Two From Tolbert

Blogger Jason Tolbert has a lot of good stuff on his site. I noticed from today on his site that Lincoln wants more debates, while Boozman wants to stick to the current three. Proof positive that Lincoln is in trouble. Still, we are ALL in trouble if we have to listen to more than three Boozman-Lincoln debates. It would be too painful listening to these two establishment players pretending that they had significant differences in the philosophy of government. There would be significant risk of mass fatalities due to over-exposure to boredom.

I am all aboard, and over a decade ahead of him, on his growing disenchantment with Florida resident Mike Huckabee.

I can't go along with his piece critical of the legislators for holding committee meetings in Fayetteville on the eve of Razorback games. That is happening this weekend.

So far I am in favor of scheduling meetings up here. There is a lot more to this state than Little Rock, and this practice makes it a lot easier for those of us from NWA to get in front of legislators. I plan to attend one of these meetings. If they are just going through the motions to get to a hog game, I'll let you know. If they are serious about getting information from citizens from other parts of the state, I'll let you know that too.

I'll be interested to hear how the committee goes. I've always thought it would be a good idea to get legislators out to other cities across the state. If they rotated cites that would be better. They could meet more of the average Arkansan and see the state. And the people would have a better chance of actually seeing the process.

More importantly, it would spread that per diem money around a little!

Legislators meeting in cities other than LR is not necessarily a bad thing - for the reasons mentioned, it gets the people closer to the process, spreads the per diem around, and last but not least, they can pick your pocket up close and in person.

I really appreciate the blog since the first time do I saw it. Now they have reached another milestone which lead us to report about it, and I think it's a great new... as the content of the text.
