Arkansas Did-You-Know Fact of the week:
The state capitol building in Little Rock is an exact replica of the US Capitol building in Washington. A site called Arkansas Roadside Stories has a charming story about mistakes that were made while the building was being constructed, saying: "Opposition was fierce, the politicking was dirty, corruption was rife, essential technical expertise was missing and the project was canceled and resumed many times over, driving the cost up to 2.5 million dollars spent over sixteen years."
