Lawrence woman with disability becomes advocate for people like herself

Stares and giggles? Seriously? Are people this ignorant and heartless? It's hard to believe.

We don't all get the same box of tools in life. Shame on those who don't understand that.

Junction City properties owned in part by Rock Chalk Park developer going to auction for unpaid taxes and fees

Perhaps because those other developers are not involved in a controversial and very expensive new development in Lawrence.

Does it occur to anyone that it's possible that Huma doesn't care?

The world is full of couples who are swingers of one sort or another. I don't condone such nonsense, and I've no respect for him or his cyber women, but it's not for me to tell her what she should condone.

Opinion: McBudget is insult to working poor

It's not the land of the American dream anymore. The American dream is that anyone who wants to work hard and try their best can improve their status. That is no longer true.

Yes and what year was that?????

Minimum wage was worth $11 in the 1960s.

People graduating from high school into the post-Bush economy have a far different challenge than you had.

Surely an educated person such as yourself understands that obesity is a disease of poverty.

Poor people eat bad food that makes them fat. Empty calories.

Lack of education is part of the problem. A bag of beans, a bag of cornmeal, and a few onions could feed a whole family for a couple of dinners and costs little. But this is the U.S. and we don't eat like that here, unfortunately.

I just read the median age of a McDonald's worker is 28.

I don't think you read my whole post. Apparently the Clintons agree with me. I said I think it's time for Weiner to bow out.

Letter: Enough Brownback

The shred of respect I had for Bob Dole is 100% gone now. Shame on him.

So the economy stinks so badly that people are desperate.

That does not mean it is justified that the minimum wage is nearly $4 a hour less in current dollars than it was in the 1960s.

Poverty in the working class is part of what is holding back the recovery.

Raising the minimum wage immediately to $10 would be the biggest boost to the recovery that could possibly happen.
