Interesting race
March 28, 2003
In an election dominated by divisions, the Journal-World crosses the battle lines to support candidates for the Lawrence City Commission. Let’s say it out loud: This is not a particularly enticing group of candidates for City Commission.

Nevertheless, the community owes a sincere vote of thanks to each person who put his time, reputation and money into the process that will be culminated Tuesday.

At this rate, Chris Rock might never headline a good movie … unless it’s a concert film of his stand-up act. The talented comedian hasn’t yet found a way to translate his uproarious, stinging social commentary into a cinematic mouthpiece. It’s not that he’s gone out on a limb and failed, it’s that his aim has been so low to begin with.

Broad influence, intellect marked Moynihan
March 28, 2003
Many of America’s largest public careers have been those of presidents. Many, but by no means all. Chief Justice John Marshall was more consequential than all but two presidents — Washington and Lincoln. Among 20th-century public servants, Gen. George Marshall — whose many achievements included discerning the talents of a Col. Eisenhower — may have been second in importance only to Franklin Roosevelt. And no 20th-century public career was as many-faceted and involved so much prescience about as many matters as that of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who died Wednesday at 76.
