Re: “Huckabee and the guns and glory juncture

Fair enough, Norma. I'll cite my favorite "Good Huckabee." This conservative Republican backed a constitutional amendment that gave Arkansas a conservation sales tax that supports wildlife, state parks and Arkansas heritage. We are one of only a few states that designate money to pay biologists and other scientists, protect important natural areas, and support environmental education. It's not perfect, but it's doing lasting good.
Not that I felt at all challenged...

Re: “Arkansas's prison population continues to climb

By my count, if the ADC were a county, it would rank No. 40 in population of the 75 in Arkansas. According to census estimates for 2014, ADC County is bigger than Ashley, Bradley, Calhoun, Chicot, Clay, Cleveland, Franklin, Fulton, Grant, Howard, Izard, Jackson, Lafayette, Lawrence, Lee, Lincoln, Little River, Madison, Marion, Monroe, Montgomery, Nevada, Newton, Perry, Phillips, Pike, Prairie, Randolph, Scott, Searcy, Sevier, Sharp, Stone, Van Buren and Woodruff. Oughta have a fest--or something.

Re: “It's official: Amendment 94, the 'ethics amendment,' is meaningless

Churches are charities. Corporations are persons. Political parties don't lobby. And hogs just play football.

Re: “Republican 'Civil War' rages nationally, but not in Arkansas

Leave it to you, Max, to nail the moment: this "search for a putative Republican soul..." What would we do without you?

Re: “Rainy day open line

I admire Pusey Riot for their artistry and opposition to Putin and I believe I have read everything the ADG has published about their prosecution. Not once, to my knowledge, have they printed the band's name. To me, that is like writing about the Walton family as "the wealthy Arkansas retailers," or "the big discount store family," without ever identifying the subject of the story.

Re: “Vows: Jay Barth and Chuck Cliett

Jay and Chuck's contributions to Arkansas's social, political and cultural life are too many to count. (Not to mention that they're two of the most affable guys around.) I hope that one of these days our state's social, political and cultural leaders will find it in themselves to grant folks like these two gentle men the same rights granted other citizens, most of whom have done far less for Arkansas. Chuck and Jay, sorry you had to leave home to marry, but so very glad you did!

Re: “AG: Cameras can roll at public meetings

Trials are public. Wouldn't it be great if everybody had the same chance as the WM3. Why don't we ask judicial candidates what they think of that idea.
