End may be coming for GOP moderates

So, which party took control of the Senate as a result of the recall election?

Lawrence teachers, district at stalemate in salary negotiations

Considering that estimates of attrition remain fairly high even in a down economy, I suspect many teachers are doing just that.

Groups urge veto of anti-Sharia law bill


Can I opt out? I think my comment acknowledging an action taken by the state was somehow mistaken for support (also, I'm not sure why my initial comment ended up below the reply).

Brownback plans to sign more aggressive tax-cutting bill after Senate halts alternative

"Tax relief," he says. I guess he does have a point; after all, he will be relieving those of us who aren't wealthy of more of our money.

Groups urge veto of anti-Sharia law bill

Also - though I may be mistaken - I believe Kansas declared English it's official state language several years ago.

Groups urge veto of anti-Sharia law bill

The United States has no official language at the federal level. It's not up to Brownback to make that call.

Well, the letter itself was fairly snarky. Why complain about the lack of well-lit sidewalks accessible to retirees only to turn around and imply that providing the same for KU students is somehow wasteful? Without KU, Lawrence would be South Leavenworth.

Legislative leaders to Brownback: Veto the tax cut

What reality is that? The Muslims are out to get us? If a third-party payer covers all or part of the cost of contraception, the the sky will start falling? Help me out here.

Day 90: Legislature attacks Sharia law, United Nations Agenda 21, but no resolution on budget, redistricting

"Actually Browback is becoming a very powerful governor..."

That's what I'm afraid of.

"...setting a new more conservative agenda!"

Socially? OK, but I'm not sure that's in the best interests of most Kansans, especially women.

Fiscally? Not so much. Throwing away a $600 million surplus and running up a deficit on a hope and a prayer that new business will follow is not fiscally responsible.
