I am a retired California teacher and no school I know of ever banned students from having American flags.

Free State High School student told Confederate flag not allowed at school

How ironic that the rebel flag would be shown at a high school named "Free State."

McCollum Hall being gutted in preparation for big boom

So long, McCollum. I had some great times there. Boy, if those walls could talk, I'd be busted.

100 years ago: East Lawrence residents concerned about mysterious woman in black

I am impressed that 100 years ago Kansas was a progressive state. I guess its abolitionist roots were not so deeply buried yet.

Kansas agencies not recognizing gay marriages yet

Although it isn't fully settled yet, same-sex marriage will soon be a non-issue as far as the courts are concerned. In the Culture Wars, the Right-wing has lost the same-sex marriage battle. Gov. Brownback is expressing a sad incivility in his reaction. Such a poor loser. And such a bad Christian. When are the fundamentalists going to learn what the definition of "neighbor" is as in, Love thy neighbor? If it wasn't so mean-spirited and evil, it would be funny.

100 years ago: Lawrence participates in national prayer day for peace in Europe

The great moral issues of a century ago, peace and prohibition, proved to be will-o-the-wisps. It isn't that they weren't noble goals, they just are too personal for huge groups. Alone the single person may be an agent for peace and personal self-control. Forcing others to do the same is thought-control.

Lawrence school officials weigh pros and cons of later start times for teens

Don't blame social media. I taught high school for forty years and I can state clearly that the adolescent brain doesn't truly wake up until 10 a.m. Academic classes in the morning and electives and physical education, team sports, etc. in the afternoon.

KU professor helping identify important sites, events in LGBT history

Wonder if the National Park Service will also gather scholars to identify the sites where people have struggled to achieve the right of a woman to control her own body?

Not one woman has written a comment here. Silence can be very loud.
