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.

  • So much for a school settlement in Pulaski County

    The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's Cynthia Howell got the scoop on what appears to be coming upheaval in the Pulaski County School District along with the likely end of any chance of a speedy resolution of school desegregation issues in Pulaski County.
  • Riverfest calls it quits

    The board of directors of Riverfest, Arkansas's largest and longest running music festival, announced today that the festival will no longer be held. Riverfest celebrated its 40th anniversary in June. A press release blamed competition from other festivals and the rising cost of performers fees for the decision.
  • Football for UA Little Rock

    Andrew Rogerson, the new chancellor at UA Little Rock, has decided to study the cost of starting a major college football team on campus (plus a marching band). Technically, it would be a revival of football, dropped more than 60 years ago when the school was a junior college.
  • Turn to baseball

    When the world threatens to get you down, there is always baseball — an absorbing refuge, an alternate reality entirely unto itself.

  • 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.

  • Another Jesus

    If you follow the logic of Jason Rapert and his supporters, God is very pleased so many have donated money to rebuild a giant stone slab with some rules on it. A few minutes on Rapert's Facebook page (if he hasn't blocked you yet) also shows his supporters believe that Jesus wants us to lock up more people in prison, close our borders to those in need and let poor Americans fend for themselves for food and health care.
  • Pay attention

    If anyone thinks that a crisis with the Power Ultra Lounge shooting, then he hasn't been paying attention to Little Rock.
