Re: “Pulaski County transit tax fails

Once again, Akanaas votes against its own best interest. Public transit is a public service, no less than roads, utilities or police protection. Mobility is not a luxury. It is a necessity for a better life. Too bad the people of Pulaski County were more interested in myopic self-interest than make life better for all.

Re: “Harrises ended adoption process of third girl via DHS prior to eventual "rehoming" of two younger sisters

The representative appears to have no shame, remorse or guilt. During his press conference, he blamed DHS for everything. I can't see how his wife just stood beside home and let that happen. I know first hand that children who have witnessed abuse and abandonment are broken and damaged. But to say that you as the PARENT had no option but to give them away is no excuse at all. Being a parent to your own biological children is hard. CHOOSING to take in children with known abuse and behavioral issue and thinking you won't need help is unbelievable. Even if it is true that someone in DHS "threatened" to bring abandonment charges, what should that matter, unless being seen as a perfect parent is more important than actually standing up for what is right.

Re: “The charge of the Lee brigade on change in Lee/King holiday law; bill defeated

Cowards. They decided on a voice vote, which really means that no one wants to be on record "for" or "against." Gutless. We continue to be the state associated with backwards thinking and being damn proud of it.
