Visionary plan

What is the estimated total market ($) for 'historical tourism' and how much of this market is 'the plan' expected to capture and how much will it cost? Or is 'the plan' to roll the dice with taxpayer money?

States' rights issue

"You don't even have to go to pro-marijuana websites. Look it up in medical journals."

Ragingbear: Your argument would be more effective (affective?) if you posted a few sample references to said journals or authors that have published the sort of research you mention, or at the very least, links to the publishers' own local search engines. Otherwise your seemingly informed and intelligent post is about as superficial and useful as a typical ljworld article.

Of course, most journal access requires an expensive subscription or a trip (ha!) to a university library.

Raising the bar on downtown safety: City, business owners discuss dangers

so try a 4am closing time i.e. *voluntary* staggered closing times.

not all the bars will stay open that late because not every drinker wants to stay up much beyond 2am anyway and bars only stay open if they're making money. not all bars that are open at midnight are open at 2am, and not all bars open at 2am will be open at 4am.

but I digress, how many police officers does a dozen new roundabouts and a new city library buy? and what's this about taxpayer responsibility? maybe the salaries of the city manager and city commissioners should be doubled so those jobs will attract better qualified candidates.

Think about your drink

>Ann Chapman recently was at the home of a relative who was serving Diet Coke Plus ...
>Chapman had no trouble telling her host what she thought of the product.
>"It's just bogus as far as I'm concerned," she says.

wow Wow WOW! Midwestern hospitality must not be trademark of Midwestern guests -- her and her opinion must be a blast at parties. Maybe next time somebody can serve nutri-Ann an antique can of New Coke...

Would you rank Lawrence as one of the 100 best U.S. cities to live in?

Whoever said they'd rather live in Fairbanks (or other northwest city) over Lawrence is out of their mind.

Extraordinarily dirty hippies that poop in buckets and occasionally shower at the laundromat or university. Fleets of pickup trucks with gun racks. Biblical swarms of yellow jackets and mosquitoes in the summer. Forrest fires that make LA air the gold standard of clear. City-wide fogs of frozen car exhaust and wood-stove smoke in the winter. Frostbite in minutes. Capped drug dealers that die from the cold before bleeding to death from their gunshot wounds. A downtown that looks like a transplanted Soviet gulag. $4 a gallon milk. Chronic sleep disorders. Mass seasonal bi-polar moodiness.

Makes life interesting for residents and visitors alike tho.

KU again going after ticket scalpers

Nothing to see here, let's move on.

KU is selling Jayhawks tickets for less than the market price. And by market-price, I mean the price that enough people are willing to pay to fill up the Phog. Unless KU raises the price of the tickets, takes drastic un-American action against the scalp-ees i.e. dedicated fans that don't want to go to every game or camp out, adds game-seats, or reduces the number of reserved season tickets, scalping will probably continue to be "a problem." Any resources spent combating it will be a waste of time/money.
