Letter: Rep. responds

It would be a mistake to paint everything someone supports with the same brush just because you disagree with some of the things they support. I would think that as many people complain about the gridlock in congress, there would be some support for a representative tackling problems in a bipartisan manner.

Letter: Conservative climate

Three questions for you Bart:
Who do you mean by "we"?
If 1 degree C of warming reduces wheat yields by 6%, what is the reduction for 5 degrees, and how many less people can you feed with that?
What do you know about wheat that the botanists at K-State do not?

I'd be interested in hearing your reason for flying a Confederate flag.

Because that is what it means to the majority of people, it is wrong for government entities to fly it as other than a museum piece, but the value of individuals being allowed to express ideas, even stupid or abhorrent ones, is more than the harm caused by the expression of those ideas.

It's why we allow anyone to shout whatever they want from a street corner. But, at the same time, allowing people to shout whatever they want on school grounds would be disruptive to purpose of why those grounds exist.

I think the administrators already have covered shouting in the halls. I'd leave conversations between individuals alone.

The flag is a symbol. It means different things to different people. To me, it represents a period in the past that should never have happened, and those that fly it are romanticizing a history that was never what they want it to have been, are actually promoting racial superiority, or are promoting some other notion I don't understand, but it does not mean the same thing to everyone.

While this country continues to struggle with equality, racial, sexual, et cetera, I don't think that the cause of equality is advanced by restricting the freedom of speech.

I'd leave well enough alone; it sounds like the administrators are already dealing with things that are disruptive to a learning environment.

Kansas gay rights bill sparks debate in legislative committee

"Our concern is that once you add sexual orientation that basically protects every individual in the state"

Trying to figure out why protecting everyone equally under the law causes concern.

KU team solves century-old Kansas geological mystery

I'm going to say yes and no. Yes, because I think those kinds of sediment deposits happen in large bodies of water, and no, because I think you are thinking of another geologic period entirely.

I wonder if the deposits are coincident with the Permian-Triassic extinction.

Letter: Common good

Ah yes, James Taylor, serial misrepresenter of information. James will read a research article describing how instead of a region experiencing a lot of small fires, that region has experienced a smaller number of very much larger fires, with the total acreage burned being much larger. Then he will turn around and write a newspaper article telling you that the scientists were all wrong about the increased risk of fire because the total count is down.
