Brownback, Kobach to launch Kansas Business Center

"So lets kick the Koch brothers and all their companies out of the state ...." I'm not sure whether to classify this statement as non sequitur or reductio ad absurdum, but in either case, it's not valid, just silly.

Budget chief: Kansas identifies $101 million in savings

" It also has lower-than-expected costs in state employees’ health plan...." The way I read this is that if something didn't cost as much as it was predicted to cost, then that is considered a savings. It's also difficult to understand how we know there have been savings in things that the state is in the process of doing. For example, the state is "standardizing computer systems." First, what does that mean specifically, and second, how can there have been savings when the standardization has not yet been completed and data collected for comparison? I don't know if my questions are due to lack of detail in reporting or in smoke and mirrors in Topeka.

Column: LHS administration should take mulligan, rehire coach Mike Lewis

I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I can see why a large high school would need an athletics director: football, basketball, track, soccer, cross country, wrestling, baseball (and probably other sports I'm not aware of); probably hundreds of kids participating, being transported to "away" events; budgets; liability issues; handling parents' concerns; fund raising; scheduling; gender equity issues; security for venues; coordination of volunteers. I don't think we should conflate the need or lack of it for the position with the specific issue of the coach's firing.
