Editorial: Questionable leadership

My gosh, have you read any of those 46 "jobs-related bills"??? Like the "Jobs for America Act"? http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-11...

"Jobs-related" and/or fancy titles does NOT mean they create jobs or that they're good bills.

Martin Miller retrial: Pathologist said there is 'no way' Miller's wife died by homicide

Sorry, but it should NOT "just sound wrong" to you. The fact is that you HAVE to remember that MOST evidence is circumstantial. And you ALSO have to remember that juries aren't required to find someone guilty "beyond a shadow of a doubt".

Kansas panel advances campus group bill amid protest fears

Except that the Indiana law is NOT a version of the federal law. Even Indiana's governor has finally admitting that.

Kansas set to prevent poor from using aid for swimming pools, psychics

While I certainly agree with some of your comments and suggestions, I have to disagree with others.

Limiting being able to withdraw cash to $40 a month in arbitrary and capricious on your part. And, as you should very well know, a treat once in a while is a necessity of life. It gives a sense of quality of life. And stop assuming that "these people" don't know how to budget or don't know how to answer questions on a resume. Gimme a break.

How about the rent, though??? How do you get your rent money?

Saturday column: Brownback still has opportunity to move state forward

And, of course, the State had $238 million when he took office, which makes that deficit even worse.

Sorry, but that ranking was from this past August 12th. The state rankings in January 2015? Kansas didn't make the Top 10.

Opinion: Do voters want more Clintonism?

Huh???

Will described Hillary's health care deliberations in purposefully negative terms, but he certainly didn't accuse her of corruption because of them. So why do *you* think this was an example of corruption???

And taking what they believed were personal gifts with them when they left certainly doesn't automatically equate to corruption. Indeed, Will merely wrote "The White House chief usher thought many of the items were government property donated in 1993 to a redecoration project. Several donors of items said they were told this. Although the Clintons said that all the removed furnishings were personal gifts, they returned $28,000 worth of them."

Please note that even Will didn't claim that the head usher believed ALL the items were government property or donated in 1993...or that more than "several donors" said they were TOLD this. Also keep in mind that they were neither the first nor will they be the last First Family to take things with them.

So, sorry. While an argument for "corruption" in the second example *might* be made, what on earth about the first example equates to corruption??? My gosh. TONS of legislation is written behind closed doors. Do you honestly not know this???

Opinion: Do voters want more Clintonism?

Just why do you think that fact needs to be changed??? The more important fact is that we'll never know how *any* Member of Congress would have voted had s/he not been lied to, so let's not pretend Clinton's vote is something to get worked about over.
