Trump claims ex-lawyer's phone-taping is 'perhaps illegal' July 21, 2018 at 11:06 p.m.

Trump is correct that MY favorite President did nothing wrong on those tapes -- because that President wasn't on them AT ALL.

Lordy, there ARE tapes!

Overall U.S. economy not harmed by trade battles, Mnuchin says July 21, 2018 at 10:54 p.m.

Remember the old country song that went, "If you're waiting on me, you're backing up"? That's what China is telling Trump right now. China doesn't need to make any concessions; Trump simply has to undo his stupid tariffs. (Same with Canada, the EU, etc.)

Ex-recruit suing Little Rock, city's police chief after probe into racial slur July 21, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.

The article does NOT say Gurley HIMSELF used the N-word on social media posts; his posts were allegedly one reason for his firing, but LRPD could have had other reasons for it. And the "double standard" exists because African Americans who use the N-word use it differently from how whites traditionally use it; even if whites try to use it the way African Americans do, they're likely to be misunderstood due to 400 years of racist usage by whites. (I'm white; I never use it.)

Judge recusal alters hearing in lawsuit seeking halt to I-630 widening July 20, 2018 at 3:55 a.m.

It was NOT "a mistaken assumption on Mays' part". He flat-out LIED about the impact of construction on I-630 traffic, including misrepresenting Hughes Street detours as I-630 detours -- including a claim that I-630 traffic would enter & exit the freeway at Hughes even though there is NO EXIT at Hughes (a fact at least 3 of the 5 plaintiffs should know personally since they live in the area). Judge Moody should seriously consider not ONLY dismissing the lawsuit, but also assessing the Federal frivolous lawsuit penalty and sanctioning their attorney for blatantly lying to the court with frivolous intent to block construction by invoking a bogus traffic theory.

Judge clears way for razing 87-year-old Arkansas bridge; span supporters unable to save it July 19, 2018 at 4:27 p.m.

@tna456: It's Hwy. 79, not 70. Besides, the mistake is pretty obvious when they point to I-40 as "Old Clarendon Bridge" when Clarendon itself is dead center of the map!

Arkansas to add 15 to Sports Hall of Honor July 19, 2018 at 3:41 p.m.

I'm guessing this is the UofA (or as the paper now says it -- correctly -- "University of Arkansas, Fayetteville") Sports Hall of Honor? Just calling it "Arkansas" in the lede potentially confuses it with the independent Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame, located at Verizon Arena.

5 Little Rock residents sue to halt work to widen I-630 July 19, 2018 at 1:54 p.m.

RBear is right. Except for occasional, unavoidable overnight & weekend closures, all lanes of I-630 *WILL* remain open, only narrowed & shifted (which will slow traffic). The claims in the complaint (which I've read) that I-630 will be detoured thru neighborhoods are a flat-out lie.

JOHN BRUMMETT: The challenges of a city July 19, 2018 at 1:46 p.m.

Let's not forget: The "induced demand" theory was used decades ago by those opposed to widening I-30 to Benton; they lost. Recycled BS is still BS!

JOHN BRUMMETT: The challenges of a city July 19, 2018 at 1:43 p.m.

@workerman: Once upon a time that's what the baby boomers were gonna do, so you CAN'T count on the millennials moving us all back downtown. Sabin's "induced demand" theory -- or as I call it, the "Field of Dreams traffic theory" -- is BS; it's actually the other way around. We can't keep twiddling our thumbs hoping the traffic will go away simply because someone thinks it'll force everyone to move back downtown; that's NOT gonna happen. As I've been saying, the "30" in 30 Crossing really means "shoulda been built 30 years ago!"
