Letter to the editor: Anthem kneeling

I am with you on this, Charles. I, too, am a veteran and will stand and put my hand over my heart during the national anthem. I also support every American's right to free expression as spelled out in our constitution. I may not always like what people say and do, but as a patriot I fully support their right to express it.

Opinion: Court takes legislative role on ACA

Old George Will has such a nasty and haughty way of wording things when he disagrees. The fact is, it wasn't just Justice Roberts, it was six out of nine Supreme Court justices who made this decision. What's more, Mr. Will forgets that when things are unclear, decisions can be made based on the spirit of the law as well as the letter of the law. This is why we have a Supreme Court, to interpret the entirety of the laws the other two branches enact.

Kansas to set up seismic monitoring system

Since there will probably be huge drops in state education funding due to the budget shortfalls resulting from income tax breaks to "small business owners," it would be great to install the seismographs at schools to help teach about the area's geology.
