$3,600 bicycle stolen from west Lawrence home

Clearly no one commenting here is a triathlete or they would totally understand why someone might own a more expensive bike.

New home sought for stray cat who was trapped and shot twice

Perhaps, but it's still irresponsible. Some cats want to go outside, some don't. My current cat would love to, and yes, he does vocalize that. However, I love him enough to make sure he's safe from cars, other animals, and apparently crazies with traps and guns. The average size home is more than enough space for a kitty to roam and be loved. Letting your cat run loose outside is lazy and negligent in my opinion, and definitely NOT in the best interests of the animal.

God’s presence is felt, not proven

Not entirely true. See above, where I was accused of having a cold and empty heart. That seems like I am being insulted based on my non-belief. So, it goes both ways.

U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of Westboro Baptist Church protesters

You're correct, by the way. Harassment is not an independent tort in the state of Kansas.

Secondly, and again, thank you for putting into more eloquent words what I was trying to express *all day* yesterday!

It is rather frightening the limitations on personal freedoms some people would like to impose. But then again, I've never been insulted and then thought I would feel better if I could sue someone for hurting my feelings.

God’s presence is felt, not proven

I'm curious why you would assume non-belief equates a cold and/or empty heart. My heart is full of love, joy, and inclusion. I know far more people with closed hearts in the name of their God.

U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of Westboro Baptist Church protesters

"To prove intentional emotional distress, the plaintiff must show: 1) the defendant must act intentionally or recklessly; (2) the defendant's conduct must be extreme and outrageous; and (3) the conduct must be the cause (4) of severe emotional distress. The definition of outrageous is subjective, but it should be more than mere insults, indignities, threats, annoyances, or petty oppressions."

I don't see that the threshold was met in this case. These were insults and indignities.

You're right, and it includes a physical manifestation of distress. I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure this case lacked that.

Actually, no, it's not. Juries are (supposed) to make their decisions based on jury instructions which provide the basis for the application of the law. That's objective. Evidence is objective (ex: an arrest report--it is what it is). Arbitrarily deciding point A) is offensive while speech B) is not....*that* is subjective.
