City to consider approval of proposed housing development southeast of Sixth and SLT, near Langston Hughes Elementary

Random misinformation? Maybe some of it, but the bit about them being jammed right next to the neighbor is absolutely true. Have you seen any of the new homes being built within the last 5 years? The distance between the house edge, and property line is the absolute minimum allowed by code. I'd have to go back and check the code, but if I recall correctly, that minimum is somewhere between 5' - 8'. So, that leaves a distance of about 10' - 16' from house edge to house edge. Not sure where you're from, but we're not in any shortage of space around here; that's "jammed right next to" in my books.

Residents asked to conserve water as drought persists

From your comment above, it sounded like you were suggesting that the entire city got 0.53". Most people would take that "we" in the comment to mean "we" as in Lawrence. Especially since you were referncing the rainfall amount reported by the main weather station in Lawrence at the airport.

I wish they would actually enforce a watering restriction, instead of making it just a suggestion. I live in a neighborhood where everyone has an irrigation system. Both of my neighbors - left and right - run their systems four times a day, every day! I am not kidding either. The frequent watering mixed with scalping their lawns has created nothing but weeds in both yards. I water once every 4-5 days, even in this heat, and I still have green grass.

Did you know that Lawrence is not a 1,000 x 1,000 sq. ft. plot of land? The little storms that came through Wednesday night were fairly small in size. I have a rain gauage, and it recorded 1.06". I am on the NW edge of town. The Lawrence Airport is North-central. Not everyone gets exactly the same amount as what's recorded at the airport. Same thing with wind/temp/humidity/etc.

You would think most people could understand this basic concept.

Kansas tea party illustration of Obama draws racism claims

Did someone say she was a horrible politician because she's a woman? Please fill me in, I don't watch Fox News.

But you see, that is the problem. They *are* pretending to not be racists. They say that it's just a "satirical" piece. Apparently they have a room temperature IQ, just like rockchalk1977.

For those that still can't figure out: the satire lies within a skunk stinking, like obama's politics stink (I agree with that assessment). That is where the satire ends. Period. Throwing in the black and white comment is pure racism. Is it protected under Freedom of Speech? Sure it is. But, don't make comments like that and then whine when people call you out on it. And if you're going to make statements like that, then have the sack to admit that you're racist.

So sad that you're not intelligent enough to see the difference between your scenario and the skunk one. 1977? Did you flunk out of high school, or even attend? My guess is no to the latter.

Thank you for your service, and opinion. I agree with you.

I'm sure Armstrong will be back on here with some smart-alecked remark back to you though.
