Ernest Dumas has done it again. He's explained an Arkansas policy issue -- the proposed severance tax increase -- so well that I don't want to wait until the print edition to share it.
Gov. Mike Beebe would do well to print this and distribute it to legislative holdouts to his modest severance tax increase proposal. And he might want to pass a few copies up to the shills at Walton U. who toady for the folks who pay them to do business analysis.
It's a no-brainer, to coin a phrase.
