Skin and mayhem 

‘MURDER & MAYHEM CHRISTMAS' BURLESQUE
8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Easy Street Cabaret Room. $5.

In what's becoming a holiday tradition, Little Rock's “Finest Assettes” once again present a scintillating night of burlesque, i.e. scantily clad ladies doing subversive sketch comedy. I've heard tell of some sort of “reverse Norman Bates” shower scene, and a femme fatale tribute to film noir. Usually, “feminist” is a modifier thrown in before local burlesque. Take it for what you will that it's nowhere to be found on this year's posters. Hideous Kinky, a local photographer whose name gives you an idea of her work, has documented this year's event since its inception. She'll kick off the weekend with a photography show at the ACAC space at 1419 S. Main on Thursday, 5-10 p.m. In addition to the two shows on Friday, the troupe will reprise their act at 9 p.m. Saturday, also at Easy Street. LM

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
