I'm slipping out early and leaving you with an OPEN LINE.

On my way out the door, some reading recommendations:

Chris Bahn at Arkansas Sports 360.com has written a nice tribute to the late novelist E. Lynn Harris, who died last week. It talks about Harris' devotion to the UA cheerleading squad, on which Harris was the first black to serve. In case you missed it , former Arkansan Rashod Ollison, a Baltimore journalist, also reviewed Harris' life in this week's Times.

RETIRED: B.J. Sams with Alyson Courtney and Tom Brannon.

Kat Robinson, our tireless Eat Arkansas blogger and Eat Arkansas Twitterer reports a fond farewell was held today for her former co-worker B.J. Sams, who retired today at KTHV after 56 years in the business, most recently as popular morning show host. (Did they have TV 56 years ago?)

Finally, newly minted PR man Rex Nelson is spinning a Southern Fried yarn every day at his new blog and he thinks this one might be worth a debate and continuing discussion: He says it's vital that the University of Arkansas continue to play football games at War Memorial Stadium. (Does anybody besides me and Frank Broyles think a college ought to play its home games where the players go to class? Yes, I know what happened to Frank Broyles.)
