Re: “American exceptionalism: Hunger edition

Calling the expiration of stimulus funds a "cut" to the food stamp program is akin to calling the expiration of tax credits a "tax increase," and I thought Democrats argued that the tax credit expiration wasn't a tax increase. You can't have it both ways.

Re: “The KUAR pledge morning line

Molehill? I seem to remember a lot of folks got upset at the Little Rock A&P for their spending habits that weren't illegal but not right.

Re: “UPDATE 2: Downtown favored for Little Rock Technology Park

I was hoping for the UALR site (with good compensation for property owners). I can't believe that on top of $22 million, the city had to throw in "support from the mayor's office" (whatever that means) and downtown partnership do fundraising to sweeten the pot. This just means more taxpayer dollars and still no money from the "partners."

Re: “Panel split on Little Rock's pot-bellied pig problem

When you make a committee with an even number of people, you are setting it up for a split decision.

Re: “Little Rock makes a Top 10 list as a great place to live

Two issues with this designation

1) They are using metro area population figures - So it's really Conway and Bryant that's pulling us up to no. 1. I wait for the day that these lists review the actual city and not a metro area.

2) Median household income: $47,731
Median home value: $195,762

There seems to be a disconnect between median household income and median home value. Not many families making a combined $47,731 can pull off a $195,762 mortgage (assuming the property was bought for something within 10 percent of that value)

Re: “The line is open: Lofts coming on Main Street

Hmmmm, didn't they "break ground" on the apartments a few years ago. If memory serves, the first K lofts were supposed to be finished shortly after the restaurant was completed. Or am I misremembering?

Re: “Gus's chicken is 'special'

The Memphis location is notorious for long waits so that it's a long wait here comes as no surprise. Only place in the world you wait 45 minutes for 3 pieces of chicken.
