UPDATE:

BOBBY'S COUNTRY COOKIN' When we think of good hot plate lunches, we'd never think of finding that at a strip center in West Little Rock. But here it is. And at high noon on a Monday, we're behind about 50 other people and shuffling along in a 15-minute line dance studying the menu board and looking over the half wall at what others ordered and were eating. For speed, they do have a simple price system. Plate lunches with an entree and two sides with cornbread or roll costs $7 even, tax included. Drinks are $1, tax included. Homemade pies, $2, tax included. There are various other plate lunch options. Four entree selections rotate daily from a list of over 20 available and 12 vegetables are offered. We devoured a chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes covered in hot white gravy and turnip greens. Companion went with a healthier baked chicken (leg and thigh), black-eyed peas and the greens, too. The turnip greens were sweet, which we thought a little strange. We topped our lunch with a slice of pecan pie. It wasn't homemade. We'd still go back. Just maybe not right at noon. 301 N. Shackleford, 224-9500, no alcohol, CC, L, Mon.-Fri., $.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
