The GOP is crafting healthcare behind closed doors (using an almost all-male group) that will reduce the number insured by up to 23 million. The rich reap the tax cuts and many will lose coverage for pre-existing conditions.

Lying used to be the unacceptable exception to the rule. We also used to have an appreciation for the rule of law. Sadly, today we have the rule of lies, and it is acceptable.

Almost no public pools left. Oh, but I note the golf course nearby has dozens of shiny brand new golf carts, for rich people. And why should I expect any different?

We should widen the Arkansas River downtown and put some boat docks and pontoons on it.
