What color is "the dress": white and gold or blue and black?

If the white/gold version I've seen is darkened by about 2 stops in Photoshop it looks blue/black. If the blue/black version I've seen is brightened by 2 stops it looks white/gold. There is also the issue of white balance in the camera and processing, and that the internet is not color calibrated, meaning every different device the photo is viewed on could be darker or lighter, or warmer (red/orange/yellow) or cooler (blue). When a very dark object, such as a blue/black dress, fills much of the frame of a camera on auto-exposure the camera is going to over-expose. The example of the photo posted above is darker than several that I've seen going around.

Bicyclist struck, killed by car in rural Douglas County

I was riding on a 30 mph street today when a semi-truck passed me going well above the speed limit. The oncoming car in the other lane had to slow down to avoid an accident. The truck driver never even tapped the brakes. Is being in a hurry really worth taking the chance of killing someone?

Brownback lays out economic goals for re-election campaign

You seem to misunderstand how this works. If you wanted to be re-elected you should have created the jobs in your first term.

Editorial: Children in need

Because most Americans are compassionate, and refuse to let children and old people suffer when it is within our power to do something about it. They may be someone else's responsibility, but we're still going to take care of them, because we aren't ready to abandon children and the elderly, yet.

Sound Off: In a crosswalk, when the red hand starts flashing and the seconds countdown begins, is it

In Lawrence even the Police jaywalk and cross on red. I've been standing with my kids downtown waiting for the green light, and the foot patrol strolls right through a red light. My kids ask me "Why are we the only ones who wait?"

Explosives found in truck parked near Statehouse

Crazy and dangerous is the enemy of all law abiding citizens who ever you vote for. If we keep escalating the rhetoric and political drama with the "reds are nazis" and "blues are commies" BS you can be sure we will all be in more danger from the "kill 'em all" nut jobs.
