Re: “An open line, plus an endorsement

"Do they have football in Heaven? Are the teams integrated... ?"

That depends on whose heaven you're in?

Re: “Little Rock to settle for half a pig at War Memorial Stadium — a Hog game every other year

If they can't keep up minimum attendance at Fayetteville they could move their home games to some high-school stadium in Texas? Tyler Texas would probably fill their stadium, and the Hogs would have a decent chance of beating the varsity squad at Robert E. Lee High School.

Re: “New development at old Sears site firms up

Can we PLEASE add a light rail line to the I-630 widening project? With the decades long expansion to to the west, coupled with the revitalization of both commercial and residential in downtown and east Little Rock, a commuter line is a no-brainer. As the volume of people increases, the WLR people could use a stress free ride to downtown, and since many downtown residents will forgo cars since they'll live, work, and play within walking distances, they could use a convenient way to make occasional trips to WLR amenities. Putting light rail in the median of limited-access arterials is the least impactful way to accomplish this.

Re: “Virginia inches toward Medicaid expansion

"trying to cut off Obama's nose to spite the face of their own citizens."

That should read: trying to cut off their own citizens' noses to spite Obama face.

It was the citizens of those states who had actual harm, and Obama who suffered the mere spite.

Re: “Still no ruling on Voter ID case

tsallenarng is right. The vote suppressors on the right have no desire to disenfrachise absentee voters (large numbers of military who skew Republican), even though absentee voting is the easiest to do fraudulently.

Re: “Trump administration moves forward with effort to sabotage the census

... or what's the penalty if we lie? I think I'm gonna falsely contend that I'm NOT a citizen. If questioned on my inaccuracy, I'll just say "Let me amend that form I submitted." then proceed to submit it inaccurately 38 more times, like Jared Kushner did with his security clearance application.

Re: “Monday's headlines and your open line

@tsallenarng and NVR. I'm disappointed in both of you. Y'all are usually reasonable and honest posters here, but your characterization of the Great Mills High School shooting was dishonest, and manipulative. This WAS an example of exactly how everyone hopes a School Resource Officer will work. The story you posted a link to indicates that the SRO did put an end to the situation, by advancing toward, confronting, and interrupting the shooter. The story portrays the scene as one where the SRO points his gun at the killer, who reacts by putting his gun to his own head, the SRO shoots at the killer's hand, but the killer gets off a simultaneous suicide bullet to his own brain.

We'll never know if, left alone, the killer would have killed others, but had the SRO gotten his shot off a second earlier may have prevented him from taking the cowards way out and faced justice in the courts instead.(?) I'm not a huge supporter of the concept of School Resource Officers or more guns in schools, but I have to reluctantly admit that in this case it was a good thing, that worked as well as its most optimistic supporters envisioned.
