* EMERGENCY LANDING: A Southwest Airlines flight from Dallas to Baltimore made an emergency stop in Little Rock this afternoon after a small fire in the cockpit. Crew used a hand extinguisher on the fire and the plane landed without incident.
* SENATOR NO, YOU'RE UP: Democratic leader Harry Reid has scheduled a vote on a disaster aid bill. Clean. No budget cutting first. Which side are you on, Sen. Boozman?
