BITS & PIECES: Tuesday, May 31

Dear Texan motorists: if you’re going to fly past us on the straight-stretches, please be so kind as to drive the curvy Arkansas roads at a reasonable speed. We realize the landscape in The Natural State presents some challenges when it comes to driving our scenic highways, and we hope you enjoy the views. But if the curves are too much for you to handle, do us a solid and abide by the speed limit on the straighter sections of highway — that way we Arkansans won’t be forced to tailgate you in the curvy areas. Please and thank you.
