Re: “Reporter's Twitter question leads to leave for Little Rock teacher and a police report

suffering doesn't build character. Ever. You may learn something from it - like how to cope or adapt (likely mal-adaptive) from abuse.

But please never equate a virtue from suffering.

Life is a balance of pleasure and pain - and the universe demands a balance of the two - life certainly isn't meant to be free from discomfort - it just creeps me out when someone tries to equate physical abuse and humiliation as a road to "building character".

Re: “Attorney general sues over marching band scam

suing the lottery vendor over the scratch-off ticket contract would be a monumental waste of tax dollars.

It would be the state version of feds prosecuting Edwards & Clemens (bad people does not = criminals) Likewise a bad contract does not = an illegal contract. Move on.

Re: “Blog reports candidate Rule's 2010 DWI acquittal

supporting & providing VA services for homeless and other war veterans in and of itself is not a political issue. Where to locate them obviously is / was.

10th & Main was the wrong location.

I assure you majority of business and property owners in the trendy SOMA (south main) area didn't want it at 10th & Main either, and most are likely Rule supporters.

HR would be wise to leave that issue alone.

Re: “Memphis gets $14.9 million for an iconic bridge to Arkansas

a pedestrian bridge via Broadway linking LR & Argenta would be fantastic.

But his efforts to block the veterans day center at 10th & Main was also time well spent.

Sometimes people confuse opposition of a location with opposing actual services.

Re: “Little Rock airport waiting lines

mountaingirl -- exactly. Assuming there is a problem because lines are long in the morning is a stretch. Early AM lines there have always been long, predating any implementation of the body scanners.

I recall waiting in an hour long line there summer of 2005, line was full of people going to Vegas for the Jermain Taylor title fight vs Hopkins.

Today is no different, just more cranky impatient people with cell phone cameras who can't stand to be inconvenienced for more than 15 minutes.
