After days of terror, French police kill gunmen in twin attacks, free 16 hostages

Sorry you don't realize that is the view some far-left liberals hold. My point stands.

After days of terror, French police kill gunmen in twin attacks, free 16 hostages

Hi Joe, interesting connection, I hadn't thought of that.

Wondering how folks feel about this - as in the movie you mentioned - do people end up sympathizing with the criminals (these days, in most movies) or with the Bolivian forces that track them down?

After all, Butch and Sundance were lawbreakers, but not necessarily 'terrorists’. But criminals nonetheless.

I guess I would rather see Judge Roy Bean justice vs., the bed-wetting liberal view that the US is to blame and everyone else is a victim and their barbarianism is somehow justified.

"Authorities around Europe have warned of the threat posed by the return of Western jihadis trained in warfare. France counts at least 1,200 citizens in the war zone in Syria — headed there, returned or dead. Both the Islamic State group and al-Qaida have threatened France, home to Western Europe’s largest Muslim population."

To quote Judge Roy Bean: "A horse thief always gets a fair trial before he's hung." Do the same for them.

Downtown Lawrence grocery store in the works for 11th and Massachusetts

Great news! Lil' Jimmy will be designing the store - cool vibes ahead!

WIth Lil' JL hip hoppin' Jim Sr's vision, we are rappin' with today's homeslice generation.

Good to see a grocery store come back to that location. Waaay back in the day, the original cool daddies bagged your groceries and ran them out to Miss Daisy's comfort ride.

Ask Jim what he called bagging groceries back then: 'PACKAGE PLEASE' was belted over the intercom to bring more bag boys running from the aisle. Or sackers, he hated that term for kids that would place your groceries into paper bags and carry them to the car. It must have reminded him of the home office over there on Iowa Street and the family time there. Checkers was then born and has great prices to this day!

We the a JL day, and the a lil' JL day exactly 6 months later to celebrate these hard working grocery store stalwarts. And let;s get Mrs Lewis, lil' JL's mom back for the parade!

Love these guys, their good selection, fresh meats and produce, and weekly specials. Saves us all money! And Bob, cull your produce rack!!

Chick-fil-A files plans to build restaurant on South Iowa Street; city sets details for ice rink grand opening

God Bless Chick-fil-A. Well run company, with customer service second-to-none (try it before you even attempt a credible comment), quality, good value food, and a diverse employee base (yes, hiring all walks of life). Realists get the breath of inclusiveness and reward a top shelf company with continued success and growth.

God will not be mocked.

City struggles to interpret Wicked Broadband's finances as it considers $300k loan guarantee

Good gravy! There is not a private sector company that would consider any agreement with a partner or vendor that would not review the associated financials. And base a decision to move forward without this info. This is an IQ test.

Local couples must wait to learn extent of same-sex marriage rights

It is not a sin to call sin a sin. The verse you allude to is often taken out of context. We can judge sin, and deviation from God's plan. Adultery is a sin, as is fornication, etc. Homosexualy is also a sin, and is now pushed on all of us, despite those that practice it saying it is 'private' and 'none of our business'. Then make it none of our business by keeping it to yourself. Jesus did die on the cross for our sin, but not intentional,. perpetual sin. That is on us, and not covered by the sacrifice Christ made on the Cross. If we sin intentionally, we send Christ back to the Cross over and over. That sin will not be forgiven. Check out the writings of Paul for the true meaning of the scripture.

God bless us all.

Local couples must wait to learn extent of same-sex marriage rights

Context is your friend God does not/did not condone multiple wives, and those that chose this path paid a price.

You appear to be the one that has not read the whole Bible and picks and chooses verses, out of context, to find a false conclusion.

Read the Bible cover to cover to understand God's plan. In a nutshell, all have fallen short of the glory of God, and his plan for redemption is available to all who will believe.

Federal judge refuses to block Kansas abortion rules

You said: "The research PROVES that humans don't actually reach full self awareness until minimum age 5."

Can't tell from your post if you have children or not, but guessing you don't. Having held the face of my newborn in my hands and looked into his. and then her, eyes. one realizes how wrong abortion is.

Try losing a child at any age, even at birth. You mention "self awareness"? How about the awareness of the parent? You cannot begin to experience the grief, and I wish that on no one.

Becoming a parent also impacts one's view of abortion. I have eternal regret for children I will never know due to selfish decisions. Having kids will change your mind and leave you with an unshakeable sorrow if abortion was a 'choice' you made in the past.
