U.S. Supreme Court says law on offensive trademarks is unconstitutional; ruling expected to help Redskins

@Tony, There's no difference whatsoever; also, consider the New York Jews, Texas Wetbacks, and so on.

It's less common than you might think for people of ethnic groups to disparage one another.

‘No questions asked’: KU designates gender-inclusive dorm wing for coming school year

It's obvious, even after a clear explanation, that Bob and Justin still don't understand the difference between sex and gender. Perhaps the big words cause a problem. Let me know and I'll build a Dick and Jane version for you to use. That might help.

@Bob, you said, "...Liberal flat Earther ideology."
<li>To begin, "Flat-earther" should be hyphenated; bone up on your grammar.
<li>Next, most liberals believe in or accept science where most conservatives do not, as you appear not to. The conservatives burned people for writing about a heliocentric solar system, not the liberals. Oh, I'm sorry. I used big words again. Should I explain them to you?
<li>Finally, the only flat earth of which I'm aware is Diskworld. (look it up)

Trump expected to pull U.S. from landmark global climate agreement

Bob, Fred wasn't calling names, he was making statements of fact. Numerous statements.

As a note, #45 says MAGA. We were great until he got elected because he fooled a bunch of people. We're not now in the eyes of the world and most common sense people in the US.

Trump makes Kobach vice chair of commission reviewing voter fraud allegations

IMHO, Kobach should resign as KS SoS because he'll be paid by TrumpCo.

Further, he'll be on a permanent Federal commission, and I don't think he can draw salary from both KS and the Fed. It would be unethical for him to do that.

Oh wait, I used Koback and ethics in the same post. Those are mutually exclusive. My apologies.

City leaders want clearer picture regarding future of Lawrence transit

If the AMTRAK station is used as the transportation hub the city would have to hire people to man the place during open hours and to keep people off of the tracks.

The city would be responsible for retrofitting a barrier between the tracks and the hub to keep idiots off of the tracks.

Trump and his cronies would either charge the city exorbitant rent or make the city buy the facility.

Finally, any monies spent on local projects such as the transportation hub would mean less money going into the pockets of the 1%. That can't happen, so it's not going to happen.

Letter to the editor: Value KPR

We do every year "Bob."

Now, using rational analysis, tell us why don't you support KPR. Is it because KPR doesn't spout the drivel mouthed by RWNJ hate radio hosts?

Man admits making threat against Kansas synagogue

This sorry excuse for a human being is in fact a terrorist by virtue of his actions. Why doesn't the AP call him a terrorist?

Taking out the trash set to change in Lawrence: earlier collection times, new days for yard waste

The City Commission voted without public input. This goes beyond an inconvenience and is a brain dead solution pure and simple. <strong>Who voted for this idiocy?</strong>

The only time I have mow and do yard work is on the weekend; I can't take a vacation day every Thursday to do yardwork. So now I have to find some dry place to stow sometimes upwards of 5 brown bags for 5 days until the City picks them up. Then on top of that, the bags will be rotted on the bottom so I will have to rebag everything Thursday night before putting the bags to the curb.

New bill would pre-empt concealed-carry regulations devised by KU and other schools

Megan Jones is absolutely correct when she made her comments.

Megan Jones, a graduate student and instructor at KU expressed her objections to the bill even more bluntly.

"Campus-carry is only meant to defend and protect white men on campus," she said, prompting a quick warning from committee chairman Rep. John Barker, R-Abilene, to focus her remarks on the bill being discussed.

"This is incredibly relevant because the universities cannot make policies that would protect students on our campuses who are at the most risk," she said. "People are being threatened now on our university campuses for being black, for being LGBT, for not appearing the way all of the representatives for the NRA have appeared in front of this Legislature."
