In 2006, during a Razorbacks game at War Memorial stadium, someone came to town to speak on behalf of then-gubernatorial candidate Mike Beebe. The picture caputures about the entire crowd- everyone else in LR was watching or attending the game. He spoke at the state capitol, a building which was designed for Helena, MT, but which ended up in Little Rock. It’s quite lovely, stripped-down neoclassicism. If you’re into that thing.

I got close enough to the speaker after his speech to actually shake his hand and throw a few words at him. Probably doesn’t remember me. That was the same year I met Howard Dean in Chicago.
