Not angels of light

The Banditos and Hell’s Angels have rumbled in Arkansas’ most colorful city, Eureka Springs. The mystical mountain town is home of the Great Passion Play of Gerald L. K. Smith and thousands of hippy types left over from the 60’s.

They merrily roll out the carpet for all sorts of tourists. Eureka Springs is host to a huge UFO convention, so you know the locals are very open-minded. The town simply loves oddballs, even motorcycle gangs. If memory serves, the famous Harley riding outdoorsmen and women have come this way many times before without major incident.

Not too long ago, Arkansas welcomed the Rainbow Family, another bunch of delightful throwbacks. It’s all good clean fun, but somehow the Banditos have decided that Arkansas is their territory. I don’t recall an election, or even a call our survey. We should all be glad that motorcycle gangs feel at home here and spend their good money.

Except that there were some serious injuries, the fight in broad daylight on Sunday afternoon might have been entertaining. As it is, six Angels are in the Carroll County Jail, and several are hospitalized. Is this any way to spend your vacation, people? In the words of Rodney King, why can’t we all just get along?

Bandidos claiming Arkansas has nothing to do with non-motorcycle club (gang) members. You need not worry about what area so and so claim as their territory. The group of Bandidos that reside in this state don't look, work, earn, or pay any different than you and I.
