Some babies are going to be saved. How could that ever be a bad thing? A fascist thing? Never. Its called ending a terrible kind of violence.

Brownback, Davis discuss gay marriage at Kansas gubernatorial debate

Davis does not want to lead. He simply wants to be governor. If he wanted to lead he would not let the court system be the controlling branch of government. Why elect a man governor who is unwilling to support 70% of its citizens?

Lawrence congregations gather to mourn events in Ferguson

Racism is wrong. Period. Acts 17:26 makes this clear. All mankind is of one blood and made by God. We did not evolve. Our public schools teach our children that we are all the products of time and chance. Evolution is so very wrong. We are all made in the image of God. And in that image is all the dignity and beauty of our Maker. Anyone who using scripture or evolution to defend racism, for example the KKK and other supremacist groups, are manipulators, liars and very, very wrong. However, as Christians, desiring to be faithful to Jesus, who on one occasion did urge His followers to carry a sword for self-defense (Luke 22:36), there has to be a much better way of wrestling through and reversing the plague of racism than calling a policeman, who was protecting himself in the line of duty, a racist.

Planning Commission recommends denial of major shopping center along SLT

Higher paying jobs come when entrepreneurs are given the liberty to be entrepreneurs. Higher paying jobs have never and will never come from the socialistic orientations found in today's left-leaning political climate. Selfishness on the right is not good either, but please give those who are willing to risk dollars in business development a chance!

Planning Commission recommends denial of major shopping center along SLT

Higher property taxes will be the result of saying no to more retail development. Insane. Seriously insane. But insanity is what make living in Lawrence so much fun.

Davis proposes postponing future Kansas tax cuts

Go ahead, vote for someone who thinks governments can bring prosperity. Things don't work that way. Never have. Wealth and economic growth always come from the private sector. Unfortunately, growth from the private sector is never pretty. I worry about politicians who want to keep more money in the hands of government. Paul Davis is that kind of politician.

Lawhorn's Lawrence: When the Kansas River was home to kings

Great work Barb! I used to work as a dark-water diver on the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers. The heritage of all the ole' "river kings" and the industry built around their dangerous work is one that has been long overlooked. I worked in sightless conditions and on occasion I would feel something push or bump me. On the surface the old "river kings" (fisherman or mussel collectors) would say, "Yep there are some man-sized cats down in those holes!"
