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.

Lawmakers, frustrated by failure of tax bill, mulling what to do next

I think it's time for President Obama to declare martial law in Kansas and deploy the United Nations troops that have been covertly sequestered in abandoned Texas Wal-Marts. Between UN troops and an armed militia comprising the legions of fraudulent voters we've heard about, order could be restored in no time.

Sight of gun at Lawrence Taco Bell spooked someone Monday night, but officers determine no crime occurred

Hey, he was just part of our "well-regulated militia."

Kansas City Democrat target of GOP complaint for remarks on immigrant tuition measure

It's a general rather than specific term (although arguably "racist" is a meaningless term as there is no such thing as race). It's a fear or hatred of "the other," the "not me." In it, there's an assumption that the speaker is a part of a select or privileged group. (I guess it's weirdly reassuring to know that lack of eloquence isn't limited to one party or the other, as we clearly get preposterous and inflammatory pronouncements from both sides of the aisle.)

Kansas City Democrat target of GOP complaint for remarks on immigrant tuition measure

Arguably the bill is xenophobic, not "racist," but I suppose it's senseless to put too fine a point on any legislative colloquy that occurs in Kansas.

Kansas public unions oppose collective bargaining bill

Sadly, most voters seem to prefer to believe what they want to believe. Facts are just pesky gnats to be swatted. But yes, bravo to those who testified either by their words or their presence.

KU sees slight enrollment increase for 2014-2015

Missing from the KU numbers is the Edwards Campus (unless it's been rolled into the Lawrence numbers). Might be interesting to see how KU's Metro KC campus is doing.
