Re: “Hogs don't bring out the crowds to War Memorial

U of A abandoned Little Rock long ago. It's a bit of a sham to suggest that a LR game is a "home" game for U of A, they pooped in their Central Arkansas nest and ran away long ago.

Re: “Coming to KATV: Lots more Boris

I guess he needs a partner named Natasha - then one of the other TV stations can bring in Rocky and Bullwinkle to be their foils. That would at least bring some fun back into politics.

Re: “UPDATE: Police kill suspect in motel parking lot

Hard to imagine how this particular shooting could have been avoided. It's fortunate that none of the other individuals were injured.

Re: “Actors Jamie Bell and Kate Mara a-Twitter after emergency landing in Little Rock

I'm sorry they were inconvenienced, but airlines don't take emergency diverts lightly. They disrupt the system, they cost $, and they result in displaced (and sometimes disgruntled) PAX that have to be accommodated. If they do an emergency divert, you can depend on it being because of a decision that the aircraft - and people on board - need to be on the ground for a "no kidding" reason.

Perhaps they would be more satisfied with driving the trip. Or traveling by bus.

Re: “Former judge Boeckmann indicted on federal charges

@Bluesyoucanuse - that's an anti-suicide garment. In some jails, during processing they will place a new detainee in one of those after they have been strip searched, deloused, etc. It's a safety measure. Not all seem to have to do that, particularly those represented by private lawyers who may be able to be released from custody without entering the jail after fingerprinting and paying any bond, etc.

Re: “Democratic leadership rumble: Talk of disqualifying Dustin McDaniel for disloyalty

I'm with radical centrist on this. Perhaps this was an act of professional courtesy once the election was over (cue the age old sharks & attorneys professional courtesy joke)...

Re: “Baylor fires football coach and 'reassigns' university president Ken Starr

Tenure generally applies only to faculty appointments (i.e. professor, associate professor, etc). Academic leadership positions such as President, Chancellor, Dean, etc usually serve at the pleasure of whoever they report to and are not protected by tenure. I've read somewhere that Starr "lawyered up" for this and I'd guess a demotion to a Chancellor position is how it played out.
