I wish something could be done to get LR 2-3 games a year. I think leaving LR is a big mistake.

This is what happens when someone unqualified gets a powerful position. Now maybe the gov will put someone there who is qualified instead of being just one of his political buds.

As for the actions of Johnny Key, this is what you can expect when you put unqualified people in important jobs where they have to make influential decisions.

I love Stephanie Povey's letter. What a great laugh. Maybe it will shut up some of the male know-it-alls. Until you have stretch marks, you don't get a say.

To answer Lionel Copping's question, "where would human's be without beer?" -- We would have way less addictions and all the horrible baggage that brings with it. I personally would not have grown up with an alcoholic father with all the problems associated with that. In my family, we would have had more stability and far better living conditions if not for the existence of beer. We would have had so much less pain and doing without and heartache if there was no beer. I see nothing good about it. All it makes me think of is the pain and fear and sadness of growing up in an alcoholic's home.

All state agencies should function under state control, starting with Highway. And they ought to all pay the same wage for the same job. Some pay very low like DFA & some way high like Highway. It doesn't seem fair. Also, the same 2 jobs with the same duties at different agencies can be very different pay levels & titles. When I worked for the state my boss told me that the agency budget would never allow for anyone in my position to be paid anything more than I was making. I retired & now the person in my job less than 2 years is making more than twice what I made & I was there nearly 5 years. There is a lot of rotten stuff that goes on in state gov't.

These Republicans can't do something like this that makes so much sense. They're too busy trying pass legislation that says you have to friend your boss on FB. How foolish. I am retired now, but when I was working, I have my annoying, nosy, jerk of a boss blocked.

Tom Cotton is the most embarrassing thing to happen to AR since Wilbur Mills and Fanne Fox in the Tidal Basin. He is a glory hungry fool who cares nothing for AR except as a stepping stone to the White House.

In response to Thomas May's letter, I've been watching the situation with S Broadway for some time. If someone applies for a job in st gov't for which they're unqualified, they aren't even considered, as it should be. So how is that S Broadway gets a big cushy job for which he's completely unqualified when underlings at the same agency or any state agency can't do it? It is not fair. He's never done anything of any substance in his working life. He is all about himself. No one else.

This is interesting to me since this agency is so backward that the tests they give to prospective employees is with paper and pencil instead of on a PC. They are so behind the times, I question their competence in every area.
