STAN THE MAN UNIFORM DISPLAYED AT CLINTON PRESIDENTIAL CENTER

Bill Clinton’s political successes may represent a high point for blue-voting states, but the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock is decked out in Cardinals red. Running through Sept. 16 is the Clinton Center’s Little Rock exhibit on the Cards, the former prez’s favorite baseball team. Today an iconic display joins the exhibition: the uniform worn by Stan Musial in his last Cardinals game back in 1963. Also on display is a bat that Stan The Man gave Clinton during a White House visit. Kurt Senn, the Clinton Center’s deputy director, tells the Arkansas Times the Clinton Foundation provided money to prepare Stan’s uniform for display. “We’re actually trying to preserve it as is,” he said. “They didn’t have it restored, they had it conserved.” Senn adds that the conservation process included stabilizing rips and holes in the vintage uniform so they didn’t get worse, but still showed young fans the wear and tear inflicted by a Man-ly athlete. The display includes a 2011 World Series ring and a jersey worn by Arkansas-born diamond-in-the-roughDizzy Dean. Arkansas has long been a Cardinals stronghold, and young Billy Clinton was an avid follower of the games while growing up in Hot Springs, between trips to Charles Cella’s Oaklawn thoroughbred track.

PRESIDENT OBAMA & ANN WAGNER ATTRACT STELLAR FIGURES

The Gay Men’s Chorus of L.A. will headline President Barrack Obama’s fundraiser on Monday at Los Angeles’ House of Blues. Others one the bill are former Prez Bill Clinton, B.o.B and Adam 12. In our town, former U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway has corralled her pal, Gov. of New Jersey and former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie to headline a fundraiser for Second Congressional Dist. candidate Ann Wagner on Sept. 27 at the Sheraton Clayton Plaza Ballroom. Other GOP boosters on the committee are Emmis Broadcasting’s John Beck and his wife, Lori, developer Chris Goodson, Ted Kienstra, Jr., Grant Williams and doyenne Virginia Weldon. The columnist has decided to stop voting. It’ll be great not to feel I’m responsible for what goes on in Washington.  As far as debates go, what if everyone believed what the candidates said about each other and no one won? Many politicians don’t believe a word they say and are surprised that we do. The people who don’t know why America is the Land of Promise should be here during the election campaigning. There’s news that Arnold Schwarzenegger is writing an autobiography, “Total Recall,” (Simon & Schuster) and is due out next year.That’s refreshing. There are politicians who left public life the hard way – they didn’t write a book.
