Ex-FBI deputy director 'disappointed' in Comey comments April 20, 2018 at 10:38 a.m.

Comey allowed politics to cloud his judgement and destroyed the image of the FBI. Now he's whoring his book, which I'm convinced he wrote to get back into the good graces with his wife who must be devastated that her girl Hillary lost, like so many women are today.
There ought to be a law which says that anyone working in Washington for the government in an appointed or elected office can't write a book and enrich themselves with stories that are half-truths, or damn lies.

Little Rock teen who disrupted court sent to adult jail a week; punishment said to possibly break law April 20, 2018 at 10:26 a.m.

Griffin is not one of my favorites, but......if he sent this punk to real jail with the big boys, then KUDOS. Maybe 30 days of watching your back side will put some respect for authority and FEAR in his mind. Being soft hasn't got us anywhere.

I'm betting you don't know me. I was raised in the "hood" that was east of I-40 before it was I-40. I spent more years living and working in this area than you've been alive. Most of my neighbors fought to get out of that area. It became a cesspool. Granted, there is a concerted effort today to "revitalize" that area. Unfortunately, it's the myopic focus of city government leaders, the chamber, and the convention bureau. There are 7 wards in this city, and one really mess of a school district that could use more focus from the city movers and shaker. The population is 46.9% white making this city a minority majority. The cities Williams cited were mostly controlled by liberal democrats, not saying that's the only reason they lost population. Williams' article was about cities losing population, so why would he mention any city experiencing growth?

Little Rock is another city you can add to William's list. Although our population is not in the negative column, we have the same perfect storm. A city with minority majority and large "retiree", poor, and homeless population.
Unfortunately, all our city's "revitalization" is concentrated on a few square blocks downtown near the Clinton city "park".

Advice for Little Rock candidates: Raise funds April 18, 2018 at 12:51 p.m.

I'm tired of this word game being played. Everyone knows that Warwick Sabin is running for mayor. It's real bulls**t to think he's just "exploring" the possibility. Hell, he's even soliciting money from some of my family who are North Little Rock residents. And what do we expect to get if he's elected? More of the same. We don't need both a mayor and city manager/directors government. But then, Little Rock has one mess of a city government with three at-large directors who are there to keep minorities from controlling the board. As to the mayor position, once ceremonial and elected by the board of directors, now a very high paying job with symbolism over any real substance. So let everyone raise money NOW.

BRUMMETT ONLINE: Good intentions, bad results April 18, 2018 at 11:36 a.m.

So here's my take. Comey stated the obvious facts about Hillary, and got sent to the couch by his wife who was one of those Hillary supporting women. Comey wanted to get back into his marital bed, so he tried to recover with a series of double speak comments. That failed and the glass ceiling came crashing down.To appease the Mrs. Comey wrote this book demonizing Trump.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Just follow the money April 17, 2018 at 10:49 a.m.

In a society where we are all pill happy..there seems to be one for everything from head to toe, is it any wonder that we have abuse. Add to that, most patients have to rent a meeting room at the Hilton to fit in all the doctors treating them. And EMR's electronic medical records are more a concept than a working reality. It makes for a perfect storm. Don't expect your doctor to fully understand how many of your drugs interact, or to know exactly what other drugs you are taking...

Arkansas judge rejects law to let dog comfort witnesses April 17, 2018 at 10:10 a.m.

As someone whose family member is allergic to dogs and once almost died after being exposed on an airline flight , this is finally something from the mouth of Griffen I can agree with. I feel that this "service dog" concept is just another way cheap ass people avoid paying extra for having pets on planes, in hotel rooms, restaurants etc. Visually impaired folks are the only ones I support.

JOHN BRUMMETT: To be admired and feared April 17, 2018 at 9:48 a.m.

In Brummett's own words:In the 1990s in this same 2nd District, the local Democratic Party tended to favor a perfectly fine candidate who'd come up through its Young Democrat ranks--Mark Stodola, now mayor of Little Rock. But it turned out that a doctor with a law degree who was a Marine veteran of Vietnam and exuded personal integrity--Vic Snyder--was better at getting regular people to develop spontaneous admiration for him and vote for him.
Tucker's political path is very much like Mark Stodola. A lawyer, career Democrat who has spent his time coming up the ranks. He's from a politically connected family with ties to the elite sector of Little Rock.
Since the 1990's population growth has been stagnant in Pulaski county while the surrounding counties have double digit growth. And those folks vote. Look at the last two "politically connected" democrat candidates who ran against French Hill. While they can carry Pulaski county due to the yellow dog democrats living there, they got their ass handed to them in the counties where education, quality of life, and schools were their priorities.
Democrats and wishful thinkers posting here had better pay attention.
There is at least one of the democrat candidates that places people over party and his name is not TUCKER. He's not like Tucker who is looking to follow in the footsteps of other democrat who used a political office as a stepping stone to bigger and better. Sadly, he has little change of getting the nomination.

Oaklawn's season sets with impressive Moon April 15, 2018 at 2:51 p.m.

The way Moon drifted down the stretch doesn't warm me to his chances in the Kentucky Derby. That move, and the curse of Apollo will do him in.
For once, I would like to see THE TRAINER show up for this $1,000,000 race. It's not like there were other important races being run Saturday. Screw Pletcher.
