I lived within walking distance of Park Plaza till six months ago. Good thing I left when I did...

Police: Flat-screen TVs stolen from Little Rock electronics store February 21, 2017 at 4:46 p.m.

Some security -- they were able to haul away the TVs over FOUR HOURS after first breaking in. That surveillance video is like the "security guard" in the commercial whose only job is to tell the people inside, "There's a robbery." Was this an inside job, or did James Bond or Danny Ocean need some flat screens?

Suspect fatally shot after opening fire, Arkansas State Police say February 19, 2017 at 3:57 p.m.

Not so fast, LB. How many "thugs" make it to Bull Shoals? It would be helpful to know the race of the dead perp, even if he was white.

JOHN BRUMMETT: Bad-enough bills February 19, 2017 at 2:14 a.m.

If you read between the lines, that's kinda what Asa! is saying about the "bathroom bill": He equates it to Obama's Title IX guidance, calling both unnecessary governmental intrusions. IMO (as a trans woman) he's wrong about Obama, but right about this bill.

Arkansas retirement-board changes get Senate panel's approval February 17, 2017 at 7:43 a.m.

This is almost as bad an overreach by the legislature as SJR8. I say "almost" only because the judiciary is supposed to be constitutionally independent; APERS is not, but it's still unnecessary legislative meddling in the affairs of state government by targeting three well-known public servants for removal from its board for sheer pettiness.

Cotton raps House GOP tax plan; he fears double whammy of higher levies, prices for many February 16, 2017 at 5:52 p.m.

I'm no Tom Cotton fan (he can't early vote without his mama in tow, so I suspect she tells him how to vote), but it's a good thing Walmart is telling him how to vote here. Too bad they can't tell the STATE senators from Cotton's home turf (main sponsor from Russellville, co-sponsor represents Dardanelle & Yell County) to pull down the "bathroom bill"...

UA football opener in Little Rock now on a Thursday February 16, 2017 at 2:33 p.m.

Yeah, HawgFan; the one bit of news you provided was Mercer has replaced Chattanooga as Bama's pre-Iron Bowl patsy. But you pointed out why Arkansas' "no in-state schools" policy no longer makes sense: Back in John Barnhill's day it was to keep Henderson & Ouachita from aspiring to be the Hogs; that's no longer possible. Today it's a handout to the right patsies; why support New Mexico State instead of Arkansas State, or Coastal Carolina instead of UCA, or Florida A&M instead of UAPB?

Governor reiterates view that state doesn't need 'bathroom bill' February 16, 2017 at 2:21 p.m.

Being trans myself, I agree with both of you. What we need is a clear statement from one of our corporate giants, most likely Walmart: "If you pass this, we will move our headquarters out of Arkansas." We don't have NBA teams or regular NCAA tourney rounds to cry over like North Carolina, but we have businesses most of our GOP legislators will NOT want to see leave.

Arkansas man arrested after trying to meet with teen to have sex with her, authorities say February 15, 2017 at 10:40 p.m.

Sen. Greg Standridge's solution: Separate male & female chatrooms. Must present birth certificate with matching sex.

Razorbacks move football opener to Thursday night February 15, 2017 at 10:11 p.m.

Well, at least this time we picked an HBCU *not* in UAPB's conference. Still doesn't explain why we can't schedule ASU, UCA or UAPB. It's no longer 1945, Jeff Long!!!
