Saturday Column: How does tie to ‘crazies’ impact Lawrence’s image?

When I saw "crazies" and "Lawrence attracted national and world attention this week" my immediate thought was that it was just another story to add to Kansas's laughing stock reputation thanks to the antics of the knuckle draggers running the state and those who voted them there, as in "What's the Matter With . . . " so I was disappointed, but not at all surprised, to see what Mr. Simon was really complaining about. But come on, any town, anywhere, will have artists and characters who are not every last person's cup of tea, but that's no reason for a newspaper editor to write an entire column insulting the place and everyone in it. He should save himself and the rest of us all the trouble and just print one liners like, "Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!"

Letter: Recognition due

This may be the best letter to the editor ever. And she does indeed.

Lawrence man aims to pay it 'forward' with new foundation

Heartwarming story. Best wishes to everyone involved.

p.s. Giles Bruce, Sorry to be *that* person but I gotta tell you this needs proofreading/editing.

Letter: Wetlands not ‘vacant’

Well put. Thank you. I didn't see his article but "vacant ground" is indeed a loaded, uninformed, and culturally-insensitive way to describe the area. The majority of our national parks and forests are "vacant ground," thank goodness.

Letter: Game is rigged

I read the letter on the Green edition and would not have read it if I had to answer a stupid advertizing question. Really, LJW, do you need to add your own stumbling blocks to the actual reading of newspapers?

As for the letter: It is a well written and accurate assessment of much of what is (has been allowed to go) wrong in this country for a while now.

Letter: Sacred wetlands

In other words, you know nothing other than what you think you can see from looking at a satellite photo. That's always the perfect time to take a stand on a complex and long standing issue. Bravo.

KU grad student wins national fellowship to help young kids deal with intense stress

Think of a world where even a portion of the resources and emphasis that's so effortlessly placed on sports or entertainment or war was diverted to "helping kids, or people, learn those skills and heal from whatever it is that they’ve faced" . . . everyone would benefit. Good work, Ms. Byers! And thank you.
