Opinion and Letters

OPINION: Out of a job

posted: 06/24/2018 1:47 a.m. Discuss

I don't know who, if anyone, vetted Matthew Wendt, the now former Fayetteville School District superintendent who lost his job the other day after a stunning alleged sexual misbehavior and harassment claim involving a female subordinate employee.

Bubba McCoy greeted me by asking that I pick up a pen from the floor of his trailer office at Bubba's Auto Emporium.

Animal shelter fracas

OPINION - Editorial: Barking up the wrong tree

posted: 06/23/2018 3:18 a.m. Discuss

The Voices Page has a neat "letter of the month" campaign that we particularly enjoy. But the editorial page has got that beat. For this week we received the letter of the year.

OPINION: PAUL KRUGMAN: Return of blood libel

posted: 06/23/2018 3:17 a.m. Discuss

The speed of America's moral descent under Donald Trump is breathtaking. In a matter of months we've gone from a nation that stood for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to a nation that tears children from their parents and puts them in cages.

OPINION - Editorial: City serpents

She was approaching her driveway after an early evening walk that offered the most comfortable weather the steamy weekend could muster. That's when she saw the intruder--a thick blackish snake, about four feet long, making its leisurely way across the concrete toward the shrubbery at the side of the house.

OPINION - Editorial: What rule of law in Iran?

posted: 06/23/2018 3:16 a.m. Discuss

When Hassan Rouhani ran for president of Iran in 2013, he campaigned on the promise of promoting human rights and individual freedoms in a country that retained a strong authoritarian bent. Five years after his election, it is becoming clear that Rouhani has failed to deliver on these promises. Last week's arrest of prominent human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh is a telling reminder that the regime's repressive tactics remain largely unchanged.

OPINION: Saboteurs' advice

posted: 06/23/2018 3:15 a.m. Discuss

Call it the "electric fence presidency."

OPINION - Guest writer: Informed choices

posted: 06/23/2018 3:14 a.m. Discuss

In 1987 I had a baby girl in Houston, Texas. She was born a month early, and despite complications, she was delivered at a little over five pounds.

OPINION: REX NELSON: UALR comes downtown

posted: 06/23/2018 3:14 a.m. Discuss

In 2016, the Central Arkansas Library System opened a 160-space public parking deck adjacent to its main campus in downtown Little Rock's River Market District. The five-story deck is at the corner of Rock Street and Clinton Avenue. It provided needed parking for the booming neighborhood, but one thing was missing. The ground floor wasn't being used.

As graduates go forth

OPINION: DANA D. KELLEY: Reflective reverie

posted: 06/22/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 2

I don't attend as many book-signing events as I would like. So I was delighted to accept the opportunity last Friday night when a friend with a pair of spare VIP tickets called.

OPINION - Editorial: Play by the rulings

posted: 06/22/2018 3:16 a.m. Discuss

Ah, the good old days. Take, for example, the long-ago year of 1999. Gather around, kids, and we'll tell you about the days when the Internet was just a baby. Back then, "social media" was the paper's personal ads section. Nobody'd heard of Facebook yet. Most of us were just hoping that our PCs wouldn't melt down a minute after midnight, Jan. 1, 2000. We called it Y2K.

OPINION: How to krauthammer

posted: 06/22/2018 3:16 a.m. Comments 4

Charles Krauthammer, the Washington Post columnist, announced last week that he is stricken with terminal cancer and has only weeks to live. Since then, the tributes have poured forth, and rightly so. Charles taught generations of readers and fellow writers how to reason, persuade, live--and now how to die.

OPINION - Editorial: Others say: The games we play

posted: 06/22/2018 3:15 a.m. Discuss

The World Health Organization has a lot on its plate these days. Ebola's made a comeback in central Africa. There are still parts of the world where polio has yet to be rubbed out. Next up for the world's leading health agency? Um, video games.
