Re: “The Easter open line: It's all about death

Arguing with a nun, even one viewed by the hard right GOP as a liberal activist is not a good look. JR Davis just looks like a jackass, particularly on Easter.

Re: “Walmart: Cutting jobs in Arkansas, adding them in California

this is the perfect symbolism for Arkansas - we're not where the tech employees of the world want to be. Why would we be? It's hot, nutty conservative & car-dependent. Tech people generally make money so they can choose where to live. I'd choose SF too if I could afford it. All the Crystal Bridges in the world won't make Bentonville San Francisco. It's poorly laid out & run by people who think more traffic & chain stores equal growth. That's fine but it's not the SF model.

But we are the perfect place to put a distribution center - people who drive their trucks from 45 miles away to drive forklifts & load trucks, etc. That's Arkansas, 3.7% unemployment rate and all.

Re: “Little Rock leadership misses its fault in tax woes

Exactly why they should have said 'no' to I30 Crossing. But they lack that kind of thinking, which is why we're in this mess. Well, that & they'd bend over backwards for the monied interests such as those advocating for more lanes OUT of the city. Alas, we're F'd.

Re: “Democrat-Gazette cuts more jobs

Interesting collection, Durango. I long ago stopped reading the Letters to the Editor so this is news to me.

It's interesting, all these letter writers want is more of the echo chamber. That's not news, that's confirmation. If that's what the people want, then they will end up on Brietbart, RedState, The Caller or whatever the hell else keeps churning out thoughtless dribble.

Newspapers will die as too few want actual news. They want reassurance. POTUS tells these mindless automatons that HE provides the news. Any & everything else if Fake News! We really are screwed.

Re: “Democrat-Gazette cuts more jobs

Serious question - who is left with more than a few years in the job? That is to ask is everyone who remains (absent Wally) a tenderfoot? Admittedly, journalism can be practiced without a long CV but it seems best served by some experience.

I can't see these 22 cuts & innumerable unfilled positions as a reason to get me to subscribe. Add to that a website that is borderline unusable & I can't ever see my household resubscribing.

When I know my money goes to make Boo! richer & fund more charter schools, I'll give my money to anyone else. This is a shame because there's some real journalism to be written on these creeps in the Leg

Re: “French Hill backs Trump's travel ban

Everybody has a price. Hill's is clearly a spot at Treasury.

Re: “State trooper describes Women's Marchers as 'big ol heifers' on social media

Dear Badge Wearers,
Before posting to social media, ask yourself:

"Would Tommy Norman say this?"

If the answer is 'no', don't do it.
