A prominent goodbye sign from defunct Payless Furniture that labels Lawrence 'Obamaville' and much more

So an inept businessperson runs himself out of business and then credits the community with his failure? Sounds like socialism to me...

Saturday Column: Unrest highlights need for quality law enforcement

What in god's name are you blathering about, Dolph? Are you actually trying to blame Obama for some bad Baltimore cops murdering an illegally detained citizen?

You gotta connect your dots more clearly, son, or some poor fool may read this and think if we don't spend $28M on a new cop shop, our local police won't have any choice but to beat people to death because of poor training and, of course, Obama.

Pachamamas restaurant up for sale, may close after Valentine's Day; Rock Chalk gets set for big basketball tourney

Very sorry to hear about Pach, Ken Baker definitely raised the culinary bar in Lawrence. I'll miss finishing my meals with their superb warm apple almond tart, a glass of armagnac, and by taking in the nightlife view through all of the panoramic glass. Best luck to all involved, and thank you!

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

I'd never eaten at a Chick-fil-A until news of the ownership's bigotry surfaced, so I gave it a try. Turns out the product matches the constituency pretty well: Old, white, colorless and tasteless.

Saturday Column: U.S. can’t ignore threat posed by illegal immigration

And what about the threat posed by ignorant crap like this, from the publisher of a newspaper?

Thanks, LJW! I check this site so infrequently, I clearly missed your coverage!

"Speakeasy" open in downtown Lawrence; more on school boundaries near Rock Chalk Park

Huh. "Fake speakeasy" news trumps the police killing of a distraught teenager in Ottawa, KS last weekend. Or did I miss the LJW's coverage of this past Saturday's killing of 18-year-old Joseph Jennings by Ottawa cops? As his parents pleaded with cops to not shoot their son? Perhaps their flak jackets wouldn't have protected them from his BB gun?

Managing editor: Why we don't 'unpublish' stories and photos

It's curious that ljw will spare no byte when it comes to the police blotter but apparently flushed so much original content from the original lawrence.com site, including my own contributions of writing and photos from China. Interesting choices.
