Editorial: Sobering report

Yup. I would LOVE Dolph to tell us truthfully all about the "sound, respectable retailers who would employ thousands and pay millions in taxes". But I won't hold my breath.

Does he truly not know that retail wages rank at the bottom of the income scale??? So it doesn't matter how many we have. The pay still SUCKS.

Or does he truly not know that those "thousands" (yeah, right, Dolph) of jobs are not thousands of NEW jobs but, rather, jobs simply moved from one set of retailers to another?

And has he truly missed the negative aspects of the constant 'give us millions in tax breaks over decades or we won't come/build/hire here" requests we've been getting? Promises of job creation that NEVER happen...with no penalty to the businesses who got the tax breaks BASED on those claims?

Does he really think we should cave in to even more of this nonsense???

Well, those were stupid questions. Of course he knows. Because he truly doesn't care that giving away the farm in order to buy a couple of chickens is *NOT* a good deal for the farm long as *he* isn't the farm owner and *he* gets a farm for those two frickin' chickens.

But, hey. Dolph almost hit my car last year because he apparently didn't think a stop sign applied to *him*. After all, while there was a vehicle stopped in front of him (the vehicle whose turn it was), the fact that *he* had also stopped behind it surely meant that he, too, got to drive right through the stop sign without taking turns at the 4-way stop.

Letter: Not 'marriage'

Actually,you need to do some more research about marriage because marriage as a contractual relationship long precedes religious wedding ceremonies and the role (if any) of churches.

But you do make some good points.

Don't you mean "Tradition, Mr. COOK...", not Mr. Herbert???

Gay marriage now legal in Kansas

If what you vote for is unconstitutional then, yes. I call it fair.

That's a quote from St. Augustine. And, last time I looked, there is no Book of Augustine in the Bible. Or did YOU forget *THAT* one???

As the SC should. After all, just because something is voted for by the majority of the folks who bothered to vote for doesn't make it Constitutional.

If the city had $22.5 million, what would be a good idea to do with it?

Letter: God’s wrath

Uh...and you don't think that your "I think that if Jesus knew that there are these kind of zealots advocating for his kingdom, he would despair" isn't a perfect example of "religious flubdubbary"...why???

And the purpose of your "Mr. Kreicker (Who??.....hmmmm) " remark was...what??? So what if the guy's a Unitarian Universalist? Were you trying to be clever? Trust me. It didn't work.

Letter: Ban lifted

My husband and I are *also* awaiting this destruction with not-even-close-to-being-baited breath :-)

Amazing, isn't it. Two guys or gals we don't even know getting married to each other are, somehow, going to "destroy" our happy decades-long marriages. Some folks apparently have *very* vivid imaginations. Yeesh.

Congratulations. I just wish my friends Bill and Greg were still alive to see this.
