This week in Arkantube

David Koon has begun a weekly project of rounding up video of interest to Arkansas on YouTube. Above, former Little Rock Mayor George Wimberly is interviewed for a UAMS project at his drugstore in Stifft Station, a popular gathering spot still for politicos to tell tall tales. He talks about growing up in the 1920s and if I hear George right, he says the economic situation today is worse than the Depression, when he joined the CCC.

Elsewhere on Arkantube:

Part 3 (Lobotomies on tour!):

A scary looking guy blazes away with two 9mm pistols while a cockney narrator looks on. Good shootin', gov'na!.
