Generational change

By John Brummett

I was having a phone chat a few weeks ago with the state highway director, Scott Bennett, on the theories and tendencies of contemporary vehicular transportation in Greater Little Rock.

It has been my observation that cities that have become "refuges for new idea progressivism" are invariably crime infested s***holes.
Not to worry, Brummett, Little Rock's already there...

And when you need your cancerous spleen removed, mozarky, I'm sure you'll go to the peaceful hamlet of Ozarky.

Another Mozarky poison pen letter. Absolutely worthless and simply a snarky attack on Little Rock for the sake of showing his viciousness toward his fellow Arkansans and humans in general.

Perfect health here, Dont. No spleen problems whatsoever. What's making you so ill-humored? Aw, don't tell me you live in LR! If you did I could understand your anger.

Denying that LR has a severe crime problem? You're delusional and truth averse...

mozarky,

Little Rock has a major crime problem because the schools and social services are horrible. Kids are left to grow up with drug addicts and thugs. Drug addicts need free birth control and need enforced birth control as a condition of parole. As there are not enough foster care parents in the region, Little Rock could use a couple of SEED Academy type residential options for at-risk youth. Some of the teachers and school administrators need to be sacked and new people hired. School needs to expand the hours and teach the basics. When incompetence in the schools prevails, the kids are not ready for college or decent jobs. When kids have no future, they take and deal drugs.

Just as I observed, these "refuges for new idea progressivism" become crime-infested s***holes. Some of the liberals on this forum really need to stop with the ad hominem attacks and stop being so truth averse.

John, I take it that you want to protect the River Market area and the downtown streetcar system.

Commuter traffic "problems" will continue to exist whether you build a new bridge at the current site, or build on another site to protect the Moses mentality of "I'm leading you developers to the promise land of downtown". The solution lies in overhauling our schools system. No one wants to live in a city with our school system. Charters and Vouchers can solve a lot of issues.
Why do we continue to prop up the downtown area? For those of us who continue to be taxed to support our local government and schools it's a worthless endeavor that profits so few at the expense of so many. Downtown is too many government employees, hangouts for 20-30 somethings with marginal careers, and offices for the developers who suck tax credits and grants to put lipstick on this 40 year old PIG.

That's good, mozarky. I'm sure that when you do get sick, the ozarky medicaid clinic will add an oncology wing to take care of you. Or you'll head to Little Rock. CARTI just built a nice new building. And you could stop in the River Market District, and walk down to the Clinton Library, or the other way to the Capitol. Nearby is the nicest public library in the state, and not much farther the best theater company in the state. If you're feeling unsafe, Don's Weaponry is just a jaunt across the river. More than likely, though, mrs. mozarky will drag you over to the new outlets mall, and your spirits will pick up when you see the Bass Pro Shops in the distance.
