Column: Naadir Tharpe jolly good chap

I agree with the 5/13 letter to the editor. This piece is a mean-spirited and insulting non story and I'd say an apology is in order.

County agrees to fund food stamp-farmer market program

Farmer's markets are a bit different from the markets you may be used to. While all the vendors would be happy to be better compensated for all their hard work and devotion, they didn't go in to it simply because of the potential income. I'm no economist, but it seems to me that prices of local food has gone down as demand goes up, as part of the income generated goes back into production infrastructure.

I had no idea. This is very disturbing. What the hell, KU?

Your turn: Former editor earned community’s respect

I worked in the J-W mail room (1978-1981) while attending KU and from even a very little interaction with Mr. Mayer I remember him as a dignified, kind, and thoughtful person. Those of us piling inserts into a machine and counting the papers that went into bundles were every now and then reminded by another higher up fellow how unimportant and easily replaceable we were. I have no similarly fond memories of him.

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.
