Roby Brock's blog is currently leading with a good analysis of what Mike Beebe omitted from his first State of the State speech.
Missing? Highway program, ethics reform and health care, to name three biggies. Add that to higher education spending, an omission noted yesterday by Sen. Jim Argue.
Roby also covers some extended remarks by Scott Ford on Alltel's future. The tea leaves are murky, it seems. All options on the table, naturally.
