Dear Mahatma: I sense the centerlines between traffic lanes are becoming invisible in Little Rock. Why else would oncoming traffic drift into my lane? The problem seems especially acute on Hinson Road. I realize the city's plan to slow traffic on Hinson has been put on hold. Why not put rumble strips in the center? -- Scared of the Center

Dear Mahatma: I have noticed that on the new signage at the Big Rock interchange some signs are in capital letters — such as DOWNTOWN — while others are in upper and lower case. Is there a rule that keeps the lettering from being consistent?

A crowd gathered in this flower-speckled cow pasture two Saturdays ago to learn what happened here Sept. 19, 1980, when rocket fuel exploded, blowing a 9-megaton Titan II missile warhead out of its silo.

In Arkansas, 1980 was a prodigious news year. It would have been so if the Titan II disaster were the only event of great consequence. There were at least three others.

In September 1980, Arkansans lived and worked near nuclear missiles and words like these were household terms:

Dear Mahatma: Seventh Street in downtown Little Rock is bad news. What plans does the city have for fixing it? -- Bumpity Bump

Dear Karnak of Local Transportation: I compliment city, county and state agencies on their efforts to fill potholes and combat road degradation. But a major artery in downtown Little Rock is being neglected. Broadway! It is so chattered that driving from Markham to Interstate 630 almost makes my dental fillings fall out. -- Duke

Dear Mahatma: Was any consideration given to motorcyclists when the cable median barriers were installed on the interstates? I have read a few reports of motorcyclist deaths as a result of impact with these barriers. I understand the importance, but what about the impact on motorcyclists? -- Two-Wheeler

Dear Mahatma: What are the plans to improve Kanis/Heinous Road between Shackleford and Chenal Parkway? It's already horrible and will get worse when those apartment complexes under construction are opened. -- Everett

Dear Mahatma: Often when it rains, cars fall off Interstate 630 from the westbound lane, just past University Avenue. They slide down the hill behind the Sears auto shop. This picture was taken yesterday as two vehicles, one a car and the other a pickup, both fell off the road within minutes of each other. The photo was taken from my office in the Doctors Building. Notice the grass, how torn up it is from vehicles falling off over the past few days. -- Don

Dear Mahatma: I am pleased most roadways in and around Little Rock are so green despite the heat. An exception is the hill surrounding the Big Rock near the wonderful new Interstate 430/630 interchange. I hope plans are being made to sow new grass this fall or otherwise remedy that unsightly fire hazard. -- Jody

Hi: I saw a person riding in the open bed of a pickup. Is there a law prohibiting this? I seem to remember this is not permitted. -- Dennis

Dear Mahatma: I see a car weekdays on Cumberland Street, LaHarpe Boulevard, Cantrell Road and Riverfront Drive. The temporary dealer tag is several months expired. I resent this deadbeat.
