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.

  • 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. Soon after, a federal challenge of the law is expected to move forward. McDaniel has pledged to "zealously" defend the Arkansas Constitution but said he wanted the public to know where he stood.

  • Same old, same old

    Remarking as we were on the dreariness of this year's election campaigns, we failed to pay sufficient tribute to the NRA, one of the most unsavory and, in its predictability, dullest of the biennial participants in the passing political parade.

    Looking ahead to state Senate elections.
  • The Oval outhouse

    One thing all Americans finally can agree upon is that public discourse has coarsened irretrievably in the era of Donald Trump and largely at his instance.
  • Sex crusaders

    Some years ago, a married woman of my acquaintance confided that a locally famous physician kept squeezing her thigh under the table at a dinner party. Actually, the fellow was famous for that, too. Removing his hand hadn't worked. She'd thought about stabbing him with a fork, but hadn't wanted to make a scene.
  • Trump's 'Actual malice'

    While his words away from cameras in the Oval Office the following morning will have a more immediate impact on the futures of DACA recipients and America's reputation around the globe, President Trump's statement on libel law in the United States last week represents a more thorough assault on the country's fundamental values through its disrespect for the rule of law and lack of understanding of the nation's history.
  • Along the civil rights trail

    A convergence of events in recent days signaled again how far we have come and how far we have yet to go in civil rights.
