Fall frenzy

The Parachute Inn at the Walnut Ridge Airport's Swindle Field is the featured topic in yet another publication. The Batesville Guard featured Donna Robertson, owner, and her 737 Southwest Jet airplane dining room on the front page of their Sept. 27 issue. The headline reads, "Plane good food!!" Robertson said this about receiving the airplane for use as a dining room: "It's been a blessing and a nightmare. I know some people think I'm just 'plane' crazy."


We have reached the high season for fall activities, festivals and events, all of which are worthy of news coverage. On top of this, the General Election on Nov. 7 is less than a month away with early and absentee voting starting around Oct. 23.

The pragmatics of politeness

When you think of manners you:

(A) Cringe at the thought of "all those rules."

(B) Find them unimportant, ineffectual and outdated.

(C) Regard them as pretentious and condescending.

(D) Don't think of them at all.

(E) Think of respect, courtesy and empowerment.

If you answered E, you understand the pragmatics of politeness.
