Supremacist rally he was attending. She thought it was a Trump rally. Same Thing.

Re: “Grampa's, and catfish, are back

You are right Hillcrest. Thanks for reminding me. I guess I like Burges as good as any of them. I want to try Eat My Catfish to see how it is. I really like Lazy Pete's. And Doe's Catfish Plate at lunch isn't bad either. Is the Cock of the Walk in Maumelle still open. Been years since I ate there. Was pretty good as well, the best I can remember.

Re: “Grampa's, and catfish, are back

Lassis Inn is good. I eat there three-four times a year. But if it is as good as it gets, then the bar is too low. Soul Fish is average at best. Again, just my opinion. I don't get the need to over season catfish like Soulfish does. In the old days, you could go to North Little Rock to the Catfish House or Grandpa's and the catfish at both places was superb. Catfish steaks were also prominently featured. You see less of them today as everyone wants the filets. The catfish there was rolled in cornmeal, with salt, and maybe some pepper but very simple and fried to perfection. A lot of places use too much salt. Murry's east of Hazen was excellent the last time I ate there, but I haven't eaten there in years. I have heard nothing but good things about Dondie's. I must try it sometime. Lazy Pete's and Flying Fish are both above average. I like them a lot. Burges has great catfish as well. Again, nothing compares to the Grandpa's or Catfish House of old. I will have to try the new one. Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: “Grampa's, and catfish, are back

Would like to know your list of premium catfish purveyors in Little Rock. There are several average catfish peddlers in LR, but I don't know of very many that I would call excellent.

Re: “Sunday open line, plus LR politics

I would rather have Baker Kurris run for Governor. We need someone at the top of this state with his wisdom and independent thinking. As far as the Mayor's race goes, I think we need a petition to change Little Rock's form of government. Our system is broken. This whole Mayor/City Manager concept has to go. We need a real mayor, like North Little Rock has. Our city is set up to fail. We voted Stodola a pay raise sometime back. That was a sham. We don't have a real Mayoral system. We need one desperately.

Re: “Rutledge unhappy about Supreme Court decision on gay rights

Not that the majority of the people of Arkansas care about fiscal concerns of the state when it comes to God, Guns, and Gays, but just how much is the state going to be on the hook for passing and defending another unconstitutional law? One thing about this legislature of ours, the ACLU's got to love them. The ACLU has no shortage of laws to challenge in our state, thanks to this bunch of yahoos at the Capitol.
