Here's the open line, plus our daily news video. Also checking a story on Facebook from a young woman who says she was asked to leave Girls State because she posted an unflattering comment — "gross," was said to be the objectionable word — on Instagram about an Arkansas elected official. More if and when we can.
UPDATE: More re Girls State. the comment (about Attorney Leslie Rutledge during her speech) did stir some unhappy reaction from Girls State officials. But .... the post was made by a counselor, which does put her more squarely in the target of the bosses as an employee than a student merely exercising the 1st Amendment.
