To the editor:
So, according to Gov. Brownback, closing the Lawrence SRS office is no big deal because “clients can always access needed services in the Topeka or Kansas City offices or by the Internet.” How?
Is the governor so far removed from reality that he doesn’t know that poor people generally cannot afford a car or, if so, the current gas prices? Poor people do not have Internet either. Asking our library and other overburdened offices to teach them how to use the Internet simply is inconsiderate at best. But our governor has an answer for all of this: “Let them eat cake.”
