But, . . but, . . .but . . It's Obama's Fault.

Don't know why he's talking about an increase in out-of-pocket spending on medical bills. Obamacare has already saved our family a bundle o'money in out-of-pocket costs. Maybe he's one of those who didn't point out to his insurance company that they are obligated to pay certain charges under Obamacare....

Free State counselor killed in vehicle-train accident near Riverfront Park north of Lawrence

This is so sad. My children and I have dealt with Aimee for the past three years at Free State and she was just top notch every time we had occasion to need her help with anything from class changes to scholarship applications. This is a huge loss to Free State. My condolences to her family, especially to her young children.

With this move, Kansas will be the ONLY STATE in the United States without a government-funded arts commission. Yep, we ARE going backwards....

Brownback signs order to eliminate the Kansas Arts Commission

Maybe everyone earning over $150,000 should be required to pay all income over that amount in taxes. Tough times require tough decisions. There will be LOTS of people hurt by the decision to end the Kansas Arts Commission, mostly the children of middle and low-income families, who will be priced out of classes at the Lawrence Arts Center and other arts-based education in Kansas towns and cities. Arts education will be reserved for the wealthy only.

Police don't suspect foul play in death of woman whose body was found in vehicle Saturday morning

Looks like you didn't read very carefully. The vehicle she was found in was NOT HERS. More likely she was on foot and got into an unlocked vehicle to try to get warm. And yes, there are circumstances where this could happen to any of us.

You're justifying your insensitivity? You really must be only 20 years old -- and extremely immature for 20.
