Kansas secretary of state pursuing 3 new criminal cases, but none involving noncitizens

Also, unless the Democrats have someone out there, we are looking at our next governor. Kind of want to see Kathleen run again. If for no other reason, it would be fun to watch a few GOP heads explode.

Kansas secretary of state pursuing 3 new criminal cases, but none involving noncitizens

Curious - were the Sedgwick registers being altruistic about registering new citizens, or were they on a fishing expedition? Kind of discourages new citizens from legally registering if they mistakenly registered in the past. (Like maybe they registered at a group event with their friends, and didn't want those around them to know they weren't yet a citizen). Or like my foreign adopted kids who were legal citizens prior to 9/11 based solely on their American birth certificates, but who became only legal resident, non-citizens after changes in the laws did not grandfather them in.

Jayhawks lose at Iowa State, marking third straight road setback

While Mason may be driving into nowhere, it often looks brilliant when you have someone at the rim to dish to. We are missing an inside presence for 2 years. Given that we only sort of had a "presence" with Embid and Black before that, you start to wonder about the whole scheme. I think Self has fallen into the Dean Smith/Roy problem of overthinking the player substitutions. Just play Michelson a whole half and then Lucas or Traylor for next. Odd man out gets the next game start. Same with Svi and Greene. Play them 10 minutes no matter what. If they guys who are playing are the ones that "earned" the playing time, then we are in a heap of hurt.

If I'm looking at the Fox Sports graphics correctly, KU didn't make an outside shot (I mean even outside the paint) in the second half. And we have upperclassmen at all positions. Upperclassmen don't commit that many turnovers and allow that many steals.

Kansas congressman ‘hopeful’ that Clinton will be charged over email server

And what is the GOP going to do when Colin Powell announces that he finds nothing wrong with Hillary's actions? Powell may stay neutral, but the more the GOP pushes the envelope and if it appears likely that their crazies actually stand a chance, I seriously doubt that someone like Powell will risk that happening.

In a just world, Brownback would be a farm hand somewhere. In a just world most of the Kansas legislature would be selling insurance. You are going to have to face the fact that communication protocols haven't kept up with modern technology. I'm not surprised that short cuts are taken when time is a factor. The end result in all of this will be that future communications will all be driven underground. The goal will be to avoid future Eric Snowdens, Wikileaks and Judicial Watches.

GOP lawmakers signal desire to overhaul Kansas' K-12 schools

The idea that privatization saves money is a misconception. It assumes one or two things: that the publically paid worker is over paid, and/or that the public institution hires more workers than are needed, or that the workers aren't really working. But no one seeks to test this. Instead, privatization becomes just a means to underpay workers, often making them part time with few benefits (no state pension worries), and funneling the savings to a political ally. Funny how the Conservatives are all about local control of schools, except when the Conservatives want to control the money part. Sadly, Kansas is going to go the way of many other states where the tax payers no longer see themselves as citizens who have an obligation to all of their fellow citizens to promote, foster and keep a public education to educate the vast majority of their members. The issue is whether a public education system is a necessity and bedrock to our democracy, or just some other government service - good for some, but not needed by all.

Kansas contractors warn about impact of raids on highway funds

In a pure GOP world, we'd all be driving on toll roads. Except those around the country clubs - they'd be closed to "others."

KU professor who used n-word in class discussion is placed on leave

Except he's referred to Ted Cruz as one of the smartest students he's ever had. And Dersh can be a bit narrow minded on American-Israeli issues.
