posted: 02/15/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 8

Do deficits matter? It's a legitimate question, fully debatable, now more than ever.

Personnel flaps keep arising at the state Heritage Department under the leadership of Stacy Hurst. The relevant question is where personality conflict ends and harm to the public interest begins, if it begins at all.

Elizabeth Eckford spoke softly, tersely, and with understated power.

Good writing can cut to the quick, and she is a good writer, which I knew already from her days as a newspaper colleague.

OPINION: JOHN BRUMMETT: Nope, still no Sharia law

A constitutional showdown looms over whether a scaredy-cat president may legally hide from a prosecutor because neither the truth nor perjury works for him. Meanwhile, as that develops, let's change the subject to equally low-brow Arkansas politics.

OPINION: BRUMMETT ONLINE: An unmomentous memo

posted: 02/07/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 16

The big memo was a bust, accomplishing little other than prompting the preposterous second-place president to declare preposterously that, somehow, amid its utter irrelevance, the memo had “vindicated” him.

OPINION: JOHN BRUMMETT: A reason to hope

Michael John Gray is a smart young man and something of an old soul.

OPINION: BRUMMETT ONLINE: The ‘Goddess’ grumbles

posted: 01/31/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 14

The “Gun Goddess,” as she’s called, is upset because Doyle Webb, the state Republican Party chairman, hasn’t disguised very well his obvious favoritism for Gov. Asa Hutchinson in the Republican gubernatorial primary.

OPINION : JOHN BRUMMETT: An overplayed hand

posted: 01/30/2018 2:16 a.m. Comments 26

Not every outrage by Donald Trump is a cause for breathlessness. We must ration our gasps in the Trump age.

OPINION: JOHN BRUMMETT: Dreaming of a deal

posted: 01/28/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 40

There is a deal dimly in sight on the Dreamers and immigration.

OPINION: BRUMMETT ONLINE: Squabble in the city

posted: 01/24/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 16
