Our endorsements 

With early voting well underway, and Election Day speeding toward us (it’s Tuesday, Nov. 2) the Arkansas Times repeats its previous endorsements and adds two new ones, both stalwart progressives — DISTRICT 29 STATE REP. JANET JOHNSON of Bryant, a school teacher, and DISTRICT 45 STATE REP. BETTY PICKETT OF CONWAY, for re-election. n President — JOHN KERRY. How wonderful it will be to once more have a president who doesn’t smirk. Or violate civil liberties. Or shower tax cuts on the rich that the poor have to pay for. Or make up reasons to start wars that he can’t finish. Or appoint extremists to the Supreme Court. Or … • U.S. Senate — BLANCHE LINCOLN • U.S. House of Representatives, District 2 — VIC SNYDER • Arkansas Supreme Court Associate Justice, Position 4 — COLLINS KILGORE • Constitutional Amendment 1 — FOR • Constitutional Amendment 2 — AGAINST • Constitutional Amendment 3 — AGAINST • Referred Question 1 — FOR • Pulaski County Circuit/County Clerk — PAT O’BRIEN • House District 27 — DAWN CREEKMORE • House District 29 — JANET JOHNSON • House District 38 — DAVID JOHNSON • House District 45 – BETTY PICKETT • House District 46 — ROBBIE WILLS • Senate District 32 — JIM ARGUE • Senate District 33 — IRMA HUNTER BROWN • Wrightsville District Court — HERBERT T.

    Back in 2000, I interviewed Rev. Jerry Falwell on camera in connection with a documentary film of "The Hunting of the President," which Joe Conason and I wrote.

    There goes the Robert E. Lee. But the sentiment that built the monument? It's far from gone.
  • Real reform

    Arkansas voters, once perversely skeptical of complicated ballot issues like constitutional amendments, have become almost comical Pollyannas, ratifying the most shocking laws.

  • The end of an era

    We're sad to report that Doug Smith has decided to retire. Though he's been listed as an associate editor on our masthead for the last 22 years, he has in fact been the conscience of the Arkansas Times. He has written all but a handful of our unsigned editorials since we introduced an opinion page in 1992.

  • A stand for equality

    Last week, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel became the first elected statewide official to express support for same-sex marriage. His announcement came days before Circuit Judge Chris Piazza is expected to rule on a challenge to the state's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

  • Not leaders

    As soon as I saw the Notre Dame graduates walking out of their own commencement ceremony as Vice President Mike Pence began to speak, I thought, "Oh no, here we go again."
