Best of Arkansas 2014 

cover_story1-1.png

There are so many bests in Arkansas that the Arkansas Times has to put out this issue every year to cover them all. Last year, our Best of Arkansas issue covered an artist and tattoo aficionado, a water park, french fries and blue politics in a red state. This year, along with a list of all our readers' choices, we're highlighting the Museum of Discovery, Don's Weaponry and the Encyclopedia of Arkansas (which includes an entry on slime molds). Then we asked an interior decorator what he thought about the Times' office. He said it made him want to jump in the river. We're also writing about the rap collective Young Gods of America, with a feature on Altitude Trampoline Park thrown in for some spring.

To help us on our tour of the best of the best, we enlisted Maggie, a Catahoula Leopard dog, who has a nose for winners (but may be permanently afraid of science experiments.)

We've got our editors' picks, too (find best dog, best pre-dinner snack and other iconoclastic bests there), and give you a piece of our minds on pie.

Here, the big list of bests, from clothes to golf courses to liquor stores to liberals.

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
