Kansas House gives final approval to bill backing out of Obamacare

But this was originally a Republican plan. Why can't the Republicans just see the President's white half and help get people insured?

School funding fix may get linked to teacher licensing, other policy changes

Loosening the standards for granting credentials to teachers is the worst possible thing to re-invigorate education in Kansas. How very sad that the state that prepared me so well in the 1950s and 1960s has sunk to being the butt of late night comedians. The Republican Party and its fundamentalist Christian base do not want thinking people.

Letter: Sinful lifestyle

I once saw this incredibly insightful bumper sticker: Zeus is God! Read The Iliad!

Debate over religious beliefs, gay rights will continue

Religion and politics are choices, too, and they're protected. Sexual orientation is not a choice. Pretty simple. And, as far as Christianity is concerned, Jesus seemed pretty keen on not judging others and he identified with the least in His society. I bet he still does.

Letter: Rights for all

I have never been more deeply ashamed of my native state. It's hard to believe that the impetus to settle Kansas was to make it a free state, dedicated to advancing rights, not limiting them. Let us hope that the courts will quickly rule this legislated religious bigotry will be ruled unconstitutional, because we know the Senate and Brownback will sign this horrible act into law.

KU students, staff sound off on possibility of concealed carry of guns in campus buildings

I agree wholeheartedly with Prof. Carothers. This new law can only result in a more dangerous campus.

What was your favorite meal in college?

It isn't a dish, but I loved the pink lemonade at the Union. Do they still have pink lemonade at the Union?

Senate Majority Leader Bruce calls on KU to fire journalism professor over Twitter comment on Navy Yard shooting

Although I might not have used such strong language, I do understand Guth's anger. I also understand that the First Amendment allows us to express our anger. As long as the Westboro Baptist folks have the right to ruin funerals and Gay Pride Parades Prof. Guth has the right to say what he said.

Letter: No re-enactment

There's a difference between remembering history and celebrating treason. The rebels during the Civil War were traitors to the Constitution who defended the slow genocide of slavery by some bogus logic about "states' rights." Quantril was a thug. Reenacting his attack in 1863 would be like modern Germans reenacting Crystal Night. No decent person would tolerate it. How about a moment of silence for all the good people who've defended and died for human rights? That seems to be more in line with the Lawrence way of living.

Opinion: Bringing end to war is an Obama fantasy

Typical mean-spirited neo-con war-mongering. And what's up with all the Wizard of Oz references? As Glinda said, Dorothy always had the capability to go home. Obama is saying we can end this 9/11 War if we want to. And as far as being defenseless on 9/11/2001, it was Krauthammer's boys, Cheney and Bush who were in charge.
