Thursday open line



The line is open. Weird day because I was out of the news loop a big chunk of it. I spent three hours at Little Rock National Airport talking with Director Ron Mathieu. More on that later. Otherwise:

Huck sets up anti-abortion riff by noting "missing birth certifs," but crowd claps in expectation he's gonna hit O's birth certif

But, if you must. Hint: He won't be backing Rick Perry.

* DRINK UP: Drink specials all over town tonight, a promotion of Cocktail Compass, our iPhone app. Show your app (it's free) for the deals. You can point and shoot the linkup here plus check out the specials. Everything from a $1 PBR at Town Pump to a $4 strawberry lemonade at Cajun's to a buck off Peabody drinks to a $3.25 black-and-tan at Dugan's pub. And lots more.
