Court selection

SettingTheRecordStraight, Kansas also has a quarter-time legislature--Congress meets year-round. Furthermore, at the Federal level the judges don't stand for retention like they do in Kansas. Our checks and balances system is different, but seems to work pretty well, overall.

I'd be OK (although not thrilled) with some Legislative confirmation process IF we eliminate the requirement judges stand for retention. After all, if the argument is that we ought to model the Federal system, let's adopt the whole thing.

Sidewalk seating

aquakej, the debate is over the city ordnance requiring a restaurant to make 70% of its sales in food to be eligible for outdoor seating. The ordnance intent is to exclude bars from this practice. The outdoor seating you see downtown is for those institutions that make 70% sales through food. When the City made an exception for the Pig, the other bar owners felt the ordnance is being enforced unequally, and are asking to be excepted as the Pig is. The discussion essentially boils down to "should we let bars as well as restaurants be allowed outdoor seating?"
