Daily Flyer: Monday, Nov. 7

Local Notes

Over a dozen aftershocks were still shaking the region Sunday morning after a 5.6 magnitude earthquake took central Oklahoma by surprise Saturday night. Did you feel it?

The Razorbacks dropped from No. 7 to No. 8 in this week’s BCS rankings, despite beating the No. 9 South Carolina Gamecocks. Making sense of why the Hogs had to move to make room for Oregon is difficult. Then again, making any sense at all of the BCS has always seemed a bit futile.

This weekend, CBS “Sunday Morning” aired a report on Alice Walton and her Crystal Bridges museum which is set to open Friday in Bentonville. Walton doesn’t come across nearly as besieged as CBS’ Martha Teichner seems to suggest, but there is an odd atmosphere to the piece. It’s worth watching. (YouTube)

Happy Birthday!
