Kobach: Democrat Taylor must stay on Senate ballot

Both parties have egg on their faces. Very poor exceuction of his intent by Taylor. Surely he have anticipated the problems by not tracking the language of the statute in his withdrawal letter.

Of course, the Repubicans look just as bad. Why do they care if democrats are disenfranchised? And what about the obvious conflict of interest in Kobach's ruling on the matter.

Proof positive why many of us view all politicians, regardless of party, disfavorably.

Davis vows to restore school funding, but won't say how

Flat taxes are inherently burdensome and unfair to the middle class and working poor. Remember Herman Cain and his 9/9/9 plan?

The uber wealthy would love a flat tax.

Study: Gender linked to types of young drivers' crashes

As a start, it would seem to me to be a good idea to reinstitute driver's education in the Lawrence school system. If we have money to build fancy football fields with artificial turf, we should be able to afford instruction for our youngsters in the safe operation of a motor vehicle. If might even save a few lives and/or serious injuries.

Jenkins frustrated with lack of strategy for Ukraine crisis

Lynn Jenkins wouldn't recognize a viable Ukraine strategy if it reared its head, spat and hissed, and bit her in the behind.

Brownback appoints former aide Stegall to Kansas Supreme Court

The problem is that he does have credibility amongst a significant portion of Kansans. And he is in for life. Many of us are going to have to life with his decisions for the rest of our lives.

The lesson to be learned is that Brownback needs to be voted out so he doesn't have the opportunity to appoint a second or third radical to our states's highest court.

Let's be realistic. Like it or not, we are pretty much stuck with this guy for decades.

Douglas County Law Library renamed to honor retiring judge Michael Malone

Judge Malone taught me Trial Advocacy at KU Law School. He was a fine teacher. Judge Malone officiated at my wedding ceremony. Although the marriage didn't withstand the test of time, still, it was a beautiful ceremony. Judge Malone served the people of Douglas County honorably and admirably for decades, first as District Attorney, then as District Judge.

Mike Malone is a good and decent man, and peformed his proseuctorial and judicial functions at the fairest and highest levels.

Thanks, Judge, for your wonderful contriubutions to our community. You will be missed.

Here's wishing you a wonderful, enjoyable and fruitful retirement.

As city grows northwest, many new students won't be allowed to go to Lawrence schools

You don't know me Dorothy, and hence you shouhldn't be making such crass and brash assumptions about what I believe.

I am hardly one who "admires big corporation."

You shouldn't be so presumptuous

Brownback appoints former aide Stegall to Kansas Supreme Court

That's not exactly the way things work for folks who have ascended to positions of immense power, Thomas. Ever hear of Antonin Scalia? He is another right wing radical idealogue who has been firmly and comfortably entrenched on the U.S. Supreme Court for nearly thirty years.

Kansas University Police begin using body-mounted cameras

The only thing I don't like about it is that the individual police officer is given discretion as to whether to save the tape. An officer could very conveniently "forget" to save the recording should his professionalism fall below standard. With digital technology the space necessary to save the recording until it can be reviewed and/or discarded is minimal . All recordings should be automatically saved until a supervisor determines it is of no evidentiary or public interest value.
