No recount, Iowa Democrats say February 6, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.

It's not corruption; it's how Iowa Democrats set up their caucuses. Each state -- and to some degree, each party in each state -- has its own system. We have as much right to tell them to use paper ballots as they have telling us to abandon open primaries -- NONE WHATSOEVER!

Generals say women should have to register for draft February 2, 2016 at 4:57 p.m.

I've long believed women should be required to register, but why reinstate the draft? Even if you think the military is too small, there's no reason to waste what's supposed to be a war emergency measure on that; IMO that can be done without ending the all-volunteer military. Why risk another Vietnam?

Cruz tops Trump in Iowa; Clinton, Sanders in tight race February 1, 2016 at 10:31 p.m.

@WowReally: Though not 100% settled, by the most common interpretation of the "natural born citizen" clause Cruz is eligible despite being born in Canada; he was a U.S. citizen from birth due to his mother's citizenship. (Dual citizenship is irrelevant.)

EDITORIAL: The push is on January 25, 2016 at 12:09 p.m.

How much of Little Rock & North Little Rock is MISSED by today's bus system? The last I checked, West Little Rock does NOT end at Markham & Chenal -- yet that is the farthest west point RRM services. The buses have no riders because they do NOT go to where the riders need them. Yet a modern bus system requires government support because the typical bus rider is the least able to afford it. We've nickeled & dimed CAT to the point that it had to change it's name just to give people an idea of what it can do. IT'S WAY PAST TIME FOR DEDICATED BUS FUNDING!!!

TRAFFIC ALERT: Portion of I-30 near Benton closed after 18-wheeler crash January 20, 2016 at 5:37 p.m.

And yes, I'm familiar with the 67 detour route for construction wrecks there; I've used it a few times myself. The problem is, if the wreck is at MM 110, why is traffic still relatively free-flowing once it passes exit 114? That section should be almost as much a parking lot as before exit 114.

TRAFFIC ALERT: Portion of I-30 near Benton closed after 18-wheeler crash January 20, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.

Needs clarification. If the wreck is at MM 110 (in the construction zone just past Hot Springs Exit 111), then why is the worst congestion *east* of 67 Exit 114? The only piece of congestion supporting MM 110 is on U.S. 70 eastbound approaching Exit 111. Otherwise, it looks more consistent with a wreck between the Sevier Street & 67 exits crossing the Saline River.

WATCH: Little Rock question stumps 'Jeopardy!' players; game ends without winner January 20, 2016 at 8:44 a.m.

@emax: There are a total of 13 official presidential libraries administered by the National Archives (one for every President since Hoover), with the Nixon & Ford libraries operating at two different locations (Nixon in Yorba Linda, CA & College Park, MD; Ford in Ann Arbor & Grand Rapids, MN); there are also private "presidential libraries" for virtually every President (Mount Vernon recently opened one for Washington). Only four of those are in state capitals -- JFK (Boston), LBJ (Austin), Carter (Atlanta), and Clinton (Little Rock) -- which might explain the failed Austin & Atlanta answers.

WATCH: Little Rock question stumps 'Jeopardy!' players; game ends without winner January 20, 2016 at 8:34 a.m.

This story is starting to make the national media -- *not* because Little Rock was the correct answer, but because all three contestants bet (and lost) everything. It's being described as an "epic Jeopardy fail" because NO ONE even bothered to hold back $1 -- most of all the third-place contestant (who was NOT tied for first like the other two). If any of them had held back $1, he or she would have been the returning champion.

Glenn Frey, Eagles co-founder, dies at 67 January 19, 2016 at 7:38 a.m.

Their reunion album was called "Hell Freezes Over" because one of the members once said that's when they would reunite. I guess hell will REALLY have to freeze over to bring them back together now. RIP, Glenn Frey.

New Arkansas line coach splits pants before in-home visit January 19, 2016 at 7:29 a.m.

Careful with that headline. Makes it sound like he quit before ever really starting his job...
