Re: “Humanist group objects to Nativity scene at Baxter County courthouse in Mountain Home

LOL!

Zooming in on the photo shows a man in a camouflage jacket between Mary and one of the Maji. Wonder if that's Rick Spencer or possibly a token humanist.

Re: “What a difference an oil spill makes in U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin's rhetoric

Today Reuters has an article, "Arkansas lawsuits test fracking wastewater link to quakes." Good read. A snip:

"The litigation marks the first legal effort to link earthquakes to wastewater injection wells, according to a search of the Westlaw database and interviews with legal experts, and the first attempt to win compensation from drilling companies for quake damage."

Re: “Hog farm near the Buffalo River stirs controversy

If Teresa Marks doesn't know enough to consider the Ozarks' karst topography, she needs to step down.

If others don't, here's a map:

The US Geological Survey is certainly aware:

Re: “Eric Holder: Poor timing on praise of Arkansas for prison reform

When I read that, I immediately thought of Arkansas' change in judicial guidelines for possession of less than four ounces of marijuana. Is Holder going to try to do something like that at the federal level? (One would hope.)

Re: “Wacky bus coming to Fayetteville

Maxifer,

Song is probably Bob Dylan's "Talking John Birch Society Blues."

Re: “Proposed pollution-testing program for Mt. Judea hog farm may have hit snag

Wonder if Cargill or the farmer is liable for damages to the first National River or injured workers. They both need to read about the exploding foam on pig poop in Minnesota's barns.


"Exploding hog barns beckon U researchers"

"A team is investigating foam that has caused Midwest swine barns to unexpectedly explode."

February 07, 2012

"A few years ago, hog farmers throughout the Midwest noticed foam building on top of their manure pits. Soon after, barns began exploding, killing thousands of hogs while farmers lost millions of dollars.

"A team of University of Minnesota researchers is looking to find a fix for the foam that is plaguing hog farms.

"The foam traps gases like methane and when a spark ignites it causes an explosion. About a half dozen barns in the Midwest have exploded since the foam was discovered in 2009.

"In mid-September 2011, a barn in Iowa was added to the growing number of barns taken down by the foam. In the explosion, 1,500 pigs were lost, and one worker was injured."
