Re: “Trump launches attack on 'SOBs' of the NFL

For some reason the quote marks and apostrophes are getting stripped out of my comment above. Maybe its an iOS 11 thing.

Re: “Trump launches attack on 'SOBs' of the NFL

...the president said at a rally at Huntsville's Von Braun Center in support of Republican senator Luther Strange...

Say what you will about Wernher von Braun and his help in getting our space program off the ground, but its also undeniable that he was an actual Nazi and member of the SS during WWII. You picked a fitting venue for your tirade, mr. president.

Re: “A Highway 10 traffic solution recommendation

Problem: we've spent the last few decades designing and building infrastructure with the simple goal of making driving easier, result being... traffic, congestion, more and more time spent in cars, injury, death, worse health outcomes, more money having to pour into government to maintain the infrastructure we have, increasing difficulty in participating in our economy without first spending thousands of dollars on a car, less resilience, less freedom to choose not to drive, etc.

ARDOT's 'Solution': let's build even more infrastructure to make it even easier to drive!

Is it too late to amend our Amazon HQ2 proposal to include this highly advanced refinement of fundamentally flawed thinking?

Re: “Two LRPD recruits took $5k signing bonus on their way out the door

To bring this full circle to some earlier news...

Amazon (after acquiring and learning from Zappos) offers its employees several thousand dollars each year to quit. Basically, if someone's on the fence about leaving, the company would rather nudge them in that direction instead of having the person stick around only to bring an unhappy vibe to the workplace. Maybe this little police academy snafu is actually LRPD's way of showing Bezos that LR is already hip to the latest trends in HR.

Re: “Arkansas-linked Charlottesville marcher identified, apologizes to those misidentified

"I did not put on that University of Arkansas shirt in order to represent them. Its really like one of my favorite shirts and I was wearing it when I got on the plane. I just didnt put two and two together. It was dumb."

And yet, he still had the time and forethought to obtain a color-coordinated tiki torch for his little Rumspringa. Hmmm...

Re: “More bright ideas from Trent Garner: Veneration for the shotgun and Bowie knife

The Bowie knife as a state symbol makes sense. I'm actually surprised it hasn't already been designated as such.

The shotgun, on the other hand? Not so much. There's nothing inherently 'Arkansas' about it. It's just something people buy. What would be next- official kitchen appliance? Official yard implement?
