Bar codes and tourists in Arkansas

Technology, a Natural for Arkansas Tourism http://m.apnews.com/ap/db_17208/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=pWCJgNtJ

Bar codes that help keep tourists informed in Arkansas? I was not aware that tourists went to Arkansas.

Ooooooooh! You bad boy, you!

I lived in Mountain View , in Searcy and in Hughes, Arkansas. It was said that tourists (they weren't called that when I lived there) made good fish baits, unless they came from Texas. Something to do with chili peppers, I think.

I interviewed years ago at the university there, not the one in Little Rock. I turned them down, but the area was quite lovely. Nothing at all like I expected of Arkansas.

Yeah, I was, and still am, feeling snarkier than usual. Someone could be in trouble.

They have two universities now?

The northwest corner of Arkansa is some of the most beautiful terrain in the US. At least, it was 50 years (jayzus, did I just type "50 years ago"?!?) when I lived there.

What's got your snark up and running today, friend?

This was the one in Fayetteville. Quite lovely, it was. The department was a bit marginalized in the school, and didn't much interest me after I saw it.

At this point, I'd entertain an appointment there, but I doubt they'd ever talk me, what with dumping them on the first date back in the mid-90s.

It doesn't take much to get my snark up these days, though I try to keep it at bay for those people who have to work with me. God figure.
