  • Barth: Another Supreme Court's missed opportunity

    Even when blockbuster decisions are not being handed down almost daily by the U.S. Supreme Court, rules of procedure passed down by Arkansas's top court typically gain little attention.

Re: “Tuesday: Headlines and the open line

I think Douthat confirms my frequent screeds against social media outlets. If only we could get people to read newspapers again....

Re: “Confederate flag shirt leads to Fayetteville school suspension

These students are just adolescents, or maybe from their looks, pre-adolescents. And, as Cato, points out, they are not very well-educated either. That's the fault of their parents and their teachers. They did this to get attention and to create a scene, and the principal acted correctly to send him home. It's too bad his wish to go viral succeeded.

Re: “Tuesday: Headlines and the open line

Vanessa, Cooper was snubbed as director, while still winning a nomination as best actor. I don't know if he should have been. I think only a Hollywood insider such as Norma could answer that question. Maybe she will check in.

Re: “Trump's 'compassionate' immigration proposal: Stay tuned

Based upon what I have read above, I despair. I don't think we on the left--the humanists--can ever make peace with the posters such as Marvin and others above. If we beat their president in 2020, however, we might beat them down.

Re: “Supreme Court clears way for Trump's ban on transgender service

Marvin, in your years of service, did you ever meet anyone you could identify as transgender? I doubt that you did, because they were in the service for years, and served honorably, and no one ever knew. What is wrong with allowing these people to continue to serve?
