The dog ate my development?

An extraordinarily kind reporter in the Northwest Arkansas Times today described the big empty field situated along Hill avenue and Sixth Street in Fayetteville as “an unfinished development.”

Well, yes. That’s what we used to tell our teachers when our home work wasn’t started yet; it was “unfinished.”

No, wait, it’s not unfinished - it’s not even begun yet!

Well, except for the really cool part. You know, telling all the poor folk that they had to move. That part got finished right on schedule.

And now we’re talking about having student housing on the site. Isn’t “student housing” just another way of saying over-priced?

Acambaro bust - who really benefits?

So really befits from the Acambaro raids but all the other restaurants in Northwest Arkansas that have been struggling in the poor economy? I thought the whole point of this program was to take dangerous criminals off the street?

For all too many folk, the fact that you aren’t American makes you dangerous.

Happy New Year - now can we have some news?

Watching Channel 5 (KFSM) on Friday, I learned the importance of not driving while drunk. But honestly, Channel 5, if I weren’t Diabetic, watching your all-too-terrible coverage during the holidays might be enough to drive me to drink.

Somewhere out there, actual news is happening. Something besides stories on gift cards and people taking stuff back to stores after Christmas.

The other stations aren’t much better, are they?

I await with unbridled excitement the annual story of the first baby born in 2008. I just hope that no one has the bad taste to be murdered that day. Imagine the dilemma in the newsroom - which story to go with first?

Only 23 more radiation treatments, and Tracy is through with her radiation treatments.  It really will be a Happy New Year.
