Kansas Board of Regents committee approves revised social media policy

The Regents have kowtowed to the legislature. Oops! Is this social media? Have I just violated the policy? Dang!

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.

Brownback signs Medicare, gun bills

Actually, it's easy to figure. Anything supported by the president with dark pigmentation and a foreign sounding name is a threat to our republic.

Jenkins: No immigration reform until White House or Senate changes hands

Their "distrust" of the president began well before the Affordable Care Act, in fact even before his first inauguration. It seems to be hard for our elected representatives to trust a darkly pigmented president with a foreign-sounding name. That doesn't speak well for our representatives and it doesn't speak well for the voters who elected them.

Higher ed social media policy rewrite gets warm reception from faculty and staff

But there's not been a policy for other "social media," e.g., water cooler chit chat, cocktail party patter, letters to the editor. The "policy" previously has been to act responsibly. Guth's "tweet" was neither irresponsible nor purporting to speak for the university. I object to the opinions some faculty members make in their letters to the editor, but they never claim to speak for KU so I don't object to their being published.
