Re: “Monday's open line

Olphart - I, too have had that experience of waking up to angels. Angels who injected Demerol into my IV tubes, making me feel that everything was OK in my world, even though I had a fractured pelvis, 2 compression and one birdcage fracture in my back, and a colostomy.
I totally agree with your description of Mountaingirl.
I was at the VFW downtown playing music on a Sunday night years ago, and Sweet Connie walked up to a guy at the table next to me, and said, "I'll suck your d*ck if you won't tell everybody". To be honest, it was a blow to my self esteem that she ignored me...that guy wasn't even a musician :)
Yes, I know I said "blow" :)

Re: “Jeff Long out as University of Arkansas athletic director. Can Bielema be far behind?

I'm generally against the astronomical amounts of money thrown at college football. However, I do believe that if the new AD brings the "big" games back to Little Rock, it would be a unifying step for the entire state. Even if you didn't attend the game, there was always an electricity in the air on the day of a big game at War Memorial Stadium.
Around 96 or 97, Alabama was in LR. On the Friday night before, it was pouring rain. I was on Markham behind a car from Alabama that had "HOGS SUCK" "CLINTON SUCKS" "ARKANSAS SUCKS" painted on the rear window. I followed them to the bar that they were on the way to. When they left, they discovered something that really"sucks" - four flat tires in the rain :)

Re: “Another assault allegation against Roy Moore

I don't see the need for the tears and dramatics, it gives Moore supporters an opening to question the veracity. Just tell what happened matter-of-factly.
I was just watching an old Johnny Carson show, from the late 80's. Lynn Redgrave was the guest. They were joking about what it meant to "take a meeting" with a studio executive. Ms. Redgrave said, "Well, we know what that means now, don't we"?

Re: “Tuesday topics: Open line and daily video

Tonight, Garrison Keillor had a mostly full Robinson Auditorium audience standing and singing American Standard songs together, with the lights turned up. It was a great show.

Re: “Monday open line

Goof and Jim - too many people spout opinions that are based on "news" sources that were carefully vetted to support what they already believed. They distrust anything that doesn't line up with their position, even if it stands up to objective scrutiny. No amount of verifiable evidence to the contrary will lead them to a different outlook.
It looks like those of like minds will be speaking to the proverbial choir for the foreseeable future. I very rarely encounter anyone that can carry on a barely reasonable political or social conversation, and I'm just a dumbass motorcycle racer...

Re: “More than 20 dead in mass shooting in Texas church

I think the mass shootings should no longer be treated as "special" or "breaking" news stories. They should be listed in the "Police Report" section of the paper.
Dude pulled over for broken tail light. Dude ticketed for failure to yield. Two dudes arrested for fighting over a girl. Dude shoots 50+ churchgoers, killing 27.
Ho-hum. Stop sensationalizing something that happens twice a week.
