Re: “Frank Broyles remembered in film

Nice tribute to the most influential person in Arkansas athletic history. A couple of quibbles sure to draw dislikes: I wish they had chosen a narrator who properly pronounces "Broyles" as a two-syllable word, one who also doesn't say "thee-AY-ter" and "ath-uh-lete." Maybe I expect too much. (Too late to do anything about that, but still could fix the spelling of the word "athletics" under Kevin Trainor's name in the closing credits.)

Re: “Little Rock, Fort Smith land on list of 50 worst cities

I have lived in downtown LR for 7.5 years and worked downtown for 5.5 of those years. Walk to/from work often. Love the restaurants/bars/clubs in River Market District and adore SOMA. Rarely miss Sunday farmer's market at Bernice Garden and often stop in at Raduno for brunch. Other than being asked for money from folks, I've never been hassled. Nor have I ever felt unsafe. Maybe I'm just a dumb hick who doesn't know any better. If USA Today tells me I need to feel unsafe and maybe move out of this hellhole, who am I to argue, right?

Re: “Summer Jam ends unhappily for fans

The Willie show ended at 11:20, which is not exactly "almost midnight."

Re: “Summer Jam ends unhappily for fans

Dwight Yoakam played until 12:15 a.m. at Riverfest in 2006. Same venue.

Re: “Pearls About Swine College World Series recap: one strike away

Several things: 1) Beau Wilcox continues to offer the only thoughtful, reasoned, analytical sports commentary in a newspaper in Arkansas; 2) Deadseasquirrel perfectly diagnosed the way the play should have gone. And with that much on the line the right fielder should have risked a collision rather than risk the chance the ball falls untouched; 3) watching the Tuesday and Wednesday night games in bars proved very interesting. It quickly became clear that a large percentage of those folks glued to the TV were watching only because it was the Razorbacks. They care none and knowing nothing about baseball in general. A woman at the table next to me offered the brilliant observation/question that if Blaine Knight was so damn good Tuesday night then why the hell wasn't he out there pitching Wednesday night. And a guy turned to ask me how many innings the game would be. He said he wasn't sure if college games were 7 innings or 9 innings.
