The following letter to the editor, titled “Crooked stuff”, appeared in the Sunday, October 23, 2017 edition of the Sentinel Record. It’s typical codswallop from exalted sister Mary Robinson (bless her heart), so no further introduction is necessary. The photographs that follow represent about a minute of Google searching…

When someone is lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff and you know they’re lying and doing a … [more]

Hot Springs, Arkansas, with its deep lakes and “sin city” notoriety, is the unnatural habitat of shallow-thinking, obsessive letter writers (I’d throw in fundamentalist, too, but that would just be piling on tautological tomfoolery). Little brother Lloyd Hoffman (endlessly quoting Billy’s boy Franklin Graham) and little sister Mary Robinson (oy vey! will she stop already with her “America, bless God” adieus?!) are just two that come to mind…
My latest response to these clannish brethren, these self-righteous christianists trying … [more]

Well, folks, this is what we’re dealing with… Once again, with feeling (feeling nauseous), here is another visitation by something even scarier than a Stephen King clown, the one, the only (if only) Lloyd Hoffman. This unabashed adoration of Donald Trump was in today’s Sentinel Record. If Jesus still weeps, I know he has to be weeping now.

Following is a letter to the editor, from yesterday’s Sentinel Record, that well illustrates everything wrong with our American government (you know, by the people, for the people, etc., etc.)…
Apparently our thrice-named scion of local fame and fortune is irritated that “his” bought-and-paid-for” US Senators are not performing to his satisfaction.

Why We Are on Hunger Strike in Israel’s Prisons
By Marwan_Barghouti, April 16, 2017
HADARIM PRISON, Israel — Having spent the last 15 years in an Israeli prison, I have been both a witness to and a victim of Israel’s illegal system of mass arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners. After exhausting all other options, I decided there was no choice but to resist these abuses by going on a hunger strike.
Some 1,000 Palestinian prisoners have … [more]

Alas, it seems our local newspaper, the Sentinel Record, is determined to make Hot Springs known more for its wingnut provincials than as an international tourist trap. The following article was front-page, above the fold, in today’s Sunday edition. Read it and weep. These people really believe that Trump and Jesus are two sides of the same coin of the realm, the so-fantastic and amazing mammon that will make America great “again”…
But maybe, just maybe, there’s a silver … [more]

Hot Springs history is rich with characters profane and sanctimonious. These days, our quirky burg seems inundated with the latter, a roused rabble of “evangelical bloc” letter writers who darken these pages almost daily with religious rants more emetic than evangelistic.
One of the most prolific and pious of these scribes usually just stitches together random quotes from Billy’s boy, the oh-so very reverend Franklin Graham. But then last month he went much further, beyond mere repetitions … [more]
