Finally! Such wonderful news! It's great to not be considered a second class citizen in my own State.

KU's Spencer Museum remains closed after water leak; thousands of books damaged in art library

An amazing amount of work went into the clean up and moving of books (and water) by library and art museum staff and students and Facilities Operations. Hopefully much of the damaged collection can be salvaged. Kudos to everyone who worked there yesterday.

Heard on the Hill: Old Watson Library elevator comes to a stop; KU unveils new website for its efficiency plan; alumnus creates comic book bio of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs

It's been out of commission since Jan. 2010. It is greatly missed by people who work here(especially collection maintenance).

Lawmakers consider bill to keep Phelps family, Westboro Baptist Church from protesting funerals

This is the truth! If only people (media especially) had ignored them in the '90s, they may not have gotten this much free publicity. That's all they really care about. That and spewing hate.
