Kansas GOP official says Brownback prime for job in Trump administration

He won't resign and he won't go anywhere if impeached. His ego won't let him.

Yes, because they are "letter" guidelines, not Op Ed guidelines.

Kansas lawmaker's post says black protester should go 'home'

Sounds like he believes in his freedom and little else. Welcome to leave... Indeed. So as long as you agree with him, stay. When you don't, please go because you are not free to exercise your right to freedom of expression and particularly not against a symbol or a part of the government.

Editorial: Human costs

Family members and charitable groups will not just step in. They would have already if they were able. These people need professional support that families and untrained charitable groups are unable to provide.

Kansas lawmakers expect to consider transgender restroom use

Gender is a social construction. Sex chromosomes on the other hand are not an absolute either or like our little dichotomous gender indicators on bathroom door. Our social construction doesn't even begin to address the variability in XY chromosome distribution. But for the most part we force people by the nature of our social construction to choose between only two options. How is that intellectually sensible?

KU professor who said N-word in class will lose job at university

Lets say we take race out and just say it is an offensive term, similar to the F word and other words like it. I know it isn't, but just for a moment... If a professor is spouting out profanities and they are reviewed for it by the university for creating a hostile learning environment, get by on free speech, but are then terminated, because they don't pass tenure review, are we still thinking it is a raw deal or that they are a poor teacher? Sorry for the poor punctuation there. Anyway, I am just thinking if they feel her teaching style was sloppy and that is what lead to the problem in the first place they may have some standard we aren't aware of. They may expect a certain level of eloquence she didn't possess. The use of inflammatory speech to drive a point may not be what KU is looking for in a professor. Perhaps she was delivering zingers in every class but this was just the most egregious.
