Abortion foes push new bills in Kansas, Congress

The thing is, Leslie, is that every single pregnancy and relationship is different. You make assumptions based on your own experiences in life. You don't know what reasons a woman may have for wanting an abortion, nor should you. It's none of your business. You don't live her life for her. You know absolutely NOTHING about her, her relationship, or her situation. Therefore you have absolutely zero reason for thinking you should have anything at all to say about what she does about her pregnancy. Zip. Nada. Nothing. I would rather safe abortions be available to women than have desperate women lose their lives (because their lives are worth something, aren't they?) because they have run out of acceptable options. My own great grandmother lost her life to a (illegal!) botched abortion. Married? Yes. With several children. They couldn't afford another child, so in desperation she sought help. She bled to death. So you can take your anti-choice rhetoric and shove it. No fetus in the womb is worth more than the woman who bears it. Unless the woman carrying it says it is. Because it's HER choice. In the end, safe, legal abortions actually save lives, even if you don't agree with it.

Getting inked: The bodies of artwork in Lawrence

I am an artist, I love both Carlos and Chris's tattoo work. Carlos just finished my Kansas theme half sleeve a couple of weeks ago. The tattoo is for me, not for everyone else. I will not regret getting the work done, it has a lot of personal meaning and I thought about what I wanted for a long time. I happen to love tattoos, I always will. I saw an older lady just the other day (she had to be in her eighties) and she had several beautiful pieces on her arms and legs. I don't buy into that whole "you'll regret it when you're old" argument. As far as work goes, most places don't have an issue with tattoos anymore. I know where I work, they don't care at all. Lawrence is fortunate to have these extremely talented artists living and working here. I live in Arizona, and I travelled to Kansas three times this year to have the work done. They are amazing!

It’s official: Brownback signs bill saying life begins at fertilization

Silence, zygote. There is no god but the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and he could give a flip about who gets an abortion. He's busy making sure there is plenty of beer and strippers for the afterlife. All hail the Flying Spaghetti Monster!!!

4-year-old Ottawa boy injured in shooting

Yeah, that one was in the national news. Huff Post covered it. Good try though.

Water lilies invade KU’s Potter Lake

Yup, that's what I would do. You could even sell them online. Advertise on CL and maybe even sell lilies on Ebay and the problem won't be a problem for long! Or, just open it up to people wanting free lilies, like you said. Wish I lived closer I"d be happy to take some.

Self: Team thrives on unity

That's how I feel, too. I selfishly want him to stay at KU forever, but he deserves the chance to prove himself and shine as a head coach. No doubt he's learned from the best. Whatever he decides, he gets my best wishes for success.
