The Tuesday night line is open. Final notes:
* SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT SUSPENSION IN BRYANT: The Bryant School District issued a news release today that Superintendent Randy Rutherford had been placed on administrative leave for at least the next 30 days. No explanation given.
* LOOK WHO’S A LABOR BOSS: I’ve already said plenty about Asa Hutchinson’s smearing of school teachers — at least those who go to Arkansas Education Association conventions — for an endorsement of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Ross. In a news release, Hutchinson spoke derisively of labor unions and their “liberal” ideas. He commented:
Arkansas deserves better than Congressman Ross putting the interests of Nancy Pelosi, President Obama and union bosses ahead of Arkansas workers.”
I don’t happen to believe union membership makes you a bad person. Even union “bosses” have mothers. And, yes, even fathers. Take Asa’s youngest son, Seth, as shown on the website of the Texas State Employees Union, Communications Workers of American Local 6186:
Wrong Hutchinson running for governor.
* THE ARKANSAS LEGISLATURE IS WRAPPING IT UP: The Revenue Stabilization Act is whipping through the legislature today. Could the fun crowd could be gone soon.
