Still time to buy tickets to Gov. Mike Beebe's second inaugural festivities next week. (But wait. Isn't the Democratic Party supposed to be spending money it received from Beebe campaign surplus on the inaugural? Why not do it Huey P. Long style? "Who gave a party at the Peabody Hotel? And invited the whole state down there for free? ...")
Anyway, this link will take you to details of the entertainment. A Johnny Cash tribute band at the bbq-catfish fry Monday night; a big band from the Arkansas Symphony, Lawrence Hamilton and Party Planet, a Memphis band, will appear at the inaugural ball Tuesday night.
