Fossil hunter attempting another go at getting state fossil named

"...because at some point you gotta realize that people do not want what you're recommending."
Ummm....YA THINK!!! Now...load up the legislature with a bunch of money wasting lefties and the state fossil would be anointed next week. If they can't afford it...they'll just raise the debt ceiling and put it on the credit card.

Brownback administration won't treat same-sex married couples the same for tax purposes

Nice headline. Where in the article does it show how they "won't treat same-sex married couples the same"?
Sounds like they're treating them the same....as illegitimate.
Some of you are hybrid socialists/communists and expect everyone to pay your way. You elect officials to reflect those views. Brownback is religious. He's also pretty bright. Like the Kansans that elected him. If you show him an apple and an orange and you tell him they are the same...he's going to argue with you.

Letter: Puppet leaders

Thanks. So you are all for only allowing children and elderly to be covered? Good. I'm glad you are taking a stand against the 'freeloaders' you referred to.

It doesn't matter who's in office. If they spend money they don't have and continue to steal from earners to give to non-earners...it doesn't take an economist to "predict future economic activity". There's just not enough of us to tap for your charity John.

Except that it would take $50+ million to set up a proper exchange (if such a thing exists) and Medicaid has been a losing bet since it's inception. Because it is based on emotion instead of logic, your single paragraph advertisement is worthless.

Vacant Sears building sold; plans at City Hall suggest Dick's Sporting Goods on the way

What local businesses? Francis doesn't carry enough sporting goods to compete with anyone. What other businesses are they competing with? Walmart? Target?
When it comes to outdoor gear and sporting goods...Lawrence is a joke.

Charges won't be filed in fatal bike-truck collision at South Lawrence Trafficway

Typical. It is the way of our nation now though....blame everything and everyone else for the results or their situation.
"...Several witnesses also driving the same direction as Spencer were able to verify that he had the green light." Pretty simple.
These types of intersections exist all across the country. For the most part...the only times tragedies like this occur are when someone isn't paying attention. When that happens...all your 'bubble wrap' preventative measures go out the window.

Opinion: Girls’ deaths moved struggle forward

I've just heard it all my life. Militant family and friends blaming their failures on something a white person did. At some point we need to focus on the present and take responsibility for ourselves. Stop stirring the pot with constant inflammatory 'race baiting/blaming language. Stop blaming white people for something their ancestors may or may not have done. The more you blame white people...the more they will pull away from conversation. I think they just need to die off (old racists both black and white) and let us get on with life without their racist blather to bring us down.

Opinion: Girls’ deaths moved struggle forward

As a black man I am sickened by race baiters like Pitts. Black as I do not want to associate myself with the African tribes that sold their prisoners of war to white men who enslaved them. The ultimate black on black crime that racists like Pitts will never mention. They only serve to stir the pot of racism by attempting to make white people guilty for what some white fool did 50 years ago and to make black people resent white people by somehow relating a few situations today with atrocities of the past. We are not entitled to anything simply because of our race. Guys like Pitts are nothing more than racists. Not unlike a white guy yelling at his weekly meeting 50 years ago. Pitts writes his brand of racism every week. The only difference is their costumes.
