How do you feel about stores being open on Thanksgiving?

As with most things the decision to shop on Thanksgiving is a personal matter. For my family we have decided to not frequent any stores that will be open on the holiday. The Christmas season has become so commercialized that most of the joy that used to be present for me has long past. The Ghost of Christmas past is more joyous than the Ghost of Christmas present and I am saddened by what the Ghost of Christmas future will bring.

Should Charlie Weis be fired?

Probably should, just don't hire someone who would yell and demand hard work from his players. Doing so would probably upset residents and parents and make the players feel bad. It might however produce some spirit in this team and give them a few wins each year.

Letter: Courage lacking

Trust me when I say that I am caught in the middle of this struggle, so please recognize that my question is not based on any partisan politics.

Many have stated that the ACA is a legally passed law and Congress has no legal right to not fund it. However, hasn't the President also gone against this legaly passed law by his delays of parts of it and exemptions from the law to many? How can it be acceptable for one side to change and alter the law but not the otherr?

Also, aren't there many laws on the books that both sides ignore or openly do not enforce? How about our borders?

This old war horse openly admits that sometimes he just doesn't get it.

Should university professors be able to say anything they want on social media?

I do believe employers should have the right to discipline an employee that uses any social media that defames or puts the employer in a negative light. The individual has the right to say whatever they want but the employer also has rights to protect itself.

Letter: How many?

I wish there were some way to take off this Sheriff's Badge to the world that our country seems to have on. Let someone else be the moral crusader for a few decades.

Is $140 in fine and court costs a fair price for a speeding ticket in Lawrence?

I am curious as to the fine for texting and driving. I am far more likely to be hit by a driver staring into his or her lap, especially now the students are back in town.
