Re: “Suspect killed in West Memphis police chase

"At least one local officer fired on the vehicle, which struck an eastbound tractor-trailer rig. The driver was taken to a hospital, where he later died."

This standalone paragraph makes it seem that the driver of the semi died, which I don't think is the case.

Re: “Griffen's attorneys say Supreme Court justices' alleged procedural error should prompt default judgment

Re: “Griffen's attorneys say Supreme Court justices' alleged procedural error should prompt default judgment

I posted that comment with an apostrophe and it deleted it. I edited it four times to add the apostrophe, and every time it deleted upon posting. Im not sure why the system believes that Judge Griffen isnt allowed to possess a lawyer, but it doesnt.

Geez Louise, I hope whomever wrote that press release is not the same individual drafting Judge Griffens motions.

Re: “The Rep suspends operations, canceling final production of season

I'm looking back through all of the emails I've received from the Rep this year and I don't see any mention of financial woes. As a board member (past and present) of various non-profit organizations, I'm astounded that the governing body and staff of any charitable entity would simply decide to close-up shop instead of making an appeal of loyal patrons first.

Re: “UA Little Rock response to "racially insensitive incident" prompts discussion on campus

Razor, there actually is "one standard equally applied to all:"

Don't use a racial slur for people of a different race.

How is that lost on so many of my fellow old, curmudgeonly southern whites?

Re: “Dream comes true: Dreamland Ballroom gets big restoration grant

Sound Policy, in the end, we have to decide whether we as a society want to preserve our built history. If we decide it is a worthy public policy goal, then we have to decide how we want to do that. Undoubtedly, the federal government could own all sorts of buildings like these across the country, pay full freight to rehabilitate them itself, and then pay to maintain and staff them.

Or, it could save us a bundle and partner with private owners where appropriate.
