Antibiotics sometimes necessary for kittens
July 6, 2003
Recently, the host of my favorite morning radio show talked about his kitten. My kitten has the same problems, and I was wondering if you could help.

U.S. first responders woefully underfunded
July 6, 2003
We have been warned. Our country remains woefully unprepared to cope with another terrorist assault.

July 6, 2003
He’s as fit a 75-year-old as you might ever meet, with shoulders that still fill out his western-style shirt like those of the young cowboy he once was.

Police union, city at odds
City Commission will choose sides in benefits dispute
July 6, 2003
The union that represents Lawrence’s police officers says the city has more than enough money to keep insurance benefits at current levels. “Do I think the city can afford it?

City administrators say the union’s reasoning is based on audits done before the city’s current budget crunch, and on a misunderstanding of how the city can use money.

Cherchez de Gaulle — but not in France
July 6, 2003
And now, a few words from the man who best personifies the edgy quality of life in the dawn of the 21st century. My candidate for Mr. Zeitgeist is speaking about the United Nations: My country “will not at any price accept that a collection of states more or less totalitarian and professional at dictatorship, a collection of new states more or less responsible, more or less consistent, dictate its law to us. The United Nations is a derisory tribune for sensational speech-making, overbidding and the worst kind of threat-making.”

History in question
Book tells forgotten side of Kansas’ past
July 6, 2003
Rita Napier says Kansas history needs a major overhaul. So much of what’s been taught, she said, is either half-told or sugar-coated. And that’s not good, because history “is the yarn out of which we weave the fabric of the future.” Napier, an associate professor of history at Kansas University, has assembled a collection of essays in “Kansas and the West: New Perspectives,” a book that challenges many of the state’s most cherished notions about its past.

Author meanders around Chile in memoir
July 6, 2003
Isabel Allende has written a dizzying, contradictory, maddening memoir. One would expect nothing less from the author of such magic-realism masterpieces as “The House of the Spirits” and “Eva Luna.” And yet, “My Invented Country: A Nostalgic Journey Through Chile” is oddly hollow when compared to these works. The same background that served Allende so well in her fiction fails her in this autobiographical exploration.

Tigers’ win over Royals throwback
With 9-5 victory, Detroit now 1-7 against Royals
July 6, 2003
The Detroit Tigers did all the things good teams do. They got three home runs and some pretty good pitching, both from their starter and their bullpen.

Even more intimidating was seeing Annika Sorenstam post a 4-under 67, leaving her only two strokes behind.

Wartime presidents find strength spent, reputations marred
July 6, 2003
Call it the curse of the wartime president. Not a single U.S. president who has led the country into a major war has gone on to serve another full term in the White House.

Bush, who won a popular war but was unable to win over everyday Americans a second time.
