Kansas House committee wants Board of Regents to study benefits of privatizing many functions at state universities

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe many aspects of KU are already private. KU Housing, KU Dining, the unions, and the union bookstores are all contracted out.

Former KDHE secretary Rod Bremby says he did not resign

Where is this crying like a baby you speak of? Hyperbole much?

This statement sounds pretty adult like to me: “Inside, I think I know what the issue is. But because my speculation or my beliefs could impact someone else’s character, I am reluctant to do that,”

And he called a new conference to whine about it? Where do you see that? All I see is a lecture on sustainability at Kansas City Kansas Community College.

Profile of Koch brothers misguided

"The far left today can't ever seem to come to grips with the fact that those who disagree with them have the right to express their own views and support their own causes too."

Is the reason why the right so passionately supports Cordoba? Oh wait...

Are you satisfied with the job that Kenneth Feinberg, the Obama Administration’s bank executives "pay czar" is doing?

I agree beatrice. I really doubt most commentators have even heard the name Kenneth Feinburg, let alone know what he does and how well he does it.

Most responses support coal plant

'And Bill Shrader of Jamestown, Kan., criticized those in eastern Kansas who opposed the project. “Most states are dying to get this kind of opportunity — only eastern Kansas does not know anything about western Kansas.”'

Most states are NOT dying to get this opportunity. Coal plants plans are being abandoned or put on hold all across the country. There is a reason this proposal is in Kansas and not in Colorado, where most of the energy is going. Colorado is not dying to have this plant.

Kansas River expected to reach near-flood levels by Tuesday evening

I was more commenting on Lawrence having ample water storage capacity for rainfall. It doesn't really matter which river it comes from.

Besides, water taken from the Wakarusa is really borrowed from the Kaw River downstream, being in the same watershed.
