Loafers' wall, at courthouse, Batesville, Arkansas. Here from sun up until well into the night these fellows, young and old, "set". Once a few years ago a political situation was created when an attempt was made to remove the wall. It stays. When asked what they do there all day, one old fellow replied: "W-all we all just a 'set'; sometimes a few of 'em get up and move about to 'tother side when the sun gets too strong, the rest just 'sets'."
