Terror hypocrisy
April 7, 2002
To the editor: There is no difference between suicide bombings of the World Trade Center and suicide bombings of hotels and restaurants in Israel. The argument that Palestinians have some “legitimate grievance” that justifies terrorism implies that if bin Laden’s grievance is legitimate enough, then his actions are equally justified. No amount of “repression” justifies the wanton murder of civilians. It is morally repugnant to teach children to kill themselves in order to kill other children. It challenges the fundamental basis of ethical and civilized behavior.

April 7, 2002
IN 1977 - Lawrence voters strongly chose retention of the nonpartisan, non-geographical city manager-commission form of government over the political, geographical mayor-council form.

Barkley Clark, Ed Carter and Jack Rose were elected to seats on the Lawrence City Commission. Clark led with 5,311 votes; Carter had 4,709, and Rose had 4,471.

We have not seen a follow-up article, and we were wondering what ever happened to the missing piglets, or if they know?

The pigs were reported missing in February by Terri Schwager, who said they were taken from her farm in the 1800 section of North 1100 Road. Officers do not know what happened to the pigs and the owner has not reported that the pigs have been found, Lt. Kathy Tate said.
