- December 1, 2015
- Some Lawrence city commissioners have expressed opposition to the use of tax incentives for residential projects, but it will be difficult for commissioners to turn down such a request for a redevelopment project at the former Pachamama’s restaurant without leaving itself open to criticism for being inconsistent or unfriendly to business.

- Saturday Column: KU should set example in addressing diversity issues
- Years from now, maybe sooner, the current environment on American university campuses may be identified or referred to as the “period of demands” or “the ugly years.” On campus after campus, charges of racism, demands for “inclusion and belonging” training, demands for individuals to resign immediately or face impeachment, charges of discrimination and unfair treatment, votes of “no-confidence” in university administrators and elected student leaders, threats by university athletes to refuse to participate in team activities, sit-ins and takeovers of chancellor’s offices and other tactics are being used to try to bring about major changes in traditional values and policies at U.S. universities.

- Opinion: Trump may be wake-up call for nation
- Even by his standards, it was an astounding performance. Over the course of just two days last weekend, Donald Trump spewed bigotry, venom and absurdity like a sewer pipe, spewed it with such utter disregard for decency and factuality that it was difficult to know what to criticize first.
- Opinion: U.S. must curb administrative state
- As the administrative state distorts America’s constitutional architecture, Clarence Thomas becomes America’s indispensable constitutionalist. Now in his 25th year on the Supreme Court, he is urging the judicial branch to limit the legislative branch’s practice of delegating its power to the executive branch.
