Arkansas as a travel destination?  It's not the Grand Canyon, but it does have its charms.  In Little Rock, the state capitol was designed, in part, by Cass Gilbert, who as every Minnesotan knows also designed the capitol in St. Paul.  The two buildings have much in common, although the Arkansas version lacks the ornate details of its northern sibling.  Some views:

The capitol as seen from the south side.  The sculpture honors students who integrated Little Rock High in 1957.

One has to look closely to see that this is not in St. Paul.
And this is not Governor Jessie Ventura.
