Re: “Hendrix ready to play some football

I went to a Division 3 college. No one watched the school's college football team, and it was a top ten team in the country most of the time I was there. I love football, and I didn't go watch. NO ONE CARES ABOUT DIVISION 3 SPORTS. Enrollment builder???? Whatever.

Re: “The food of the people

Quite a sad list. Basically, if you live south or east of Little Rock --or for that matter, the Heights-- this list essentially says that you provide very little of high quality to the state's eateries. Notable exception: catfish; and catfish farming is basically dying off in this state. Heck, the readers voted "best chicken" to Popeye's! Really? If there was a "best burrito" category, would it have gone to Taco Bell? And speaking of so-called Mexican food, that was an especially sad part to this list. These are not so much winners by taste as winners by being most gringo friendly. For instance, I sometimes wonder if the owners of Cantina Laredo have even been to Mexico let alone would be able to find it on a map. Their mexican fare is about as authentic as the legislature's ethics reform bill. Seriously, AR Times voters, do you really think that the best mexican food is found in restaurants and in locales of our state where Mexicans don't work and/or Mexicans don't live? Best Mexican Food Winner 2012: Any restaurant in Springdale.

Anyway, hats off to the people of Fayetteville and Hot Springs for always coming in as runner-up in this poll; and congrats to the people of Hillcrest/The Heights and Conway for dominating the list. For every true Arkansan knows that the best of Arkansas cuisine and culture is found in Faulkner county. Heard yall are getting a Red Lobster. Make a reservation now. Best Seafood winner for the forseeable future.

Re: “Clerk O'Brien goes to court

Withholding judgment until the Respondents actually respond to what O’Brien filed before the Court, I think something that Pat raised is a very important issue and central to this matter: what is the inherent authority and where is it limited? I await the Circuit Court of Pulaski County’s response.
And just as a general kudos…kudos to Pat for actually trying to improve efficiency, save taxpayers millions, and be environmentally responsible.

Re: “Speak no ill of charter schools

the reviewer's comments have good merits. however, i lost her when she managed to equate the receipt of government assistance to being a bad parent.

Re: “Over lawyer-ed?

and one last point that i forgot to mention...Bowen has a part-time program. If Pike or other graduates thought that they weren't going to get paid well upon graduating w/ a law degree, maybe they should have: 1) not gone to law schoo in the first place, if money was their main reason to go; and/or 2) attended part-time evenings and kept a job during the day, so that they had more professional options upon graduating w/ the JD. this last point about going part-time is another refudiation (thank you, Palin) of the whole "you'll lose your friends and family" when you go to law school reasoning presented in another thread. part-time study lets people keep their social and family commitments.
