OPINION — Editorial: The wrong fight

"One can't believe impossible things."

OPINION: Scammers and scammed

posted: 03/25/2017 2:36 a.m. Comments 4

Many people are horrified, and rightly so, by what passes for leadership in today's Washington. And it's important to keep the horror of our political situation up front, to keep highlighting the lies, the cruelty, the bad judgment. We must never normalize the state we're in.

OPINION — Editorial : Sailing toward confirmation

posted: 03/25/2017 2:34 a.m. Comment 1

It appears likely that appeals court Judge Neil Gorsuch is going to be the replacement for the late Antonin Scalia. Democrats have to oppose him in the confirmation hearings--their base will accept no less--but their hearts really aren't in it. There appears to be no scandal or hidden secrets attached to the man, and his large body of judicial opinions contains nothing outrageous.

OPINION : Truth taking a beating

posted: 03/25/2017 2:34 a.m. Discuss

Some days, it feels as though I have consumed some hallucinogenic mushrooms that are never going to wear off. The novelty is all gone from the tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

OPINION - Guest writer: Cloud of secrecy

posted: 03/25/2017 2:33 a.m. Discuss

With all eyes turned toward national politics, it is easy to lose sight of the threats to democracy we face here in Arkansas, especially when it comes to ensuring government remains open and accountable to the people it serves.

OPINION: More JBS charges

posted: 03/25/2017 2:31 a.m. Comments 2

The Brazil-based meatpacker that provides and purchases the more than 6,000 swine raised by C&H Hog Farms in the Buffalo National River watershed is in trouble after police say it was caught giving payoffs to inspectors and politicians to allow the sale of spoiled meat.

Preserve open records

OPINION: DANA D. KELLEY: Ghosts of hearings past

posted: 03/24/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

C-SPAN is hardly known for its dramatic programming, but viewers this week were treated with coverage of the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

OPINION — Editorial: As the Ledge turns

posted: 03/24/2017 2:14 a.m. Comment 1

Who says the news is all bad when the Arkansas Legislature is in session? Sometimes the news is promising. Or at least getting there. Almost.

OPINION: Let Bannon Be Bannon!

posted: 03/24/2017 2:13 a.m. Discuss

I continue to worry about Steve Bannon. I see him in the White House photos, but he never has that sprightly Prince of Darkness gleam in his eye any more.

OPINION — Editorial: Others say: All the president's tweets

posted: 03/24/2017 2:12 a.m. Discuss

The reputations of FBI Director James Comey and Admiral Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, were enhanced by their joint appearance Monday before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee. The same cannot be said of their boss, President Donald Trump.

OPINION: How to toe the line

posted: 03/24/2017 2:11 a.m. Comments 3

So you are an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump. And you are thinking of applying for one of the hundreds of available positions the president is supposed to fill. Because these are jobs with hefty salaries and responsibility, we are here to help.

OPINION - Guest writer: Pre-K falls behind

posted: 03/24/2017 2:11 a.m. Comment 1

We know that when students have better beginnings, those effects can last a lifetime. Pre-K education forms the building blocks of a student's success, from kindergarten all the way up to entrance into the work force, and we can all agree that our pre-K education system in Arkansas has some room for improvement.

Prescription hurting

OPINION: JOHN BRUMMETT: Odd way to make law

posted: 03/23/2017 4:30 a.m. Comments 5

Gov. Asa Hutchinson came out to his conference room Wednesday morning and said he had just signed the bill for guns on college campuses and Lord knows where all.
