  • 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?

Re: “Home again. Was there any news?


Ellen and I took our kids on a cruise from Athens to Barcelona, with stops in Rome, Naples, Livorno, Monaco and Marseille. Then, in Barcelona, Ellen and I got on a train to France, where we walked from village to village in the Dordogne River valley for a week. I know you don't do Facebook, but my page is open to all and I put photos and more details there.

Re: “Hey, Jeff Bezos! The mayor says come to LR!

Durango hits one prominent nail. Amazon is trolling for zillions in corporate welfare. Normally Arkie politicians are willing. But a handout to a Walton competitor? Sorry Mark, not happening

City can't front this alone as with tech park. Not even a dime on every sales dollar would be enough welfare.

Re: “Eyes in the sky coming to Arkansas highways

Hugo, Harvey, they all look the same to me. Surprised I didn't say Audrey. That's still my lodestar hurricane because it hit my hometown directly after killing hundreds in Cameron about 30 miles to the south.
