Re: “Another mapping project: On the 2016 presidential election

I love that there's a tiny dot of blue up there in the Murray Valley area of Newton County. There're some good and interesting folks in that rugged and remote corner of the state.

Re: “Pop down to the Stifft Station Popup today

I don't have the link at hand, but there's an interesting article from the Gazette in the late 1950s about the city's traffic czar deciding to eliminate the on-street parking along that stretch to make room for four lanes of traffic. The businesses that occupied those buildings at the time were rightfully upset about his unilateral move.

Re: “Wikipedia: History according to Jon Woods

I assumed you were joking about the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, but no, you were not. There is such an organization, and Woods' page says that he is indeed a member.

I'm a little surprised that he didn't list the Shoney's Birthday Club, too.

Re: “Youth services nonprofit referenced in Wilkins bribery plea hired Sens. Lamoureux and Hutchinson to do legal work, former director says

"I just didnt, you know, get the dog off the porch and get in that hunt."

Scandals aside, that is definitely my new favorite phrase.

Re: “Satanic Temple plans to sue state of Arkansas over alleged religious discrimination

"...and other Republican lawmakers..."

If you look back at the votes, the effort to approve the big hunk of rock was quite bipartisan. The behind-the-scenes pushing may or may not have been one-sided, but when the final roll-call came lots of Ds went on the record to support installing a religious symbol on our capitol grounds, too.

Re: “Deceptive push polling targets Clarke Tucker

I got the call last night, too. Caller i.d. said Mena, but that could have been a spoofed number.
