"I'd like to offer my congratulations to Arkansas Week for
being around for 25 years and occasionally having me here
for roughly half of them. Just think, Arkansas Week has
been around longer than Mike Huckabee."
"For 25 years Arkansas Week is one of two things that has
kept me home on most Friday nights. The other was being
"Over the last quarter century the political conversations
have become increasingly confrontational and adverserial and
argumenative. I'm delighted that Arkansas Week has remained
true to it's commitment providing dispationate discussion
and analysis on Friday evenings, keeping us informed and
enlighted about our state and it's politics."
"Thanks to a quarter century of Arkansas Week covering the
excitment of Arkansas politics and business."

suspect. And it's been a great source of perspective on
Arkansas news and events."

perspective in the state. From the grid iron to the

of important information."

that's why I really appreciate Arkansas Week."

keeping Arkansans abreast of current events."
