  • Schlafly's influence

    Phyllis Schlafly, mother, attorney and longtime antifeminist, died recently. What Schlafly promoted was not novel or new. Men had been saying that men and women were not equal for years. However, anti-feminism, anti-women language had much more power coming from a woman who professed to be looking out for the good of all women and families.

Re: “Burge's Turkeys and Hams

Smoked meat is the draw here, but they also make great fried catfish and fried fruit pies. The menu is huge. But this is the single best thing in the place: Containers of smoked turkey salad. You can pretend there's only a touch of mayo along with the ground up turkey and seasoning. It's healthy, see?

Public defenders aren't on the clock. Same with state attorney general

Re: “UPDATE: Inmates' attorneys ask federal court for investigation of Arkansas executions. Judge OKs gathering of evidence.

I tried to make it clear, but for Bobby Lee and Baker: These attorneys have four other clients facing midazolam executions.

Re: “Calls for investigation follow execution of Kenneth Williams, observed 'lurching' and moaning during lethal injections

Don't know the answer to that Louie, but I did note a remark to that effect by one of Cecil Boren's daughters.

Re: “Federal Judge Kristine Baker halts Arkansas executions

The victims have not been forgotten. The men who killed them are spending their lives, though alive, in what is essentially solitary confinement for most waking hours. They have no possibility of ever leaving prison. This is severe punishment, if not enough for many.

Re: “Jury awards $415,000 in suit against Josh Hastings over suspect's fatal shooting

Only against Hastings. As article said city was dropped as defendant by judge, though plaintiffs will appeal that because city has deep pockets. Hastings probably has empty pockets.

Re: “Little Rock school tax opponents to ask for another early polling place

LRSD's millage is WAY above minimum tax levels, 32 for operations versus minimum 25, I think. If you truly want taxation to be more in line with debt needs, you'd vote against the debt refinancing because the debt millage produces a hidden $26 million a year for operations, not debt service. Pay the bonds off early and 12.4 mills goes away. Also: Thompson library is on Rahling, not in the Little Rock School District.
