Re: “Intramural newspaper snark

Crystal Bridges in partnership with the Louvre: an exhibit that will show in Paris, Atlanta, Chicago, and Bentonville, Arkansas. Check out the Louvre web site. Almost as impressive as getting to the Cotton Bowl?

Re: “The Monday line

This is what I was taught about slavery in Arkansas in about 1947: Arkansas: Yesterday and Today by Knoop & Grant 1932 was a text written for Arkansas fifth and sixth graders; it contains this passage describing plantation life: “From the time you were a wee baby your black mammy took care of you and watched anxiously over you—often even when you were nearly grown.” . . .”For the most part, the negroes loved their white ‘massa’ and ‘missus,’ while your father and mother took good care of the colored people they owned.”

Re: “The New Yorker chats with Alice Walton

We don't like Wal-Mart; but Wal-Mart is the result of the free market economy--like it or not. We don't like it that Alice is rich through no fault (virtue) of her own--the fact is she is. We just don't like Alice. If Bud could give us a world class Bud Walton Arena, why can't Alice give us a world class museum? What would we have her do with her money? She's likely not going to do a "Mother Teresa" and neither, I suspect, would most of her critics here. Many, if not most, of the great museums of the world were founded or fostered by the very rich--even "robber barons" were they not? Alice is offering us a great museum--for whatever reason. Why can't we accept that? There's more to the quality of life than hunting, fishing, and Razorbacks.
