Kansas Senate president: No rush to write new school funding formula

Gee Sam, reminds you of the time when you were a monkey, or do you do safaris? Do you actually believe that support for public education is now an extremist left-wing position?

Letter: It’s still socialism

The study you cite says: "Exactly how Americans define "socialism" or what exactly they think of when they hear the word is not known."
Traditionally, the term meant government ownership of all means of production and provision of services. Most would see this as a negative. If, however, it is taken to mean government provision of certain programs that benefit citizens but are not well served by the market system, more might see it as a positive. So this poll result does not really tell us much.

Letter: GOP failures

Bart, I wonder what period you're referring to. Was it the early 1800s when to government marched the natives off of lands they had occupied for centuries? Maybe mid century when the government went to war to control the rights of individuals to own other individuals? Later when the government gave away land it didn't exactly own to the railroads? Or maybe when the actions of the late 19th century robber barons caused the government to rein them in with anti-trust legislation.

A government by and for the people is not going to be a small government. A small government is one easily controlled by the few. Dictatorships are small. You should rethink your ideas on the concept of "government".

Sustainability board votes to work on proposal to reduce plastic bag use

The carry-home plastic bags weigh 1/7 as much as a TJ's size paper bag. A good bagger can probably get about twice as much into a paper bag, but this weight difference makes paper a larger contributor to the total carbon footprint. Also the plastic bags have built-in handles and are easier to carry.

Plastic bags can be bought on the internet for about $20 per 1000.

Paper recycling takes a lot of water. Although plastic bags apparently don't mix well with other recycling streams, grocers in many areas have recycling bins just for bags. Use them!

Letter: Clinton lie

It is definitely not amusing to consider that those of your ilk, too immature to see through the fog
of misinformation put out by the radical right, are probably old enough to vote.

Letter: Think about it

Hey Brock,
The entire 59 page document is available at a Washington Post website:
To be against this agreement is at odds with our allies in this agreement and is supportive of a more rapid Iranian nuclear weapon capability.

Kansas House approves bill upping Secretary of State Kobach's power; Douglas County lawmakers vote no

Please note that voter fraud is different from election fraud. Election fraud can change results, voter fraud is unlikely to do so. Voter ID will not affect election fraud. That this whole issue
is a sham is borne out by the partisanship of its supporters.

Letter: Christian values

No! Churches are tax exempt, so how could lowering their taxes have any effect?

Anthropology Department opposes leave for Guth

I haven't seen a word on his tenure status. If he has tenure, I would think he would be immune from KU sanctions regardless of the constitutional issues.
