Make this an open line.
But note that this week's Arkansas Times is now on the web and you can click to any of the features I'll mention on the left rail.
COVER STORY: Bob Lancaster reviews 2006. Not exactly a fond farewell to The Huckster.
REPORTERS: How come they have to pay property tax on the Walton Fine Arts Center in Fayetteville, but not the new ballpark in NLR. Because the fix is always in in Pulaski County and you'll have to sue to get justice here. Which someone just might do. And speaking of justice, there's a noncommunicative new U.S. attorney in LR with some political hardball to hide. And speaking of questions, what about that promised pedestrian bridge at the Clinton Library? Will it ever happen?
INSIDER: The Binghams are out at the Governor's Mansion and booze is back.
And the proverbial lots more. Lancaster predictions. Sabin on biofuels and Arkansas's future. Dumas is still searching for a compassionate Republican.
