You do know that the Arkansas Times has a lively website that includes news and comment and fun stuff every day on our Arkansas (news), Rock Candy (entertainment), Eat Arkansas (food) and community blogs. Find them all at www.arktimes.com.
If you don't follow them, last week you missed some fierce
back and forth between our Lindsey Millar and David
Koon and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's Philip Martin over
Martin's kind review of “Love Guru,” which our critic, and many others,
deplored. You missed spicy commentary on our exclusive report on the city of Little
Rock's purchase of a flattering profile of Vice Mayor
Stacy Hurst in Soiree magazine. You missed the new work of culinary school grad
Jessica Kokinos-Havel on Eat Arkansas.
You missed exclusive reporting and photo coverage of Little
Rock lawyer Gary Barket's acquittal in Bermuda
on a gun charge.
Get the picture? Get on-line, too.

Capitol of Commerce and Government.'”
It should be “capital,” of course. And we'd prefer that they
make it “Arkansas's capital.”
