It’s a wonder I haven’t been booed and hissed off the blog, since I think President Obama is doing a good job; believe that even… More »

Re: “Brave New Restaurant

Ever try to tell somebody from out of town (or here in town, for that matter) how to get to Brave’s? It’s almost impossible, so usually we just take them. Getting there is well worth the effort, though, since we’ve never met a Brave entree we didn’t like, be it veal, tenderloin, or sole. Splendid sauces and great salads, too, and a wide variety of wines. Wait service? Excellent. We especially enjoy dining out on the balcony which overlooks the river. It’s fun to watch the birds (even saw an eagle once), rabbits, raccoons, turtles, and other riverbank wildlife while dining, and there’s a nice view of the downtown skyline, too, which is quite spectacular after dark. Bottom line: This is one of our all-time favorite LR restaurants. We’re what Peter Brave would call “frequent repeats.”

Re: “What does it mean to be "hacked?"

From the hacking tutorial above:

"Imagine two people having a pleasant conversation ... now imagine hundreds of very loud and obnoxious strangers running up and yelling in their faces."

Brings to mind the gang of old Republican gals who verbally accosted then-U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder and his bride Betsy while they were dining at Graffiti's years ago. And then bragged about it far and wide.

Talk about a bunch of "aging, broken-down debutantes," as my dear sweet sainted wife referred to them at the time.

Re: “Wednesday: Your open line and daily report

"With Scalia on the court, all nine Supreme Court justices had/have their law degrees from Yale or Harvard."

If, as it seems, a U.S. Supreme Court justice MUST be a Harvard or Yale graduate, it's all the more a shame that Bill Clinton decided against nominating chief federal appeals court judge Richard Arnold of Little Rock who finished first in his class at Harvard Law.

So esteemed was the brilliant Arnold that more than 100 federal judges wrote Clinton urging him to appoint Arnold who, despite Clinton's concerns about the judge's health, would have served SCOTUS with great distinction for ten years.

Re: “Steve Womack expects 'frustration' over health care legislation

"Anybody spotted French Hill?"

It was wholly a pleasure to watch the do-nothing but heavily-financed Hill place second in Little Rock and Pulaski County to his poorly-financed opponent Dianne Curry last November. You can safely bet that Curry would not be running and hiding.

Re: “Walmart: Cutting jobs in Arkansas, adding them in California

Read the history of J.C. Penny and Sears to learn the future of Walmart. And for that matter, the future of Bentonville.

Re: “Parole Board recommends clemency for Death Row inmate Jason McGehee

"Williams killed four people in 1998 and 1999. He's talked of becoming religious while in prison."

Seems that only in prison can so many "find the Lord."

Re: “'Dream Land': Don't miss this new documentary from AETN

"White flight to the west continues."

No kidding. Up to 54,000 vehicles are traveling daily on Cantrell between Pleasant Valley Drive and Fairview, the highest traffic volume of any non-interstate roadway in the state. A royal mess early mornings/late afternoons.

Our pal, Perplexed, is smart; he lives downtown.

Eager to see "Dreamland." Fixin' to set the DVR for 7 p.m. Thursday on AETN. Thanks for the info.

Re: “Thursday's open line

Today at Cantrell and River Mountain Road in Little Rock: A black, late-model Lexus RX 450h sporting a dirty Arkansas license plate with faded expiration stickers dated February, 2002. As in 15 years ago. Doubt vehicle owner aware. Hope she/he sees this.
