Re: “ASU announces $29 million athletic project backed by private booster foundation

And ASU is above mediocre (if even that) how? Sure, they have had some winning records by beating poor teams in a poor conference. Approx almost 1/2 of athletic spending comes from student fees, tax money, etc. Average what, around 25k attendance? And that is with essentially giving away tickets. Continue relishing in the lack of success on the football field of the states leading institution- (Im sure the national recognition you so desire can still come from that womens bowling team).

Re: “Dear Little Rock,

As a semi regular reader and conservative (albeit not the religous right type), I wholeheartedly agree with this letter. Its an embarrassment what Mayor/chamber said.

And to the individual who posted about how economic development helps taxpayers- that is laughable. I guaranty you, had Amazon actually looked this direction, they would have been bombarded with publicly funded incentives. Oh, and now here comes the argument that we need them to compete with Mississippi, Oklahoma, etc... like the story of the man going broke selling watermelon for less than the cost. The solution? Buy a bigger truck to sell more....

Re: “More details emerge on Republican vote suppression

Good Lord - this is news? This is even way over the top for Little Rock Times.

Re: “Fayetteville mulls corporate welfare for TV show. Worth it?

Just add this to the huge amounts of corporate welfare offered to bring new manufacturing entities, the tech park downtown, your logic that the film industry doesnt need this welfare is no different than what our state govt has doled out for years while showing up at the press conferences.

Re: “The long shadow of Paula Jones looms over Donald Trump

Hey Max,
Care to rerun all of those previous stories you wrote chastising BC for much worse matters? Oh yes, that's right, there were not any....

Re: “Bumbling Bielema

Since when is stating the obvious worth praising? Especially in a periodical that despises our flagship university to begin with. I'm shocked that the Walton's are not thrown in here or how the LR school system would be so great if people just left it alone.

Re: “What happened

Investigator- that is perfect.
This column/editorial is even extreme for such an already extreme leaning publication.
The fact that they were never prosecuted does not mean they were "clean" of any wrongdoing. Anyone who knows the true Whitewater story knows that the Clinton's reasoning to invest had nothing to do abt anything other than believing they had inside info and from there they continued operating at best in a grey area.

But perhaps Mr Lyon's writing about the foundation is perhaps his best effort while putting his own blinders on. The wealth they generated, the inside information and help they gave to friends and family, speaking fees prior to her supporting the donor. Etc., etc. etc...

(And for what it's worth, I voted for neither major party). What Mr Lyons and the rest of the self perceived liberal elite have yet to get, acknowledge, or perhaps even care about is that the election was way less about a bunch of rednecks supporting Trump and much more about people who can see what Hillary is- not a good person and basically unelectable. Other than the financially struggling state of California and the Northeast, most folks who work for a living chose not to support her.
