Re: “Every secret thing

As a daily reader of the NY Times, the Guardian and several others, I can honestly say I have not read a more well-crafted piece of investigative journalism since, well, maybe Greenwald's initial Snowden reporting.

Kudos to Benjamin and your future Pulitzer. Well-deserved.

Re: “Casting out demons: why Justin Harris got rid of kids he applied pressure to adopt

Please contact your local representative and demand a petition be circulated within the House. A 2/3 vote by members is the only way to remove Justin Harris.

See Section 12 of Arkansas Constitution here: http://ballotpedia.org/Article_5,_Arkansas_Constitution

I've contacted my local rep, Bob Ballinger.

Here is a handy list for all the legislators:

Re: “Casting out demons: why Justin Harris got rid of kids he applied pressure to adopt

I recommend everyone sign the petition above, if for no other reason than to send a strong message.

Unfortunately, the petition will ultimately have no legal consequence in this matter. With no Recall provision in Arkansas, there is only one way to remove a state representative: 2/3 of the house must remove him.

So, pressure must be applied to every state rep for his removal. It's the only way to do this with the current setup.

More info on this matter here:

Yo, Justin. Kids should EXERCISE, not have EXORCISMS.

You read the manual wrong.

Re: “Casting out demons: why Justin Harris got rid of kids he applied pressure to adopt

Fantastic reporting, truly. Merits a Pulitzer.

I can only come up with so many creative ways to call Harris and his wife despicable human beings, and while it vents a modicum of steam, it doesn't amount to much.

I'd rather be pro-active in getting rid of this fool. I'm a recent transplant from Southern California where, like Arkansas, we have no shortage of political miscreants and criminals. Fortunately, we also have a Recall provision, so if voters make a mistake, they can vote to remove someone from office.

Arkansas has no such provision.

Arkansas needs that provision.

So who would be an open and willing legislature to present this to? (If there are any left after last election).
