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.

Customer leaves 23rd Street Brewery waitress $500 tip

A number of us were lucky enough to be present when Jessica came over and shared her experience. Trust me when I say the group of us old, grizzled vets had water in our eyes as she related how this "paying if forward" moment touched her so. What a great story and such a reminder that there is so much good in the world. Bless this family that lost a special person who obviously meant so much to them. Jessica the smile on your face will long be remembered. I am sure your life will continue to pay it forward.

Kansas Insurance Commissioner doesn't fit in GOP

Sandy is one of the very few Republicans I can support. Her years of serving the people of Lawrence and the state clearly prove that one can be a Republican that can see all sides of a problem and work with anyone to fix it. Sandy when you finally hang up your public service hat you will be sorely missed.

Local emergency responders prepared for the worst

LeBo, find the needed trauma surgeons and other required professional personnel and all our problems would be solved. Until then I support all that LMH has done and is doing to make trauma care at LMH a reality.

What is the oldest piece of furniture in your house?

If you asked my wife she would probably say me.
