There's Gene Lyons, writing about the Asian-ancestry NBA phenom Jeremy Lin.
There's Lindsey Millar's Media column on the Democrat-Gazette's bonkers vitriol about a center for veterans on Main Street and his more rational assessment of the good and bad about Main Street these days.
There's Cheree Franco's cover story on Jill "Republican" Dabbs, whose first year as mayor of Bryant has, if nothing else, jump-started all kinds of new Saline County news outlets on the web.
And there's The Observer, to which I want to call special attention. A friend and Arkansas Blog reader sent a note about her hospital vigil with her failing father in a hospital upstream from Little Rock. I think you'll like her story about The Hospital Dog.
