Re: “Barr bends the truth on Starr precedent

Kate, you are most correct in use of the phrase "dulled our senses"! For those that live within range of the odor from paper mills, awareness of the stench only lasts for about 10-15 minutes before olfactory fatigue sets in and one becomes unaware. The same applies to the stench of DJT and all his cronies, his lies, his hate of anyone and anything not DJT! If only he could not be mentioned in any news outlet for just three days! His ego would either explode or implode, either way, I'd love to see it!

Re: “Here's the Mueller report

We must remember a "Commandment" from the Vietnam War (and all others): "If you can see the enemy, the enemy can see you!" If we can read this report, so can the rest of the world!

Re: “Hutchinson declares 2019 legislative session "greatest of all time"

Very Trumpesqe. The only GOAT to me is Mohammed Ali aka Cassius Clay. I did not like him at all early on, yet came to admire him greatly. He did appear very self-centered, but in a positive manner and did not bad mouth nearly every other person to divide our nation!

Re: “Haas Hall: high scores on tests, low score on diversity

As should be expected all the good comments are from the ladies.

Re: “Trump's sanctuary city plan recalls the 'Reverse Freedom Rides'

Git him Vanessa! Re: T Fox, "1 in 5 Federal inmates is foreign born". Why is "foreign born" important? I'd also submit for consideration that the poor folks serve sentences in far more than a 5 to 1 proportion than wealthy, especially when looking at the sentences imposed (or not imposed) on those that pleaded guilty or were found guilty from Mueller's investigation or those high in politics here in Arkansas. Damn, I'd go serve 8 months of a five years sentence if I could bankroll several million bucks. Just responding to the one thing that jumped out at me.

Re: “Negative review for Bart Hester's limit of local control of housing design

This reminds me of a fishing trip once at Lake Conway (I don't have the memory or time to type out the new name!) with a contractor friend. We were motoring slowly down one of the lanes not too far off shore and he started laughing for no apparent reason to me. When pressed for what was so funny, he commented that there was a $100,000 home (this was many decades ago, mind you) on a lot with a pickup camper as a "cabin" right next door. I suspect it is still somewhat that way with a very nice home on a lot and a run down cabin next door. I have taken a picture on an island, probably in the Caribbean but even possibly in Hawaii at an intersection with about five or six utility poles in an eight foot circle with wires going everywhere in all directions. I am a proponent of codes, hence, regulation! Do NOT allow industries, be it banking, builder associations, pharmaceuticals, or congress to regulate themselves. The result will not be pretty! (Jim Clark once told folks not to talk to me, that it takes me all day to say "Good morning!")

Re: “Pinches Tacos: sunny lunch spot, saucy namesake

Stephanie, great article and a bit surprising this near the beginning of the AT for the day. Love the name, and the 'pink' truck. What the pinches not to like! I don't get that way often, but I don't get much by way of good tamales this side of San Antonio! Just "pinches genio"!
