Re: “Paul Bookout changes careers

He's almost daring people to challenge him over this. What an insult to his constituents and to the people of Arkansas. I'm reminded of the famous photo of Johnny Cash giving a big middle finger to the camera. This is the message I take away from the Senator's taking this position lobbying for a company that is regulated by (or should be, anyway) the state.

What will it take for the citizens of Arkansas to rise up and enact a ballot initiative to impose strict and substantive ethics laws for elected officials across the state. Perhaps we need a constitutional amendment to establish a state ethics commission that will be independent of elected officials' meddling. A commission might need some means of protecting its budget from a legislature determined to effectively shut it down by defunding it.

Re: “Truckers back off money grab

Toll booths at each weigh station should do the trick. And keep 'em open 24/7.
