what are Trickey's qualifications to discuss if or if not climate change is caused by humans ? didn't catch her degrees or scientific experience. and does the lady also get upset at the lawlessness that occurs in Little rock on a daily basis ? don't think anything in Little rock should be celebrated until the horrendous crime wave has been extinguished. Maybe another job for the national guard ?

When these brave young people broke the race barrier to attend Central High School they walked through beautiful neighborhoods of Arts and Crafts era homes and kids played in the streets and no one worried about being shot just for being outside. Now sixty years later this National Historic landmark and school of excellence is surrounded by boarded up crack houses and the few Arts and Crafts houses left have bars on their windows and the owners are afraid to even sit on the porch. Shame on Little Rock, shame, there is no excuse for the murder and violent crime rate in our city and how sad that people driving through Little Rock wanting to visit Central Hugh School have to see how far it has fallen.
