Re: “Capital on Capitol: Hall-Davidson sold

Mr. Reed purchased the property Q4 2013 for $800,000, apparently mothballed the project when the state's historic tax credit program changed, and sold it in Q2 2017 for $2,300,000. (source: https://www.arcountydata.com/parcel.asp?it…)

That's a return of roughly $35,000 per month.

If that's being "troubled," I'll take Mr. Reed's troubles any day.

Re: “City Board hearing about crime in Little Rock; suggestions of racially motivated interest

There are all sorts of activism and initiatives in the African-American community to address inner city crime. (Imagine that: A racist conservative pontificating on a subject about which he/she knows nothing.)

Leaving aside the specious claim equating the Black Lives Matter movement with riots and looting, you're missing the essential point: Black Lives Matter is protesting the killing of African-Americans by their government, not by private individuals. I would hope that you would join the protest if the government killed whites or conservatives or southerners at a disproportionate rate, too. The United States has gone to war for less.

Re: “Hillary Clinton: an inspiration

It is still the official office policy of the Pulaski County Prosecutor's Office, told to all newly-hired female attorneys, that they wear skirts instead of pants on trial days.

Re: “Republicans plan African-American 'homecoming'

Suggested step one in celebrating African-American Republicans: Next time, try celebrating the correct spelling of the event chairwoman's name.

Re: “UA-Pulaski Tech deal gets final approval

Don't get me wrong; I have no qualms with the Board of Trustees meeting in Nashville, pop. 4627. That'd be great, in fact.

I was just making sure they weren't meeting in Nashville, pop. 659,042.

Re: “Seventh-day Adventists sue White Hall over ordinance requiring permits for door-to-door religion messaging

Permits required to exercise First Amendment rights? What next, permits required to exercise Second Amendment rights?
