Re: “The Civil War, contd. Statues a diversionary move

That link to the "Confederate support" rally coming up in Hot Springs is rich. Talk of "standing united" and "Without freedom it's all for nothing" is a bit ironic coming from people who want to glorify the treasonous Confederacy that went to war to keep a whole race of humans from being free. Not that these (so far only seven, thank goodness) guys going to the rally are exactly self-aware.

Also when are we going to talk about the overt symbols of the Confederacy in our state flag? Besides the star-spangled bars surrounding the diamond, a nod to the Confederate flag, the legislature even added a fourth star in the middle ABOVE the state name to symbolize the Confederate States of America as one of the four nations that had once "owned" Arkansas.

Re: “Arkansas school board member photographed in blackface

Blevins was my first school district, where I started kindergarten. I moved to Little Rock before the schoolyear was out, but I had happy memories of it until now.

Just think, eighty black children there going to school under this hateful loser's guidance, as if they didn't have enough disadvantages already. I wish I could hug every one of them.

Re: “Boys State goes for Trump in a landslide

Any idea how this compares to Girls State? I'm particularly interested in how the race's gender politics resonate with the girls this year.

Re: “UPDATE: On rumors of a plan to make it a sex crime to use wrong restroom.

Besides every other offensive, hateful, and pigheaded thing wrong with it, it also is a grave insult to people who have been victims of true sex crimes. Rape is not equal to using what some people consider the "wrong" restroom. Just stop.

How do people get elected missing both a brain and a heart?

Re: “An unexpected treat at the Crown Shop

Check out Kopper Kettle's handmade specialty chocolates in Fort Smith and Van Buren next time you're up thataway. Yumtastic.

I used to work at The Crown Shop and made the fudge. It is addicting. UAMS' bookstore also makes excellent fudge of many varieties. :)

Re: “Pizza Cafe West maintains winning formula

I had to look several times before I found the restaurant's address and contact information associated with this review, way at the far bottom of the article, after the share bar, tags, and navigational prompts. It would really be helpful to have the restaurant's address, website, phone, etc. highlighted at the top of the piece or in the sidebar somewhere prominent, and also described more specifically in the review. This one seems to assume we've all seen that they have a new location and know where it is. Just a formatting suggestion for your webfolk. Thanks.

Re: “A curry and a spring roll at Green Papaya

Fantastic Vietnamese food at Green Papaya. It's among the very best of Fort Smith's Vietnamese restaurants--and Fort Smith has a LOT of Vietnamese restaurants! Yummy yummy yummy.
