KU journalism professor condemned by administrators for tweet about NRA

Nicely said. All good points I'll have to think about. As far as whether I think he's an appropriate person to help form young minds? I think some of our best teachers are flawed, human. I think most Americans, no matter what their political stripes, are sincerely frustrated by the gun violence proliferating out of control. All of us want a simple answer, someone to blame. This tweet to me is just another frustrated American who probably should have thought before he tweeted...

KU journalism professor condemned by administrators for tweet about NRA

Just gave this a little more thought, and it occurs to me what a great teachable moment this is for a journalism professor. He can use this whole situation to train up the next generation of journalists to be perhaps a bit more social media savvy. He should get a pass on this, but it's true people need to be careful about what they write on social media. Looks like he went off, if you'll excuse me, a bit "half-cocked."

I support Professor Guth. Obviously he was adopting an overly didactic tone here, but the sentiment rings true for me. This ridiculous country can fix anything but our absurd gun-violence problem. If KU fires Guth, none of my children will attend this school. Some days I get so tired of living in a red state.

Lawrence residents say new garbage cans are stinking up the city

Seriously, it's not the end of the world either way. Squeeze a bit of soap in there, pour a bottle of cheap white vinegar in there from the dollar store, let it sit and dump it out. How bad could it be?

Folks who are really upset about this one - I've got some laundry for you to fold. Head on over, I'll put you to work.

Another Jefferson County resident dies on U.S. Highway 59, south of Oskaloosa

Seat belts could have made all the difference with both of these fatality accidents, but there must be something wrong with this particular stretch of highway to have two people die within 0.3 of a mile within one week.

Is there going to be an investigation into what is happening right here?

It's usually a far safer road than Wellman.
