Mike's Place 

MIKE'S PLACE Shrimp etoufee perfectly spiced and generously shrimped, a table on a brick terrace with a fountain and a big fig plant with its very own tree frog jumping about — what could be a better dining experience on a Sunday evening in Conway? We started with an order of fried green tomatoes, a dozen thin slices in a spicy and lemony batter, excellent. Companions had the homemade gumbo, and exclaimed over the freshness of the ingredients ("Look at this okra!"). The menu at this three-dining-room New Orleans-inspired bistro is enormous and the service excellent. The staff didn't raise an eyebrow when we brought in our own birthday cake for our dessert, graciously putting it in a cooler and serving it when it was time. And of course, there was singing. The frog kept quiet. 808 Front St., 501-269-6453. LD daily. $$. Full bar (requires free membership).

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
