Jenkins explains timing of retirement announcement

Mr. Bloss, Term limits are a bad idea unless they could be applied to the lobbyists who steer
much of what happens in the legislative houses. With the limits, a fresh crop of newbies
arrive each term, and guess who's there to show them the ropes. "Professional politician"
has come to be a pejorative term but it should not be. It takes time foe even the most well
intentioned legislator to learn to be an effective representative. Experience does not equal

Letter to the editor: Rural vs. urban

Another ideologue equating a government that provides services to its citizens with socialism...
And BTW, it can be strongly argued that the prospect of the USSR coming into the war against Japan was the real incentive for Japan's surrender, not the A-bomb. Capitulation to the U.S. would be far better for Japan than to the Russians, with whom they had fought (and won) a bitter war just a few decades before.

Letter to the editor: Not deplorable

This LTE writer may have a lot of great academic credentials, but he gets a D- in reading comprehension for this. Clinton did not say that ALL Trump supporters were deplorable.

Opinion: Trump unfit … so what are we?

OK Bob, I'll try.

The answer is: we don't! Clinton said that half of Trump's supports are "deplorable".
It's you who are assigning hat adjective to police, veterans and the military.

University leaders share personal concerns about guns on campus

Not exactly, Pete. It may not be his house, but it IS his home. And home is where one
should able to feel safe. On the other side of the coin, would you say that the Castle
Doctrine might not apply for a person living in a rental house depending on the landlord's preferences?

Letter to the editor: Sad Kansan

Does the point really have to be repeated that site of the conference is irrelevant to the
observation that attendees from around the world were aware that foolish policies in
Kansas were causing problems?

Kansas senator's comments on Supreme Court nominee stir up conservatives

The U.S. Constitution states that the Senate is to provide advise and consent for a Supreme Court nomination by the President. For a Senator to obstruct or refuse to act on this process is a direct violation of his/her oath of office.

Letter: School alarm

Shane, here's what required to teach at a public school in Kansas:

Kansas Teaching Certification. All Kansas educators need a state-issued certification to teach. To qualify for licensure, Kansas candidates must have a bachelor's degree, complete an approved teacher preparation program, pass the required tests for their licensure area, and submit all necessary licensure forms and fees ...

Does $49K seem like too much for this amount of preparation? If teachers were simply babysitters they would make about 140days x 6hrs/day x $5/hr x 25kids = $105K.

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?
