Re: “Yell County busts 77-year-old in meth case

This is a bit pedantic, but...

A word in this article grates on my ears. I wish that journalists (and police, who provide the reports) would pay attention to their word usage when describing this drug. "Methamphetamines" is a plural word, and doesn't really make sense when describing a singular drug ("methamphetamine", in this case.) After all, nobody says "cocaines," or "marijuanas."

(It would, however, be valid in the context of describing the 2 enantiomers of the chemical...which just isn't the case outside of chemistry journals.)

Re: “An ISP to love

I wish they'd provide service directly to residences (like an ordinary WISP), rather than requiring landlords to contract with them. It would make them much more useful.

Side note: As far as market competitiveness is concerned, I feel like wireless ISPs are the best thing since dial-up. At that point in time, internet was truly competitive, as the infrastructure was essentially public. Through a similar wide availability of public "infrastructure" (i.e. air), it seems wireless is the only feasible way for new competitors to enter the limited marketplace.

Re: “2018 Best of Arkansas editors' picks

There must not be much saliva birds nest material in the Taiwanese Bird's Nest Nice Look Drink.

"Edible bird's nests are among the most expensive animal products consumed by humans, with nests being sold recently at prices up to about US $3,000 per pound, depending on grading."

However, I am quite interested in the garam masala cola! (I used to try a lot of Asian sodas, but, always, end up with far more duds than winners. Green tea ice cream bars are pretty decent, though.)

Re: “Court dispute reveals malfunctioning Pulaski drug court

I've heard many first-hand complaints of McGowan. Good to know that new cases are not going to be sent to her court.
