Re: “Darren McFadden arrested on DWI at Texas Whataburger

Felix Jones lasted six seasons in the NFL, which according to the league is the average for a player who makes the team's opening day roster as a rookie, but below the 9.3 years average for first round draft choices. It is more than twice the average career for all running backs.

Re: “Gilbert Baker will have court-appointed attorney

In addition to being an assistant professor, he was making $132,000 a year during his time as a lobbyist for UCA and lives in a house that Zillow calculates is worth $270,000. Seems to me he should be able to afford an attorney.

Fun fact: If you Google "Gilbert Baker," the first 8 hits are for the late San Francisco artist who created the Gay Pride rainbow flag.

Re: “Gilbert Baker indicted in Maggio bribe case UPDATED

What's the over/under for when his name comes off the new parkway in Conway?

Re: “Jim Bailey, sportswriting legend, dies at 86

When I see the preening pretenders in our ESPN sports talk culture these days, it makes me appreciate even more what a jewel we had in Arkansas with Jim Bailey. Max, your description of his writing was spot on. He was a giant.

Re: “Setting the record straight on Baker Kurrus and local control of Little Rock schools

The mayor's just a figurehead and can't do anything about the school district? Then why is he being paid $160,000 a year? If Kurris is concerned about the Little Rock schools and balancing the city's budget, I suggest he start with canceling the annual $300,000 the city ships to the school district-disparaging Chamber of Commerce.

Re: “Thursday: News roundup and open line

Just came back from the state Capitol, where a spirited group of demonstrators held a "red line crossed" protest in response to the forced resignation of Jeff Sessions and Trump's illegal appointment of an anti-Muellar acting attorney general. We finished strong by singing the Star Spangled Banner while several of us took a knee.

Re: “Democrat blasts Tim Griffin for Issue One support

The words "Tim Griffin" and "integrity" do not belong in the same sentence.
