Re: “Marcy Doderer to be new CEO of Arkansas Children's Hospital

This sounds like good news: that she is a native who emigrated, and has returned with superior educational resources certainly is. I hope the trend of that kind of social capital being brought to Little Rock continues. Best of luck to everyone at Children's.

Re: “How the private option flipped the Medicaid expansion debate

Good show Ramsey. The style of this piece just called forth images from the golden age of politics, where the truly philosophical arguments were settled by walking ten paces before a duel: I could easily imagine Burris bristling with frustration until the moment he heard the "private option." *the climax of Opus 1812 floods the room* Spinning around eyes as wide as saucers "that's not...!" Adoration aside the information in this article was presented to me in a healthily condensed, thourough, and comfortably dydactic manner. I was surprised to hear about politicians acting in a somewhat, dare I say, reasonable way, but my perspective on contemporary Arkansas politics has not been informed for sometime now (you nailed it on the head when you mentioned "eyes glazing." I was dead tired of hearing about healthcare) and I felt this was a reliably good source of information. Thanks for dedicating time to the type writer.

Re: “A Little Rock pig tale

I am sure this could be resolved by providing Sooie a more appropriate environment for waste disposal than the one that is currently available to him. There is also extensive research on swine psyhology to support the claim that W.P is intelligent enough to be taught to excrete somewhere else; And If there is an obvious dichotomy in the litigation regarding this subject, it is because it is an issue people have argued into law: there is precedent enough in livestock vs pet owners. The owner is given the liability of his/her pet's actions, because in the case of owning livestock you are not expected to train your property. When you establish that W.P Sooie is "people" (which I agree that he is,) W.P Sooie has responsibilities that have to be met as a pet: he poops where you tell him, he lays down where you tell him, he sits where you tell him, he sleeps where you tell him, and he eats the leftovers or a very specific diet designed to lower his gaseous emissions. In the meantime of all that the luxury of petdom is he gets to spend his free time--incidentally all of his time-- chilling at football games and watching humans do silly things in silky human ways. All the same I hope that this does not end up costing a lot of money and the pig. Stay strong Sooie, stay strong.
