The new Ark. Times is on the web. Among the items:
The cover story: LR native filmmaker Jeff Nichols and his acclaimed "Shotgun Stories," premiering here this week.
Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks is coming to town next week for a demonstration in behalf of the West Memphis Three. I heard today, too, that Larry King may bring his show here for the event. I'm sure THAT will move Mike Beebe.
Meet Chris Lemley, an Atkins native, who's a big name in professional video gaming.
Road trip: Some Arkansas Republicans are heading to Iowa to campaign AGAINST Mike Huckabee. John Williams' article includes quotes from former Huckabee staffers with bones to pick with the would-be president.
Ernie Dumas reviews a key frailty in the would-be president -- dishonesty.
Then there's Gauldin.
(Corrected version. Initial version said Dumond pardon, rather than parole.)
