Other state entries have official birds, flowers, insects, amphibians, etc. There's a bit of work to be done here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:18, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
I noticed that the politics section mentions Arkansas' voter approved same-sex marriage initiative, in light of recent events, should Judge Piazza's ruling making Arkansas gthe 17th state with same-sex marriage be mentioned as well? Probably should if the ban is mentioned... think I will Roberticustalk 14:52, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
General Douglass MacArthur was only born in Arkansas (on a military base, were his father had a short assignment). On the other hand, General Wesley Clark was born in Chicago, but grew up in Arkansas. Clark is best listed as being "from" Arkansas, since that was where he was raised. MacArthur did not grow up there, was only born there and lived there for a very short time. Thus (although a great historic figure) MacArthur, wasn't really an Arkansan, except in name, while Wesley Clark, who wasn't born there, really is.
I take objection to the recent insertion of "whites" over European Americans in the demographics section. The term whites has little useful meaning in the context when the paragraph is specifically talking about particular ethnic groups from Europe. I suppose it's not a big deal, but it sounds too vague for that particular paragraph. I actually think the whole sentence might be worth removing as unhelpful or uninformative.
