Re: “Salty and rude, with a chance of chicken and fish

In searching for the corporate web site, I discovered that the domain name www.sharksfishandchicken.com is up for sale. Interesting.

Re: “Tipping: Yes, No, Maybe, How Much?

I tend to agree with jtsims. However, I realize that if restaurants DID pay their help a decent wage, then the price of my meal would be dramatically higher. Therefore, I generally tip 15-20% for average service. I believe in 15%, but I tend to tip 20% because it's just easier to figure. For better than average service, I will tip 25%. For poor service 10%. For terrible service, I tip ZERO, and feel NO guilt. Once, at a Denny's in Fort Smith, my breakfast was so exceptionally cooked that I asked to go to the kitchen where I complimented the cook personally and handed her a $5 tip. I also left the waitress 20%.

Re: “Good morning Arkansas

Rather than raise my blood pressure by dwelling on politics and taxes, I prefer to think about a life spent in service to the law. Happy Birthday, Ginger, and may you see many more.

Re: “Cheese dip countdown

The original cheese dip restaurant was at Prothro Junction in NLR, of course, not Hot Springs.

Re: “Free schools mean what?

"I've never heard of a textbook fee or purely academic fee in an Arkansas public school (but let me know if you have)."

When I was in high school (I graduated from Beebe High in 1965) Arkansas high school students were required to purchase their textbooks. This placed quite a burden on working class families.
