On Monday evening, at 7:25 p.m., Jack Jones was executed by lethal injection in Arkansas’s Cummins Unit. And just a few hours later, a second inmate, Marcel Williams, was put to death as well. Arkansas can now claim the grim distinction of carrying out the first double execution in the U.S. since 2000.
Arkansas’s horrific plan to execute eight men in two weeks met another roadblock Thursday night when the U.S. Supreme Court issued a temporary stay in the execution of Ledell Lee.

All of the topics we discuss on Big Time Dicks are disgusting in their blatant willingness to disregard other people’s humanity, especially if they are people of color or women.

Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that the state of Arkansas intends to execute eight incarcerated people over a span of 10 days in April.

Mike Huckabee is one of those people who, at one time, had a real job as Governor of Arkansas. These days, he doesn’t seem to have much to do, besides promote Donald Trump.

A former Arkansas county employee is being (unfairly in the opinion of this blog) prosecuted for her alleged use of a state credit card to buy a dog tuxedo. Kristi Lyn Goss is accused of buying between $160,000 and $200,000 worth of other stuff on that credit card that wasn’t hers. In her defense, though, the dog was…
A friend of Jezebel is home in Arkansas today, where, on a beautiful highway, she saw this, the most surprising decal endorsement of all time. I know people like to say “You won’t believe” or “You will be surprised” as a cheap click-procuring tactic, but really: You’ll be surprised.
