Fight Night: Gov. Mike Beebe expects “huge fight” on cigarette tax hike.

    So, when I get irritated at my cats can I still tie their tails together?

    And D., why are you ordering pay-per-view?? We know you have internet access. I never have understood those who pay for porn in this day and age.

    Who said anything about porn? I didn’t want her to know that I watched “The Notebook” eight times. Oh, I can’t help it, they love each other so much, it just makes me cry!

    I’m sure glad nobody reads these comments. My secret is safe.
    D.

    P.S. There’s pornography on the Internet? Why was I not informed?

    Yeah, making animal cruelty a felony should be a high priority for our esteemed lawmakers, but keeping wife-beating as a misdemeanor seems about right. Meanwhile, our school children continue to perform dismally against other developed nations. Further, the ADG had a story this morning re: the state employees making $100K+, with UA Coach Petrino topping the list at nearly a cool $3 million. Football vs. academics? Hmmmm . . . I wonder where our priorities lie. Heaven forbid Arkansas legislators should try to move Arkansas up to #49.
