School board abruptly adjourns meeting after audience disruption; police called

"Shouldn't social issues and current politics be discussed in Social Studies?"

Yes, but you've got to be careful with some -- maybe most -- middle school-aged kids. Their brains aren't anywhere near done yet. Some will get the value of a good discussion; others will leave class and all they know is, "Mr. Teacher used the word '[whatever]' today."

And frankly, none of us know what "racist remarks" the guy actually used. If you asked the 25 kids in the classroom what happened, I bet you'd get 25 different answers now that this thing has blown up.

Several incumbent Kansas lawmakers bow out just before filing deadline

And that's exactly what's happened in a lot of cases: One member of Team Tinfoil Hat bows out, knowing he or she is going to get drilled in the upcoming election. They, along with ALEC/AFP/Kansas Chamber select a replacement who's just as nuts but doesn't have a voting record to defend. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. The only way to ensure that we won't end up with more of the same is to vote Democratic, Independent or Libertarian.

KU students, staff sound off on possibility of concealed carry of guns in campus buildings

Line-cutting, mobbing has KU Athletics reviewing Late Night admittance protocol

"I was one of those students mentioned in the article who joined friends who had saved spots in line..."

And this, my friends, is the problem. Two freshmen saving seats for 8th floor McCollum.
