The line is open. Final item:

* RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS: I’ve been lightly razzing 4th District Republican congressional candidate Tom Cotton for his lack of Arkansas residency in recent years, though he’s now ensconced in a family home in downtown Dardanelle. So how come, someone asks, I haven’t wondered where another Repub candidate, Beth Anne Rankin, calls home. Still living in her parents’ house in Magnolia? I’ve asked, but haven’t gotten a response. No problem with back-to-the-nesters, it’s just that in this case home is government-subsidized housing, since her dad is head of Southern Arkansas University. Anybody know?

UPDATE: Rankin e-mails me that she’s living on the Rankin family farm in Magnolia.
