On Tuesday, Bryant Middle School was evacuated after a bomb threat was posted on the wall of a boys' bathroom stall. Bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in from the Little Rock Air Force Base and while no bomb was found on the premises, a student did confess to posting the threat.
There was some criticism by other journalists of the Courier staff for covering the bomb threat and one individual stated, "Maybe there wouldn't be so many bomb threats if the media stopped covering the bomb threats. Just saying."

Political pundits and candidates have often spoken of the "definition of insanity" as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." Mostly, the words are used to place an opponent in an unfavorable light. However, I feel it is a better description to what we are as voters.
We fall for the same tired slogans. We believe a candidate is going to "fight for us" or "protect seniors" or "stand for veterans." Each time we believe and each time we are let down.
A lot of people in my acquaintance gave up certain things for Lent this year.
One friend focused on sugar. That's admirable and healthy besides. What happens after Easter is anyone's guess.
A relative periodically forgoes soft drinks during this period leading up to Easter. Every year she says she won't resume drinking them, but so far this hasn't held true.
Still, she makes a valiant effort for the 40 days. That's certainly more than I can boast of for even a single day.
I don't drink coffee. I don't drink alcohol. But I do drink caffeine-laden diet drinks.
