Re: “We can do better, Little Rock

Mr. Roberts:

I agree with all your points, save one.

I agree that we are spoiled for choice with the dozens of amazing local restaurants here in Little Rock. Forbes Magazine, last year I believe, had Little Rock as number 3 of they're Top 5 Secret Foodie Cities. We have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to local restaurants. Frankly, I can't believe the chain restaurants still pull in the numbers they do when we have wonderful local fare.

The only thing you wrote I *may* disagree with you is that Arkansans (as patrons, or even as a whole) can do better. The majority of people in the LR Metro, if not the state are relatively poor and they just LOVE eating hot garbage. Some of them even go out of their way to eat the hate-chicken at Chik-fil-A *because* it's hate-chicken.

Again, everything else you wrote I'm right in lockstep with you. Sadly, I don't share in your optimism of Arkansans suddenly growing a conscience when it comes to the dollars they spend on hate-chicken.

Re: “Petrino exchanged 200 texts with Repub bikini model UPDATE

You have love the typical Razorback fan denailist mentality on this.

1: "Um, so it turns out Coach Patrino was in a motorcycle wreck."

2: "Oh my sweet Jesus. Is he okay?"

1: "Yeah, he's a little banged up. In a neck brace. Kinda looks like he skidded to a stop on his face."

2: "Well, thank goodness. I wouldn't want anything to happen to him because the Hogs need him to score touchdowns, and that really is the most important thing in my life."

1: "And I just read here that he had a lady on his motorcycle with him."

2: "Oh, he's so nice giving that girl a ride. Is she okay? I mean I'm only marginally concerned about her unless she somehow helps the Hogs score touchdowns."

1: "She's fine. Turns out she works with him and he gave her $20K and has been his mistress for some time."

2: "Well, I don't care about all that. Clearly whatever she was doing was helping Coach Bobby tell our boys the best way to score touchdowns and that's what's important."

1: "No. Coach Patrino has a family with a wife and kids and because of this one motorcycle wreck, now they all know what a horrible person he is. The U of A's Athletic Director just fired him for various personal misconduct reasons."

2: "Well, THAT shouldn't matter. That's personal. If it in no way hinders the Razorbacks from scoring touchdowns, I don't care about that stuff at all. If Coach Bobby isn't there any more how will they score touchdowns?!? Don't you see? Touchdowns are the most important thing. Not just one lone extramarital affair. This is terrible! (sob) ... how are we going to score touchdowns now?

1: "Yeah the Athletic Director was pretty choked up about there not being anymore touchdowns too, I guess. But again, let's keep things in perspective here. Patrino had a family and friends and they all know about all this woman and the payoff and everything."

2: "PERSPECTIVE?!? We're talking TOUCHDOWNS! Razorback TOUCHDOWNS!! There's NOTHING more important than that!! It's silly. All of this over just one affair with just one woman."

1: "Well, apparently it wasn't just one woman. It says here he was also flirting around with a GOP bikini model."

2: "What have I been telling you? I don't care!!! This man should be showered with a parade of big tittied Republican bikini models 24/7 if it means the Razorbacks score more touchdowns!!! Now hurry up and get your shoes on. We're going to be late for church because we NOW have to fall on our knees and BEG God's forgiveness for Coach Patrino's firing and HOPE that the Lord sees fit to bestow touchdowns on us once more. I swear we're still paying for what we did to Coach Nolan all those years ago."

1: "Isn't that basketball?

2: "Yeah, but the next most important thing to touchdowns is baskets and you see where we are with THAT now, don't you?"
