Re: “Changing minds: The West Memphis Three

Exhibit 500 doesn't present the picture of a kid who didn't fit in at West Memphis for his taste in music and clothes.

Re: “Who killed the West Memphis children?

The things that outrage people puzzle me. A jury won't convict in Marianna and its the worst thing ever. Two juries do convict in Craighead county and its the worst thing ever.

The only people who come up empty in this formulation is a schoolteacher and 3 second graders.

Do we at least recognize that Hollywood is going to find "the real killers" from West Memphis about the same time that OJ does.

Maybe the old Blackstone idea that its better for 10 guitly escape than one innocent suffer is in play here?

Re: “Mike Ross' run for governor

The disconnect over Ross has me confused too. He's been great for the district. He'll be great as governor. In the meantime, Hillcrest/Heights will still keep supporting candidates who are unelectable.

Re: “Medical marijuana campaign underway

I'm skeptical about the claim that smoking marijuana is "good for you". Seems like all these studies are using marijuana in liquid form. When the proposed statute is talking about legally cultivating plants or carrying dried leaves and flowers around, I'm not sure I follow the medicinal argument.

But then again, I'm not sure this campaign will make it to the ballot.

Re: “We're No. 1 — in uneducated legislators

Isn't this what happens with Term Limits?

Re: “Kansan named to head UA Law School

Considering that the access to justice commission whines nonstop about Arkansas being underlawyered, why not have two schools?

Dean Leeds will be a great add for UA if she can accomplish what she outlined in her presentation a few weeks ago.

She might even get UA grads to match UALRs bar passage rate.

Re: “Court overturns Jennings Osborne award

Seems like neither one of these parents should be entrusted with a child. But what's a judge to do?
