Opponents of drug testing for welfare benefits see it as hassling the poor; Brownback says it will help

You mean people are opposed to peeing in a cup in exchange for free money? Heck, I'd do that! Where do I sign up?

So what's your solution? Keep giving them free money to enable their habit?

Lawrence nurse to become full-time missionary

Well, maybe her efforts will be balanced out by all the atheist organizations that provide medical care, charity relief and soup kitchens...

Oh, wait.

Drug testing bill goes to governor

Peeing in a cup in exchange for free money is a small price to pay. I question the return on investment though. If the state finds itself spending more money on drug tests than money it saves by withholding funds from druggies then I hope the program is quickly scrapped. Either that or deduct the cost of the drug test from the recipient's benefits over time.

Overland Park man sentenced to five years in prison for fatal 2010 drunken-driving collision in Lawrence

The sentence may be light because, if I remember correctly, the victim in this case went through a red light or didn't yield to the right of way or something like that.

Catholic Cardinals choose 266th pope

Are you joking? Do a Google search for "Catholic Church closings". It's happening throughout the country.

Kansan charged in accidental shooting of wife with concealed gun

I know two people that recently got their CC permits. One person said that his class was very to-the-book and taught a lot of information. The other person went to a smaller class that was taught on a guys's farm, and he said that class was a joke and that the instructor gave everyone the answers during the written exam. Each of those two people now have the CC permit, but I feel that only one of them is qualified. I think the LJWorld should do an undercover investigation to visit various schools and see how seriously the curriculum is followed at each place.
