Open (firing) line: Legislator proposes return to firing squad. Also more in NLR coach dispute

Here's the open line, video roundup and an additional legislative item:

* FIRING SQUAD: Rep. Rebecca Petty, who's already passed a bill expanding the number of family members who can witness an execution (her daughter was a murder victim), tells AP she will introduce legislation to seek alternative methods of execution, including firing squads. Legal challenges have delayed use of lethal injection.  It was filed today, in shell form. No word if beheadings will be considered.

* NEW TERMINATION LETTER IN NLR: KTHV appears to have the jump on the new termination letter from the North Little Rock School District to football coach Brad Bolding. An appeal hearings was scheduled today. It was canceled because the district wanted to send a new termination letter with expanded justification for the firing. Bolding's attorney calls it "outrageous." And old news. The letter gets specific about purchasing practices said to run counter to district rules.
