Lawrence man, among the few ticketed for Fourth of July fireworks, awaits his day in court

If spending $1 billion on advertising is "free speech" and burning the flag is "freedom of expression" then maybe shooting fireworks on the Fourth of July is also protected by the first amendment. Don't plead the fifth, Matt. Plead the first!

KU interviews two more finalists for diversity job

We must have more diversity!

We need smart people AND stupid people.
We need good people AND bad people.
We need energetic people AND lazy people.

Why can't we just have good, smart, energetic people and not give a rip about the externalities?

Man convicted of killing Lawrence boy in 1988 up for parole this month

I'm sorry, but this is what capital punishment was intended for. And don't give me that baloney about how expensive it is. Properly administered, this guy would have been edited out of the gene pool 19 years ago.
