City arts commission recommends mural for Lawrence library wall

Your bringing up Curry's artistic merit misses the point: I brought Mr. Curry's mural into the conversation because it is a public mural displaying political issues when conservatives were "running the show" to show how silly your statement is about liberals being in charge translating into political murals. I might add that Curry quit his commission work in the capital early because of the meddling of the potiticians.

You compound the problem when you insult the group who have come up with the wonderful theme of this mural. You are the one displaying hatred, not these women. I can only suggest that you visit their website: https://www.wocmural.com/ to educate yourself about their motivations, which has nothing to do about hatred of men and everything to do about inclusion, celebrating our many cultural traditions in our fair city, and to highlight an untold story from our history.

Shame on you.

Murals are more symbols than signs, and have no relationship at all to guns, explosives and other ordnances.

Murals are for the public, Mr. chip-on-your-shoulder, so where's the beef? As to liberals being behind all the murals, I think the history of our state has been commemorated a few times before in public murals by some pretty conservative folks before: get over it!

Opinion: Velvet revolution in Armenia a small miracle

Thanks for educating us; I'll be watching with hope and anticipation that little Armenia will persevere. It has a fascinating history that includes being the first Christian nation in the world.

Congratulations! One step at a time, and this one is a step closer to adorning our beautiful library with a wonderful mural.

Spilled potatoes close section of Interstate-70 for 6 hours

How 'bout: "3/8 of a state south of Nebraska?"

I knew someone who lived just north of Salina who used to really stick it to anyone who said Salina was not in eastern Kansas, so there you have it: it's in the eyes of the beholder and to call it anything different is like arguing over how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. My friend is cutting the pie into two pieces and you're cutting it into three. I say pass the ice cream and you can eat one slice of your pie and I'll eat one piece of my friend's.

Eastern Kansas bias. Look at attached image of Kansas counties and you will see that the center line in Kansas is on the west edge of Lincoln (LC) county, which is one county WEST of Saline county. Saline county is indeed in the eastern half of the state, so "somebody" should tell the AP they were OK after all. If you want to be more refined in your description, you could cut Kansas into thirds and call Saline "central" Kansas, but anyone from western Kansas will roll their eyes at you if you call Salina "western Kansas." Kinda like New Yorkers saying everything west of the Appalachians is called "the west."

Opinion: They brought it on themselves

OK; if you wrote your piece and merely re-posted verbatim your original anti-abortion thoughts as a reaction to a piece about a racist Republican candidate, I'll take your word for it. That does not make it relevant to the conversation, however. In spite of the diversionary nature of your post, I will ask you: since you are so opposed to abortion, and our culture/options have significantly changed since Roe v Wade, largely because of the acceptance of out-of-wedlock births and contraception availability, do you think that your second list of "changed conditions" are things that should be encouraged to the point that abortions are no longer necessary? I cannot tell whether you think that the trends that have made abortions a less chosen option is a good thing or at least should continue to be encouraged as a way to reduce abortions or not. Please elaborate.

Hm.....re-posting your post from over 9 months ago? http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2017/aug...
And both times without citation from where you copied it from? Really, now.......
