Kansas regulation of massage industry might help prevent sex crimes, some leaders say

What if we also tried regulating prostitution, so that you could go to a licensed facility to get a happy ending; everyone knows that's what they're there for, and everyone's passed their material handling safety course. That way, we kill a few birds with the same stone.

Kansas lawmakers poised to consider fantasy sports measure

clearly they'll need to find a way to tax it, one way or another. if it's a lottery, the state will want to host it, and take a cut. If it requires skill, then it's a job, and the state will want to take a cut.

See if your neighborhood is included in $130K worth of sidewalk repairs; meeting about fantasy city government set; city to seek budget comments tonight

Overland Park approves 165-mile bicycle network

Lawrence could use a major bicycle and pedestrian path improvement plan. Bicycles are not welcome on the roads or sidewalks; not that either of those are ideal; the edges and gutters of our streets are strewn with potholes; the sidewalks are in disrepair or non-existent. Dedicated pathways, and riding lanes are necessary.
