The line is open. Finishing up:
* JOHN L. SMITH STILL GOING BOWLING: The embattled Razorback head coach spoke to the Little Rock Touchdown Club today. He got Arkansas confused with Alabama in his remarks, but, hey, it's been a tough season. He's not ready to give up on a bowl game for the Hogs. AP reports. Also, Fox 16 has video. At the 3:13 mark, Smith sounds as if he recognizes he's not likely to be around another year.
* DIM SUM TO GO: ConAgra Foods announced today that it would spend $100 million and add 80 jobs at its Russellville plant to begin producing Bertolli and P.F. Chang frozen meals. It already makes Marie Callender, Healthy Choice and Banquet meals.
* FOR A GOOD TIME .... But whatever you do, ladies, don't mention to this guy how much you admire Abraham Lincoln.
