Re: “New highway designations honor Johnny Cash, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Levon Helm and Louis Jordan

Their first mistake: it's not Highway 17 from Dyess to Wilson, it's Highway 14, which stretches from Wilson on the East to US 65 just south of the Missouri border.

Re: “UALR joins LRU in dead acronyms file

Or, as friends of mine from the Little Rock area once referred to it, Unfortunate Arkansans' Last Resort. :)

Re: “Why UA student senate rejected resolution against Rebel flag. Sad!

Razorblade, could your family have afforded to own slaves at that time? If they could have, I tell you they would have, not just for the financial advantages but for the status it implied.That ANYONE fought to uphold a society that said certain human beings were animals and property and not human is a tragic commentary on America, and that is the ONLY thing that the Confederate flag represents. The only place one should legally be able to fly it or show it is in a museum.

Re: “Ray Thornton dies at 87

He was a public servant in the truest sense of the word and we need more like him today.

Re: “Readers Choice 2016 results

So, I guess the Times is no longer distributed in Northeast or Eastern Arkansas, at least east of Des Arc? Just surprised that Jonesboro does not exist in these listings.

Re: “Former Sen. Dale Bumpers dies at 90

The greatest Arkansan of all time, including JW Fulbright and 42. He, not WJC, should have been Arkansas's President.

Re: “More cities with a different idea on freeways

Max, I have a better idea: make I-30 a toll road from the Saline County line to the I-430 split.
