Re-enactors live-tweet Quantrill's raid events


These are newspaper reports from the first few days after the raid.

From the Leavenworth Conservative, August 24, 1863: "We arrived in Lawrence at seven o'clock. Flying rumors had painted a terrible picture, but the reality exceeded the report. We found Massachusetts Street one mass of smoldering ruins and crumbling walls, the light from which cast a sickening glare upon the crowds of excited men and distracted women gazing upon the ruins of their once happy homes and prosperous business."

The story of Judge and Mrs. Carpenter has always been the most heart wrenching and compelling of all to me. I'm glad someone chose to play out their parts. This isn't lame at all. This is history making history. If you find this lame, you probably don't appreciate our local history much.

*Getting* a drug problem? You're trying to be ironic, right?

City to install blue traffic lights for catching drivers running red lights

Since when do I have to respond to a Google questionnaire to be able to read more than the first couple of paragraphs of a story??? Is this a ghost in my machine or is it's problem?

City to install blue traffic lights for catching drivers running red lights

I don't believe the object is to raise revenue. I believe it is to make our streets safer and that is sorely needed in Lawrence. I've never seen so many people disregard the rules of the road. Maybe they just don't know them? That's what it often feels like.

Illinois man sentenced to 30 months in prison in case where children were bound and blindfolded in parking lot

gatekeeper, I realize you're getting your information from the HuffPo article but more accurate information is to be found in the above article.

I wonder if the father has gotten any mental health help while waiting for sentencing?

Opinion: Redskins mascot can’t be justified

I didn't answer because your question had nothing to do with my comment.

It's difficult to hold your head up when it's been forced down so long that your neck no longer works.

You have no idea of my insight or experience. None at all.

Armored_One...I can't begin to imagine the uproar if there were a professional sports team named "The White Trash".

Quoting a derogatory term in a high school essay is considerably different than chanting it while lynching someone. Your story really bears little weight on the subject.
