Kansas Legislature passes school finance bill; Brownback says he will sign it

Can we please dispense with the Twitter gibberish? We should require our representatives and reporters to write using complete words and even sentences and give them no attention if they don't. Harrumph.

Your Turn: Professors address guns, safety at KU

I'm sorry, Bob. If you had taken the time and attention to read the whole thing (not 25 words or fewer--by the way, I applaud your correct choice of "fewer" instead of "less"), you might have seen that what I was offering was a humble homage to Swift's "A Modest Proposal" (written way more than 15 years ago), which is a model of syllogistic reasoning with ample supporting argument and the bonus of the satirical use of reductio ad absurdum. It's logical, not hysterical, and can be logically refuted, but not with the kind of remarks you posted. Again, I realize that attention spans are short and twits like tweets. As Brian Wilson wrote, "I guess I just wasn't made for these times." Thanks at least for reading my 25 words or fewer. Cheers!

Your Turn: Professors address guns, safety at KU

Lawrence school board to vote on whether to purchase 5,000 iPads

The larger question is how this infusion of digital technology into education affects students' ability to communicate with others and develop empathy for others. I recommend Sherry Turkle's "Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age," reviewed here:

State senators introduce bill in attempt to permanently exempt universities from concealed carry law

I have sent a proposal to Senator Francisco which I think could be a win-win for our Second Amendment rights and our universities. It has a number of well-targeted bullet points, which I hope our legislature and university leaders find persuasive.
