Member of nominating commission says Stegall was overlooked earlier because of politics

Let's see . . . Felita Kahrs. Married to William Jeffrey Kahrs. Brother and sister-in-law to Rep. Mark Kahrs. Both Jeff and Mark have been buddies since before law school with Brownback Court of Appeals appointee . . . Tony Powell.

More older patients receiving stem-cell transplants at KU Cancer Center

This is an encouraging story - I'm glad to hear KU is moving forward on older patients. My father was diagnosed in 2006 with AML and KU wouldn't perform a stem cell transplant on him in 2009 because of his age - he was 71 at the time. Thankfully, MDAnderson in Houston gladly accepted him. My dad had his transplant in January, 2010, and remains in remission.

Sound Off: I'm a neighbor near Southwest Middle School, and several nights a week and on Saturdays,

Here's a radical idea - if you don't like the traffic a grade or middle school attracts . . . don't live near one. Seriously, find something important to fret about.
