“Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.” — Thomas Jefferson

Follow Along

Though the legislature is typically in session for a just a couple of months each year, legislators meet frequently throughout the year. And just because we can’t pass legislation while we’re not in session doesn’t mean important decisions aren’t being made.

You can find the legislature’s schedule at www.arkleg.state.ar.us.

Take today as an example: the Senate Committee on Education and the House Committee on Education met jointly at the Capitol in Little Rock. You can find the agenda here (PDF).

And the Award for Today’s Most Unexpected Question Goes To…

"In your Instagram feed, you have a picture of a book titled Extraordinary Chickens. Where did you find that book?”

And We’re Back

I haven’t done much with Tumblr in months. Years, really. I first joined in 2007, but when I decided to run for office in 2009, I left behind my personal account and started this one. And while I used it extensively throughout that first campaign in 2010, I haven’t done much with it since (other than use it to share Instagram photos); however, there are 67 days to the election on November 4; I’m headed into what is almost certainly my last term in the Arkansas House; and I’ve found myself thinking more and more about two things:

  1. What have I done with the time I’ve served in office?
  2. What am I going to do with the time I have left?

And so here we go.
