Letter to the editor: Good for city

So, if you had a spare bedroom in your house that you were not occupying, it would be alright with you if I just moved in? I bet you wouldn't think so.

Opinion: When lies become immune to truth

"Dems don't seem to care about character issues with their candidates as much as Republicans do." Now, that's a laugh!

Evidently, the memory of Richard Nixon for Armen has faded. Other Republicans I can think of that fall into category of those with questionable character include another Republican Warren Harding and the many scandals that took place during his administration.

Opinion: When lies become immune to truth

Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my own opinions.

Well, that explains why we keep electing Republicans in this state, even though they continue to do damage.

Police: Boy suffered fatal neck injury on waterslide

From the physics of how the ride functions, that would make sense.

Opinion: Justice shows poor judgment in comments

And what about some of the statements made in public by the late Justice Scalia? I don't see you saying anything about those.

Opinion: Texas may be losing battle for GOP

We can only hope that the same miracle happens in Kansas. Put all those "wing-nut" thinking Republicans out to pasture, starting with the top executive.

Two KU football players accused of stealing money to buy Jimmy John's, court documents say

Obviously they must have been apprenticing for the NFL (the National Felons League) when they got caught.

As usual, acting like the gadfly that needs swatting.

Local GOP candidates discuss guns, education standards at county forum

I believe the reporter did point out a few facts that some of the candidates overlooked. Pointing out these facts is not debating, unless of course the reporter is advocating for a position. I didn't see any indication that he was advocating.

Your Turn: Secretary shares Kansas ag stats

"as many Kansans know, the agriculture industry in our state is a much more vibrant and complex network of processing operations, wholesale businesses, manufacturing plants, and much more. From flour mills to pet food manufacturing, from horticultural services to farmers markets, from farm machinery operations to wineries, from veterinarians to bakeries, agriculture can be seen in every corner of every community across the state of Kansas."

Aren't we padding the statistics a little here? Where does ag stop and other industrial output begin? Manufacturing something in an industrial setting is not agriculture. Agriculture has to do with growing and harvesting crops for food or other purposes and animal husbandry. Veterinarians provide professional services to agriculture, but also to others. Bakers use the products of manufacturing that are derived from agriculture.

Let's at least be honest with the statistics and not be the example of the aphorism about statistics.
