Response to question everything (Reply #11)

13. It's "Arkansans" (or "Arkansawers" used by some old folk)

And I remember the controversy nationally when Gov. Clinton left the campaign trail in January 1992 to come back here to ensure Ricky Ray Rector's execution went off as scheduled. But Clinton had to show, contra the image of Michael Dukakis four years earlier, that he was just as tough on crime as any Republican.

(On edit: Corrected error about why Clinton returned to Arkansas for Rector's execution)
