Panel drops complaint against Kansas lawmaker's 'racist bigots' remarks

Kansas is the hardest state to get in state tuition for out of state students. Many adults choose to live off campus at some time. Most graduate students live off campus. Although they establish a residence off campus, most continue to pay out of state tuition. In many other states, establishing a residence for 1 year or even as little of 6 months can qualify a student for in state tuition. That makes those states more attractive to other students. We aren't just talking border states, where there is often some kind of agreement.

Kansas Legislature: Furlough threat lifted, but 'absolutely stupid' stalemate continues at Statehouse

So, now, because senators who disagree are afraid the governor will veto a tax bill and think poorly of them, any more reasonable tax plan can't move forward. Why won't the governor see what the people want?

Kansas governor signs bill overhauling civil service system

If the private sector is such a great place to have all these services, why haven't private sector practitioners already taken up all the slack? Why haven't they given their services to those who need them pro bono or through foundation funds without using taxpayer funded monies? What products are we selling here in social services that can be marketed?

Kansas waitress’ message to Brownback goes viral

Because brownback hasn't gutted the infrastructure or because education doesn't lead to a more progressive society? Because she chose to make known her opinion of the governors work in an unconventional manner? Your allegation she is mind-numbed is confusing.
