Re: “Free news: Democrat-Gazette raising daily price 100 percent

I think you might've just committed suicide, professionally, Ms. Frye.

Re: “ABC plugs Arkansas Delta

Thanks, Durango! I missed the story completely.

(Non-subscriber. I know, I know.)

Re: “ABC plugs Arkansas Delta

I guess it's off-topic, but haven't seen it posted elsewhere.

Re: “Republicans look to government UPDATE

Perhaps this has already been discussed and I've missed it, but speaking of Republicans and government, has anyone else received the Mike Huckabee robocall regarding "Obama's Healthcare Plan" or some such nonsense?

I was called last night, and Mr. Huckabee told me I should be pressuring my senators to overturn "Obama's Healthcare Plan." Only four votes in the Senate are needed, he said. Press one to sign the "petition", he said. Also implied that Obama cheated to pass the plan in the first place.

The tone and content seemed to indicate the "petition" was designed for angry senior citizens. (No idea why I was called.) Is this an effort to distract the elderly from watching as their safety net is destroyed?

Re: “Puzzled by dropping crime rate

You must have missed this, Stevie.

"In 2004 the National Research Council reviewed the scientific literature and did their own analyses and found 'no credible evidence that the passage of right-to-carry laws decreases or increases violent crime.' This is not the same as saying the laws don’t affect crime, just that we still don’t know whether they do or not with any degree of certainty."

Like I said, that precious story by Lott still hasn't proved anything.

Re: “Puzzled by dropping crime rate

Just in case you missed the boat and thought the Lott study actually proved anything:

You're welcome.

Re: “The Monday night line

Norma,

Sometimes I hate you, and sometimes I love you; tonight is one of those time it's love! I'm sure you won't care, but I would like to say thank you for calling out Mr. Lynch. Couldn't have said it any better myself. (Obviously.)
