Re: “Head Start cuts hit Arkansas programs

The programs that help the poor are cut because the 1 percent need the poor as a source of cheap labor. Private prisons need them even more.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday

Free Food Trucks Starting Routes

So it all worked out for some of us and the Free Stuff just keeps on keeping on. The Winning Team brought 80-degree weather to Little Rock today (and in November!) and the Free Breakfast Truck arrived on time: Pancakes with strawberries and cream, grits, homemade beer or Starbucks coffee. Then, if you wanted, two marijuana cigarettes (only) per person. You did have to show proof that you voted for him or sign a pledge to vote for him for a third term.

The Free Lunch Truck was a little late, and much grumbling ensued. Lunch was roast beef and gravy, homemade rolls, fresh green beans and new potatoes with apple pie, plus two more joints for those who wanted. A vegetarian menu was available.

Right now we are waiting for the Free Dinner Truck due in a couple of hours. There were complaints flooding the White House switchboard that the trucks were running too close together, but officials said it would take time to get everything sorted out.

Everyone on my street is chilling out, people playing Frisbee up and down the block. The new sound system set up on the street Saturday was working well and the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo sounded fine. Tomorrow the Free Dinner Truck people said they had another Gift: SEEDS, fertilizer and gardening tools so we can grow our own!

Re: “Jon Stewart makes my day

"Remember when you were on that TV program Rawhide as Rowdy Yates and had about 10 words, including 'yep' and 'nope,' the whole season?"
"You don't?"
"You should."

Re: “The Sunday night line

George, unofficially nicknamed The Mole, and his sidekick, Diane Woodruff, The Molene. What a great reporter combination they were!

Re: “Time to settle the school case

These stories, Doc, should attract considered comment, not your opinion. You do not go to the issues. Typical Republican garbage.

Re: “Time to settle the school case

Charters, unlike the public schools, have the ability to weed out those they don't want. Isn't that true? Max would know.

Re: “Capi's to close Sunday

Oh, Ok, HolyShit: You're an idiot. Just my opinion.
