Re: “At long last: Marriage for all comes to Arkansas

Kind of appropriate that you're using 60-year-old studies to try and make the case for your Paleolithic views, Tommy. Back in the 1950s and early 1960s, they also thought it was sound practice to stab an ice pick into a patient's frontal lobe and stir it around a bit to treat depression. And you think THOSE are the learned mental health professionals we should be listening to on how gay folks wind up gay?

Remain calm, Pope. If I was a betting man, I'd put my money on you being about as antique as your research materials. Your outrage at all this disturbing progress will be over before you know it.

Re: “Scattered tacks a hazard on popular bicycle routes near Pinnacle

My thinking would be that a short upholstery tack would likely be too short to puncture a thick car tire, but not the thinner tire of a road bike.

Re: “Morning notes: Pryor-Cotton, Otey, New Hampshire private option

Places to eat in Denver? Hmmmm... just partake of the legal pot. Then anything will taste good.

Re: “Inmate dies after suicide attempt at PuCo Regional Detention Center

TO SoundPolicy: My logic was, he made the attempt, then died later. "Committed suicide at the jail" implies he died there. Probably should have said something like "... a suicide attempt, with the inmate later dying at a local hospital."

Re: “The 3 Best: Donuts

I second that emotion on the Spudnut of El Dorado, and was about to lodge a complaint with the management until I saw that we're confining ourselves to talking about Central Arkansas.

I love Shipley's and I will tolerate a Krispy Kreme, but a Spudnut is a whole different level of nirvana. I know you're gonna think I'm full of it here, but given the choice between a day-old Spudnut or a fresh anything else, I'd honestly have to think about it. They cook them really brown -- much browner than any other doughnut I've ever seen. Even so, they're just pillow soft. When you go to grab one out of the box when they're hot, it's hard not to have 'em wad up a bit just from the pressure of your fingers, and the flavor is amazing.

My in-laws live down in Lower Arkansas, and the Spudnut Shop gets mobbed on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and for good reason. Not quite worth a 200 mile road trip from Little Rock and back, but if you're in the neighborhood, I'd definitely say it's worth a visit.

Re: “Arrest in Arch Street bank robbery

PANDAPRO WROTE: "Without funding from Wall Street, computers and the Internet would have never been developed to provide you a platform for you to proffer your extreme and unnecessary comments."

Just for the record, both computers and the Internet were originally developed by the U.S. Government:
