Opinion: Entitlement mentality doomed Detroit

Exactly correct! GM was playing checkers while Toyota was playing chess!

Letter: Wasted effort

Our government is bought and paid for! Simple as that! If you have enough money, you make laws that work for you and your buddies.

Opinion: U.S. neglecting schools, colleges

I believe education is very important to the current problems our nation is now suffering from. I also believe that the majority of Americans are being "misled" through our nation's media. As many are aware that the media is "bought and paid for" by corporate America. Most Americans are disgusted with the politicians who "promise" to protect education and the environment. Seriously, why? I feel many are just disgusted with our nations leaders and those who "swear" to do better. They get elected and find out they cannot or will not change the system because it is "Broken". Just ask ten people on the street, " what do they know about the politicians who they vote for or endorse". See how much they really know about the people who they vote for. I agree with the article but something has to change in our "system". How is it that former politicians become CEO's? or former CEO's become politicians? Our system is broken and until that is fixed or improved, education and environment will continue to suffer!

Ramen bar set to open in downtown Lawrence

Lived on Oahu back in 1962 thru 1968 and I can honestly say that there is a big difference in "Cup of Soup" and what the Graces are trying to describe. My parents would take us to this little restaurant in town every weekend. It was nothing fancy but Ramen was the main attraction. My siblings and I would be served a bowl of these noodles. Fifty years later, I can still remember the soup! It had thin slices of chinese flavored red pork, green onions, sliced boiled eggs and shrimp in it. My brother and sister also still remember how good it was. After moving from the islands, we could no longer find it anywhere. Not at least with the same flavor and texture. I am excited to give the Graces place a try! Also, Kirin or Asahi Beer! Awesome! I hope the Graces have better luck in that location than the others who tried to make it there. Either rent is way too high, poor types or restaurants, or just a bad luck location. It seems like others just haven't had much luck there. I do hope the Graces have better luck because this is an awesome idea!

Letter: Repeal postal act

Well state your facts then! I guess first class mail volume has not gone down over the last decade either? I guess fuel has not gone up either? Also, explain to the public just how profitable it is to have carriers working mandatory overtime and working their days off is profitable and healthy for the employees. I don't think the public is this naive! Only reason,,,,really? Give us a break!

Letter: Repeal postal act

Brad states some good points. But, the 2006 PAEA is still only part of the problem. The 2006 PAEA definitely needs to be reassessed and tailored to today's current employee/retiree rolls. This would be a great start in saving the USPS. But again, this is only part of the problem and this alone cannot save the USPS. The 5 day delivery would also help the USPS out of the red. The combination of the two and "cutting upper management fat" would be a great start!

Letter: Guns don’t save

Don't know why everyone has their underwear "in a bind" over new gun laws. Try to buy ammo for the guns that you do own! HA ,,,,that's the problem!

How did you handle the KU men’s basketball loss last night?

It was really tough to "listen" to the game on the radio. I am proud of the Jayhawks but I am disappointed that even Lawrence fans could not watch the game on local TV unless you subcribe to pay TV. I guess college sports is slowly turning into "for profit only" business. It also seems to be partially how the brackets are set up? I hope college basketball doesn't keep heading in this direction. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Letter: USPS response

Yeah Wilbur, those complaints from the public will be addressed just like the carriers complaints. Goes right into the trash!
