OPINION: PAUL GREENBERG: Shut up, she explains

When all else fails a campaigner, why bother with the pros and cons of the issues and all the other piffle of politics when you can simply impose a gag rule on the opposition instead? Which seems to be the campaign strategy of Her Honor Courtney Goodson, if just using the political equivalent of a truncheon can be mistaken for a strategy instead of just a desperate delusion. This decision of hers should rightly be considered less of an argument for her re-election to the state's Supreme Court but for her impeachment.

Opinion-Column One: PAUL GREENBERG: New times, new mayor

posted: 05/13/2018 4:30 a.m. Comment 1

It is the end of one era, the beginning of another in Little Rock's history as its long-time mayor Mark Stodola announces he won't run again. Let all citizens of good will wish him and his well at this point in his and the city's history. His announcement was to the point. "A very recent serious medical diagnosis involving one of my immediate family members has caused me to take stock of the future and make a decision that is best for my family at this time." Enough said. Emergencies compass time.

The second time proved the charm when it came to getting Johnny Cash's boyhood home in Dyess on the National Register of Historic Places, where it has belonged for some time.

In the dim light of this administration's indecisiveness about whether to impose tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum, our neighbors Canada and Mexico have been informed that this country has again postponed a decision on whether to slap tariffs on key commodities like steel and aluminum.

Opinion-Column One: PAUL GREENBERG: The saints next door
