Lawrence ranked second-worst-performing small metro area, according to new national economic index

Economic growth is not a clear indication of peoples' happiness. I see happy people in Lawrence, I see people more concerned about each other than about bringing in giant corporate "job creators".

That was in the KU Dining section. Kind of funny. Making all these cuts to their employees. One meal for a ten hour shift, instead of two, and this in a dining hall. More expensive health insurance, being shorthanded because it takes three to six months for them to hire someone, 2 percent raises. But, yet, new basketball courts, hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation...and that's just to the Chancellor. Ah well, at least their helping out the T.
