Re: “Senate committee approves bill to loosen regulation of liquid animal waste

Is there no limit to the environmental damage these guys will advocate? Pig poop is essentially identical to human waste (raw sewage). Will application of "night soil" to pastures be next?

Re: “Accountability: The future of the Little Rock School District hangs on a test. At charter schools on the other hand ....

This situation reminds me of a sign which a co-worker kept on his desk:

"The floggings will continue until morale improves"

Re: “Thursday: Open line and stuff

Got my copy of the new AT monthly. A nice news mag with lots of meat on the binding. Congrats to all who labored on this ambitious new effort. It will take a while to read the several interesting feature articles.

One complaint: Where are the editorials and great columns by Max and Ernie Dumas, among others? I read Gene Lyons on the blog when available, and enjoyed "The Observer" in this issue. Can we hope for Max and Ernie in future issues?

Re: “Michael Storey, Democrat-Gazette columnist, dies at 69

I always marveled at the creative genius who created such subtle satire, which was almost believable. We all loved the occasional innocent who believed his accounts of killer deer, etc.

I never figured how his mocking of Greenberg got past the powers that be at the demozette.

He will be missed

Re: “The saga of Rusty Cranford

Great reporting by David Ramsey and the Arkansas Times staff. Wife and I both read this in the print edition today, and both felt that however enlightening, we each wanted to shower and put on clean clothes after reading. The amoral greed and disregard for the law, etc, in the Arkansas Legislature is mind boggling.

Re: “The legacy of William Harold Flowers

I had the privilege of meeting and knowing Harold Flowers in the mid 1970s. He was interested and supportive of an effort by the United Methodist Church to establish a multicultural church in Little Rock. The Hunter Memorial UMC was relocating from its Macarthur Park building to a new building on Romine Road in west LR. A progressive young minister was assigned to lead this effort, and shortly after opening the new building, Harold Flowers and his wife (and often his family) began to drive from Pine Bluff to the new Hunter UMC on Sunday mornings.

In addition to attending, he was often called on to preach, as a relief to the minister. At the time he was somewhat handicapped, and walked hesitantly with a cane. In the pulpit, he would thump his cane on the floor for emphasis in his sermons. It would have been difficult, if one were so inclined, to let your mind wander during his sermons.

We have never forgotten Mr. Flowers, and have many warm memories of a dynamic, yet very wise elder statesman. Prof. Kirks biography was a pleasure to read, and bring back these memories

Re: “Former Garland Co. Admin. Asst, dog tuxedo fan, pleads guilty to making $162K in fraudulent credit card charges

That tuxedo clad dog looks more like an English Bulldog than a Pug.
