Lawrence City Commission to decide on Kasold Drive reconstruction design

Fred, stop with the idea that roundabouts are "European Fads". Jesus your bs gets old.

I've been driving in Europe on roundabouts for over a decade now... I did the same this morning. Guess what? They work. No one died!

Roundabouts don't work because of the idiots that haven't taken the time to figure them out. Hopefully they are teaching kids in drivers ed the proper way to negotiate the roundabout.

It seems at that all the old crusty ********* are to damn hard headed to bother.

Lawrence Humane Society plans for construction of new animal shelter

David likes to make gross assumptions Kristine. It's what he does. He also like to ask himself questions he can't answer. He lives in the world of the supposition and the hypothetical with a dash of assumption and hyperbole for good measure.

Don't let him get under your skin.

I miss the days when David was running for all the open seats in Lawrence at the same time.

Capital city begs to differ with Commissioner Matthew Herbert's Topeka bashing; Herbert apologizes

I came across this quote from a friend of a friend who lives in Topeka...

"The lesson to learn here is that if your city denies a budget for the arts and for making the city aesthetically pleasing, like Topeka (did), then people will hate living and investing there.

Eventually things will get so bad that privately and publicly funded fixes for the eye sores that have become large swaths of town will have to be created. When you consider the human capital and dollars lost in the intervening years, in addition to the costly fixes it seems like the people of Lawrence don't deserve to learn the lesson the people of Topeka ... have had to learn the hard way.

Way to go Councilman Herbert for trying to protect your city in the short and long term!"

Capital city begs to differ with Commissioner Matthew Herbert's Topeka bashing; Herbert apologizes

Hey, if the shoe fits, right?

I stand with Matt, Topeka may be trying.... but it's still Topeka and it deserves his comments.

Don't turn Lawrence into a barren wasteland where the arts are concerned.

Brownback signs bill imposing more Kansas welfare restrictions

No. Tim hit the nail on the head.

This is not to say that you're view isn't different, because it obviously is. But THEY think they're doing the right thing, which is what I think Tim was expressing.

Sorry Kathleen.
