U.S. House candidate criticized over comment made at forum

Anyone else think that by giving that apology he undercut the very point he was trying to make?

The response I would have preferred: *eyeroll* "Oh please."

Town Talk: Signs point to August opening for Mass. St. Dillons; Zarco becomes first in country to sell new E15 ethanol gasoline; city delegation headed to Greece

The problem with ethanol is that gallon for gallon, it has about 25% less energy than gasoline. Unless the price spread is about 2.5% for e10, 3.75% for e15 or 22% for e85, you would be getting less for your money.

Physicists say they’ve found ‘God particle’

A possibly apocryphal story, but poignant nonetheless:

A politician, upset with the amount of money spent on basic scientific research, was grilling a prominent physicist during a hearing regarding the use of the research.

"What is the practical purpose of all this research?" the politician said.

Replied the physicist: "What is the practical purpose of a newborn baby?"

Agree with this. Ever get a PET scan? See a neon sign? Glow in the dark stuff? Photovoltaic cells? Really, any electronic equipment that was developed in the last thirty years? Quantum mechanics has benefited you.

I didn't see anything in the bill about specials... KSA 41-2640 (a) (4) still says happy hour is illegal.

Sound Off: We are on the no-call list, and we get calls from “card member services.” How can we get

Honestly, you can't. The caller-ID is spoofed, and they've been doing this for years with impunity. As long as it's possible to spoof caller-ID data, the do-not-call laws are toothless, as it's impossible to actually catch them.

Day 90: Legislature attacks Sharia law, United Nations Agenda 21, but no resolution on budget, redistricting

I'm a bigger fan of a constitutional amendment stating that no bill or resolution shall be passed until a final budget for that fiscal year is passed and signed.

Westside Lawrence Farmers' Market called off

Sure, they are free to not allow the farmers' market, just as everyone else is free to consequently refuse to patronize their business. It's the free market at work.
