Mayor Robert "Butch" Berry.

Most residents of Eureka Springs with that nick name are women.

And we get the dumba** comment from fake general. Deduction on your debating skills. I'm still trying to figure out if you're for real or just the dumbest Russian troll out there.

I’m guessing a lot of women just claim to be lesbian when they encounter GM.

I can tell that General Mac is not a Russian. He is totally Harrison home grown. I am sure that his grandpappy helped burn down the homes of blacks. I've always marveled at how Eureka Springs is so much different than Harrison. There are lots of free spirits in Eureka Springs--artists, motorcycle dudes. Eureka Springs is one of my favorite places.

Good to see the Waltons putting their millions to good use. I'm just not sure a hobby requiring a dust-off helipad is for everybody.
