Backbone lost

May 10, 2009


To the editor:

It looks like Kansas leadership is suddenly in need of more backbone.

I think Gov. Parkinson’s capitulation to the coal interests shows just how much backbone left Kansas when Gov. Sebelius went to Washington, D.C., to take on heavier work.

Or could it be that Sebelius was just grandstanding to get a job in DC?

But it still should have been a nuclear plant instead of coal.

Umm, newsflash, Pilgrim-- Sebelius's actions were every bit as constitutional as any actions by this legislature.

No, it's a problem with your writing ability (to say the least.)

I think that it showed a lot of backbone to reach a compromise for the plant. Just because someone disagrees with your point of view....doesn't mean that they lack backbone.

The new coal plant will be built with Kathy's $7,000 in back taxes that she had to cough up before moving to Washington.

Backbone? Remember how she told us that she wasn't interested in a Cabinet position because she was committed to the people of Kansas?

I guess she did have the backbone to sell you out.
