Re: “Potential Pulaski charter school provider under scrutiny in Oklahoma

A few years ago, my wife and I were eating at a restaurant in Kansas City while a guy at the table next to us was telling his friend about his job as a charter school facility "recruiter," going from one small town to another to find potential charter school sites and convince the locals to buy into his company's starting a charter school in their town. He concluded by saying he felt like Harold Hill in "The Music Man."

Re: “Know your history? Survey says most don't, particularly in Arkansas

18 out of 19 for me. I misunderstood the answers on one of them. Took a longer one on Facebook and got all the answers correct, but the question I missed here was not on that quiz.

Re: “Bill proposes to forget about Confederacy on state flag

I read a memoir by a Mississippi woman who was a teen-ager during the Civil War. She said the war was fought over states rights, specifically the right of the state to make slavery legal.

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: “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.
