Re: “Jermain Taylor charged with domestic assault

Sad to see so much potential squandered.

Re: “Acxiom to sell data business for $2.3 billion

The portion of "Acxiom" they are keeping is LiveRamp. It's always been in San Francisco so nothing is really moving there. LiveRamp was an acquisition several years back that was made by the current leadership. It's really the only portion of Acxiom that has any growth.

The part that was sold was the original Acxiom that started up in Conway decades ago, which has been stagnant for a while. I don't think that old-line business, which was sold, will be immediately and wholesale moved. However, I would expect some pretty good layoffs to happen as you don't need duplicate accounting, HR, sales, etc. staffs. Longer term I'd guess the odds are 50/50 on if what is left stays in Conway / Central Arkansas.

One area Acxiom has been trying to grow in the old line business that sold is custom marketing databases; however, a good bit of that work has been taking place in Austin for a good while and not in Arkansas anyway.

All told, I'd say there will be some immediate pain with duplicate position layoffs and a good bit of waiting-and-seeing what stays in Conway, if anything. Probably fair odds real estate in Conway is going to get pretty risky for a while.

Re: “Grim and grimmer: The open line

Just think how many things would be different if Robby Mook had decided to actually try in Wisconsin instead of never showing up and letting Trump win a pivotal state.

Re: “Police find body in Arkansas River; apparently that of missing wedding guest

I got put up in a hotel near JFK in NYC years back due to a canceled flight. Was about 8pm so I thought I'd go for a run. The valet stops me and says, "don't even think about running around here". The next morning, in the ride out, I see razorwire, bars over windows, etc. The guy probably saved my life.

Re: “Former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer Jennifer Palmieri to speak at Clinton School

See if she can find Wisconsin on a map.

Re: “Lightning strike in the Heights damages 13,000-square-foot house

Zillow says 2009. Even more impressive a relatively new house was so well built.
