Re: “I-30 project opposition gains momentum, for good reason

There is a need to fix I-30 downtown. I think that everyone acknowledges that. The issue is the highway department wants to do completely unnecessary things (widen I-30 to 10 lanes), when the real issues could be fixed by improving the I-30/I-40 interchange (by eliminating the lane change), the I-630 interchange, and the 530 interchange, changes to direct traffic to I440 instead of through downtown, etc. You could begin building a subway and commuter rail system in Little Rock/Central AR for the cost of this single project.

Re: “Poll: Mixed views on ballot measures

The solution to those teens losing their jobs is to do away with the silly limit on young adults working with and around alcohol. There shouldn't be a drinking age anyway as it encourages learning drinking habits illegally from other underage drinkers instead of family members and people in the community.

Re: “Little Rock's nannies target clubbing

Little Rock needs to be promoting their 5am clubs not trying to shut them down. I live in Key West now and we shut down at 4am. When I tell people that Little Rock night life is open until 5am, they are impressed. 5am clubs aren't the problem with Little Rock, but the epic levels of violence are.

Little Rock needs to be trying to be more like Austin, TX with its large and varied employment base not Searcy.

Re: “Arkansas Democrat-Gazette speaks — softly — on same-sex marriage debate

Marriage is the legal term for a contractual union between two people and the state. Matrimony is the term used to signify if a church approves of the union or not. There is no need to create new terminology.

Re: “Mark Pryor: Worse than Tom Cotton on gay rights

Arkansas has brain drain going on. I'm gay and out of the closet and I have no desire to go back to Arkansas, despite my family having lived there since it became a state. I've moved on to greener pastures where I don't have to fight for basic respect and the Southern Baptist tax that affects Arkansas and most of the South. I can get elected in most of the country but good luck with that anywhere the Southern Baptists and others of their bigoted ilk make up majorities of the electorate.
