State Rep. Peck takes on critics in debate over university professor columns

Peck has a great sense of humor, what are you talking about? His jape about shooting illegal aliens from a helicopter was a great knee-slapper.

State Rep. Peck takes on critics in debate over university professor columns

Nice to know Virgil Peck is above name calling. One thing that I, and many others, would like to know... Rep. Peck is making huge decisions regarding the needs of higher education in Kansas, and seems to be put-off by people that have earned advanced degrees. What is Rep. Peck's educational background? It strikes me as odd that someone in such a powerful position, and apparently quite critical of "fruitcakes", might not have some sort of post-secondary education. Can we get an answer to this? Actually, as part of a grand jury might be even better.

Budget panel rejects 'absurd' KU requests for enhancement funding

Checked Virgil Peck's bio. He doesn't list anything regarding high school or even post-secondary education. I am not surprised by this. I think this is also one of the legislators that favored university professors not stating their positions or educational credentials when they make editorial contributions to newspapers. Might this be due to feelings of inadequacy? Might we find a shiny sports car in his parking space in Topeka?

Opinion: Tax policies damage Kansas

Bart, you solved nothing, but you did exercise your right to free speech. That's important, as it gives the rest of us guidance as to whom to take seriously. If you have kids in Kansas public schools, then you have a clear understanding of the problem. If you have read the Constitution of the State of Kansas, you know that the state has a legal responsibility to provide adequate funding to public education. Privatization of public education has been attempted to a degree, if you're familiar with the Edison Project in Wichita. You might also be aware that it was an abject failure in Wichita as well as some other communities. Please continue to voice your opinion, and remind us of proposed alternatives, completely thought through and otherwise.

Seeking to prevent divorce, Kansas legislators hold 2 days of hearings on marriage

Of all the problems facing our state, poor economic growth, decimation of our public school system, eroding confidence in our state leaders... and this is their highest priority? Who elected these fools?

KU, students answer lawsuit by business school teacher formerly employed by Koch

As a 20+ year instructor of corporate and organizational email systems, the issue is quite clear. The lecturer has ZERO guarantee of privacy on a messaging system owned by an employer. The moment he opened up and used an address finishing with, he accepted the rules of correspondence relating to the University of Kansas.

Kansas House committee introduces plan to expand Medicaid

The powers in the Kansas Legislature know they can't embrace any federal program that helps people and has any success. It doesn't work with their dialogue.
