It’s been one thing after another, but this week I was finally able to record another appearance on AETN’s “Arkansas Week,” which you can catch at 8 p.m. tonight on your local Arkansas PBS station.
Host Steve Barnes, Rick Fahr of the Log Cabin Democrat in Conway and myself talk about today’s U.S. unemployment numbers, the economy, state tax collections for May, a challenger for U.S. Sen. Vic Snyder, Wal-Mart’s star-studded annual meeting today in Fayetteville, the city of Clinton suing Pilgrim’s Pride and the shooting of two Arkansas soldiers outside a west Little Rock military recruiting station.
That’s to say nothing of the search for an Arkansas lottery director, which — after we taped the show — came to fruition with the selection of Ernie Passailaigue of South Carolina as the state’s scratch-off czar.
It’s a full docket covering The Week That Was.
