School board to consider issuing MacBooks to all high school students

While I appreciate the district trying to improve things for my kids, I think this may be a case of putting the cart before the horse. . .

Doesn't matter if you issue a child a MacBook, Chromebook, iPad, Android Tablet, etc., if they don't have any internet access at home. As a parent of a child at West who was issued an iPad this year, because almost everything is done within the district's Google space, unless you actually can connect to the internet reliably at home, it's nothing but a boat anchor outside of the classroom; an expensive one if you happen to lose it.

Address the issue of getting every child in the district reliable internet access from their home and it might make more sense.

Dakota Access oil pipeline opponents call for protests in 'last stand'

Unfortunately not. We will see lots of Hollywood types show up to bemoan and lament. Wesley Clark, Jr. will show up to again to apologize for the US Government's treatment of Native Americans and will disappear, yet again, in the middle of the night, leaving behind a whole bunch of vets who showed up with him after he promised to fund their expedition. It will be angry and loud, but probably not too violent, and in the end, nothing will change except some new land, this time privately owned, will be trashed, and a pipeline will be completed.

2 Kansas men spared prison in prosecution over state gun law

Would you not agree, however, that the lines between Federal and State laws have been blurred to the extent that one might not fully comprehend? Colorado, Washington and Oregon have laws allowing the sale, purchase and use of recreational weed, but it's still a violation of Federal law to do so. But it's okay to violate those laws, because the Fed won't do anything. Just not any gun laws. Because, you know, "gun nuts."

Or is it just so boring in the state of Kansas that the Federal court had to take this position up just to have something to do?

2 Kansas men spared prison in prosecution over state gun law

Agreed. One of them is a US Army veteran and I hope they can get further relief from the courts at some point.

Sens. Roberts, Moran unite behind DeVos for education secretary despite widespread criticism

Everytime I read Heckler's ALEC rants, this is all I can think of. . .

"'s a well known fact, Sonny Jim, that there's a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as The Meadows.

So who's in this Pentavirate?

The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, *and* Colonel Sanders before he went t**s up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee *beady* eyes, and that smug look on his face. 'Oh, you're gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!'"
