Re: “Asa Hutchinson III carrying concealed handgun with an expired license in DWI arrest, dash cam footage shows

This was apparently his 3rd DUI arrest (1996, 2001, this one in 2016), along with a drug possession charge (2 "molly" - which is a type of speed, I think, and 4 ecstasy pills) from an arrest in Alabama in 2016. He is clearly a danger to others and himself. Must we wait until he causes someone harm or even death? Also, do any or all of these actions put his law license at risk?

Re: “Huckabee apologizes for 'short bus' comment on Fox

Too bad he can't apologize to those who became Wayne Dumond's and Maurice Clemmons' victims after he set the felons free despite the jury verdicts which had sent them to prison. They're dead.

Re: “Rutledge joins legal fight for Trump travel ban

Which of these duties does this action fulfill?
Act 131 of 1911 laid out four general responsibilities of the attorney general's office: 1) to give opinions to state officers and agencies upon any constitutional or other legal question that may concern the official action of said officers; 2) to defend the interest of the state in federal court and representing all state officers, boards, and commissions in litigation involving the interests of the state; 3) to furnish any board or commission an opinion as to the validity of the title on any land they seek to purchase; and 4) to make a biennial report to the governor and the Arkansas General Assembly on all transactions of the attorney generals office."

Re: “Voters defeat Little Rock School District tax extension

For the first time in more than 35 years of voting, my husband and I voted against a millage increase today. Our granddaughter, who we are rearing after the murder of our daughter and who has several developmental challenges, has blossomed since we moved her to the LRSD in the 1st grade so she could receive intensive individualized educational interventions and occupational, physical, and speech therapies which were not available through our small, rural, well-funded, high-scoring public school in south central Arkansas. Despite our eternal gratitude for these interventions. or perhaps because of them, we were not able to support additional funding for the corporatists who have infiltrated the LRSD, usurping the duly-elected school board and silencing the voices of parents and teachers alike. We will vote to tax ourselves to whatever extent can be shown to be necessary when we once again have a "public" school district. #Resist

Re: “Lucie's Place work for LGBT young people gets lift from Daughters of Charity

We are so glad to see Lucie's Place thriving! The passion and determination that Penelope has for their organization is inspiring. They have never given up, even in the face of tremendous adversity, and that tenacity is really paying off. In addition to being affiliated with those seeking to improve conditions for people without permanent housing in the Little Rock area for the past 10 years, I have worked on and off with the Daughters of Charity for almost 2 decades through partnerships with the network of nonprofits for which I work. The good sisters always put people first, as it should be. To quote a great teacher: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."

Re: “An open letter to state Sen. Jason Rapert

In years past, to the youngsters I knew, I oft touted Conway as the "Arkansas town I would move to if I were a young person or family just getting started." I was impressed by its diversity and growth; its seeming openness and accepting culture. Then along came the Tea Partiers and their evil political spawns, such as His Most (Self-)Exhalted Reverend-ish Stanley Rapert. Now I tell young folks to move there only if they have the grit to run him and his kind out of town on a rail.
