Good stuff. If you haven't read their +The Atlantic article, it's worth your time 
It’s called flyover country -- low-profile parts of the U.S. the news media often forgets. But to husband-and-wife journalists James and Deborah Fallows, these areas are home to ‘cities that work,’ thriving communities that buck this election’s narrative of national pessimism. As part of a collaboration between The Atlantic and the PBS NewsHour, Judy Woodruff joins the couple to learn more.

This is terrific #LittleRock   #highways   #nonewroads  
Please pardon my passion. I care. I cannot help myself. I invest. I rebuild. I take places broken by desire for exclusion, and set them right.

The Arkansas School for the Deaf‘s team mascot has been the Leopards since 1941, though the members of British rock band Def Leppard were probably unaware of the school’s existence when they formed in 1977. The band’s name was originally “Deaf Leopard.” Influenced by the name “Led Zeppelin,” it was changed to “Def Leppard”—the original spelling seemed too “punk sounding.” Flashing forward to present day, photos of the Arkansas School For the D...
