Re: “Football: Man's work y'all. Right?

Wally wants the next coach picked in one of the five or six different ways the last five or six coaches have been picked because all those picks were good. "Oblivioiusly." Or maybe "obvioiusly." Spell check, Wally.

Re: “Death reported of Robert Johnston, former legislator and homeless advocate

For a number of years Robert has been a member of a book club I am in. When I sent an e-mail to the club membership about Robert's death, a member spoke for all of us when he wrote, "I cannot imagine the book club without Robert." I cannot imagine the world without Robert. Is there any way to print your very nice homage to Robert.

Re: “Mother Jones on the fallibility of forensic science, and efforts by AG Sessions to halt reform

I used fire analysis experts in a number of lawsuits. Several years ago the methods used by the experts were called into question, most prominently in the case of a father executed after he allegedly set a fire in which his three daughters died. The author of a long article in The New Yorker concluded that the man was wrongly convicted.

Re: “Clintons get closer look

I will content myself with disliking the first four comments and congratulating Gene Lyons on another incisive, informative column. I thought I had missed the Tomasky review, but when I checked NYRB, I saw that it is in the June 25 issue, which might be in a stack of mail but certainly is online. I am reading it now.

Re: “Huckabee laments 'F-bomb' use by women in New York

I will not pay for his new book, but I scan parts of it when I'm at Barnes & Noble. How can a man who titles a chapter in a book "Bend Over and Take It Like a Prisoner!" complain about anyone else's potty mouth?

Re: “The Selma open line; the struggle continues

Elizabeth Drew, an unimpeachable voice, excoriates the movie in the New York Review of Books for its inaccurate protrayal of Lyndon Johnson. I will not be able to see it. I'll spend the time re-reading about what really happened.

Re: “A good year for Obama in 2014, except at the polls

It took Bush and the Repubs a short time to enact disastrous tax cuts in 2001 and for Bush and the draft dodger, torture apologist, and sneerer Cheney to get us into a disastrous war the consequences of which President Obama still must deal with. We must be grateful that Obama will be there to stop the insanities of this Republican Congress. We have no such hope with the Arkansas General Assembly.
