Letter: Lesson of history

Those like Brownback believe we should not permit any Syrians into Kansas have a poor image of the strength of this country and particularly this state. Brownback demonstrates an ignorance of what part of government controls foreign policy and immigration. Finally, I do not want to hear Sammy speak about his Christianity. Didn't someone say, "And the second commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself?"

Editorial: Recycling refinement

Ending a sentence with a preposition is something the editor should not put up with.

Former AG Phill Kline sues to restore law license

Ironic is it that the current state AG will have to ask the Legislature for mo' $$ to defend the court the legislature wants to defund.

Politics makes strange bedfellows.

Kansas elections chief files 3 criminal cases under new law

Boy I feel a whole lot better now that all that voter fraud with illegal aliens voting is a goner. The election judges in Johnson and Sherman counties should have been able to tell these folk were aliens. Their green reptilian skin and super light sabers should have been dead giveaways.

Kobach to announce prosecutions

Based upon the parade of horribles that Mr. Kobach presented last week, he said that over 20 elections in the past 25 years have been decided by less than 50 votes.

Could somebody help me with the arithmetic. How many elections would be effected by 3 votes?

Parking questions loom for Here @ Kansas apartment project as high-tech parking company files for bankruptcy, stops work on project

Boomerang filed Chapter 11 on August 19, 2015 in Delaware. It filed because its major lender defaulted. (go figure!) The major lender has filed its own bankruptcy in the Southern District of NY and has liens on the licenses and patents of Boomerang. The Boomerang bankruptcy will allow it to wash out the defaulting lender's liens and obtain financing for future projects. Given that Delaware Bankruptcy Courts tend to move expeditiously particularly when the debtor has the financing in place for restructuring, this report may be nothing more than evidence that Chicken Little is alive and well in Lawrence.

Kobach debates voter ID laws with KU law professor

Heckler also subscribes to the theory that there was a second gunman IN the Texas School Book Depository.

The legislature gave Kobach authority to prosecute voter fraud. Anyone heard or seen a case filed yet? No? Kobach is too busy remodeling his barn

KU student charged with sexual battery in dorm room rape case enters diversion agreement

What is missing from the article is the following language in the second-to-last paragraph:

If the man fails to meet any of the diversion agreement’s conditions, the state can prosecute the case and his diversion agreement contains his admission to all the material elements of the crime.

Kansas agency bans employees from electronic recording

I would think with all the wonderful, stupendous, fabulous deeds of the greatest state government in the whole wide world, they would want the cameras, videos and tape recorders running 24/6 (day off to go to the church o' Sam).

Was the sarcasm too subtle?
