Doug Compton's latest project and the debate over downtown parking; high tech traffic solutions presented to City Hall

Find me a town the size of Lawrence anywhere that requires paid parking at night for similar parking and who has meter maids patrolling to make sure the parking is paid.

This isn't a very well thought out protest, David.

Kansas City man, 23, pleads not guilty to attempted first-degree murder, related charges

They will release the photos once the plea has been finalized or a trial begins. This is consistent with procedure.

One of five defendants in home-invasion robbery case rejects plea offer, will stand trial

No. It means he feels he can get better terms through trial than the DA was offering.

Kansas lawmakers nearing new deal with Uber

Fred, it's hard to have a conversation with someone who doesn't want the participants to "bring politics into it" when the article we're talking about centers around a decision made by our Governor and state lawmakers.

Kansas lawmakers nearing new deal with Uber

Fred, most Uber rides around a town the size of Lawrence are going to cost you less than $10. In NYC, getting around Manhattan the prices were $8-$12 one way in a luxury car with 40-something year old adult drivers dressed business casual or better.

The coupon was for "up to" $20 off. A good coupon for a ride to the airport I would suppose.

The Uber concept is a 21st century business. Taxi business hasn't changed much since the invention of the automobile. And, fewer drunk drivers on the road is always a good idea regardless of how it happens.

Should there be a level of responsibility spelled out? Sure. But not to the extent that the business can't operate.

I've used Uber in other states. The cars are nicer.... each time I was picked up in a luxury edition car I'd never be able to afford and the drivers were exceptionally polite. The product was far and away better than the taxi alternative. Fred, have you ever used Uber? When's the last time you used a cab?

An Uber ride to LaGuardia Airport in NYC recently quoted me $30, the alternative was $60 after tip. On a different trip I used Uber to and from a bar in Jacksonville, FL. The cost was less than $10 each way..... far better than the taxi alternative and far better than a DUI. I was being responsible and the option I chose was the best one availabe... how is any of that bad?

Scott and like minded people are one reason this state is made fun of on a global scale. And rightly so.

Citizens Review Boards are not new concepts, it wouldn't be precedent setting by a long shot.
