Legislative leaders will take budget meetings to universities around the state

An abacus is much cheaper and more cost-effective than one of them there fancy computerrs. And who needs libraries and books? We have the Bible, nobody needs more than that.

I'm sure there is an ALEC study somewhere proving it.

The legislators will probably look at all these fancy computeeerrs around campus and conclude that the budget need to be cut further.

Editorial: Parking progress

What if you don't have a smart phone? I don't have one. What if you don't have a credit card? Not everyone does.

Problem of voter registrations in `suspense' likely to continue

Just to reiterate:

**There is a known problem: thousands of people provided the documentation to the DMV, which is supposed to send the information to the county clerks.
**For some strange reason, this information is not being transferred by the DMV.
**As a result, thousands of people who are LEGALLY allowed to vote won't be allowed to, because the DMV didn't transfer the information to the clerks.
**Like all other branches of the state government, the DMV is controlled by the Republican Party
**The problem of the "lost information" is known to Kris Kobach
**Kris Kobach refuses to fix the problem.

Is it a leap of logic to conclude that the DMV is intentionally not transferring the information, given that Kobach is doing nothing to fix the problem?

Kobach, Brownback, and the leaders of the Kansas GOP don't believe people they don't like should be allowed to vote.

Some people are missing the point here.

Many of these voters DID provide the proper documentation at the DMV, but it mysteriously disappeared on its way to the voting clerks, despite Kobach's assurances that the transfer of information would be seamless.

He's a liar. He has no intention of making sure the information gets from the DMV to the election clerks. People who DID provide the documentation will be denied the right to vote anyway. That's Kobach's intention.

Local leaders dissect the Lawrence economy's challenges and opportunities

It's a combination of things.

The state is defunding KU and cutting back on higher education. That has a ripple effect in a city devoted to higher education.

While I'm not a big fan of tax abatement, the city IS too resistant to retail growth. If a store wants to come here, let them come. Jobs are jobs. YES we want higher-end jobs. But that doesn't mean we don't need lower-end jobs too.

I've been to Sun City. Unlivable hellhole if you like anything GREEN and living that doesn't require thousands of gallons of water.

Lawrence has some problems but the Phoenix area will be abandoned within 100 years when the water runs out.

Advocates for those with developmental disabilities urge attendance at upcoming hearings

I suspect Dave Trabert won't dare raise his head in this thread.

Libertarianism and economic conservatism fail when it comes to disabilities, autism, and related problems.

Just remember: the legislature THREATENED the disabled. They attacked the weakest members of society.

State education board seeks $656 million funding increase

I'm still waiting for Dave Trabert and the Koch Brothers' libertarian, market-based solution for people with developmental disabilities and severe cognitive issues.

State education board seeks $656 million funding increase

Brownback and the legislature know damn well that the Court will rule against them. They don't care.

I predict that they will simply ignore the court order, setting the state for the worst constitutional crisis in Kansas since the Civil War.

Brownback and the GOP leaders are radical revolutionaries bent on destroying state government and privatizing as many functions as possible.
