Satirical: "A more civil discussion? You mean like Prof Guth's comments? Are they kidding themselves?

Good-bye LJWorld."

Yes, like Guth's "civil" comments; that's what we should ALL be aiming for!

City to consider banning couches on porches

snitty, very true. Much fabric and many, many items that consumers purchase are coated with flame retardant chemicals.

Prepare to relax, savor at the most intimate restaurant in Lawrence

What a unique idea for a business. Are they very expensive or about the same price as eating at any other good eatery in Lawrence?

Community Mercantile outlasts competition and changing marketplace

grisgris, I agree. Shopping at N.Grocers is a very pleasant experience. We've gotten some of the best tasting produce there, over and over. Their produce dept. is not very big, but the quality makes up the difference.

For years, we shopped at the Merc and most of the employees have always been respectful and polite to us. I wish that people would not dismiss the ones here who have not been treated respectfully by the Merc employees. Just because it did not happen to you, doesn't mean it didn't happen! Their employee who was extremely rude to me was the rotten apple that spoiled the barrel for me. I have NEVER in my life been treated so rudely by any other sales clerk at anytime, anywhere. Given my age, that's a lot of positive shopping experiences. I probably should have complained to management, but I didn't. I don't think it would have made any difference.

Community Mercantile outlasts competition and changing marketplace

When Wild Oats come to town, the Merc waged a “be loyal to the Merc” campaign, instead of a more fair approach of lowering prices and making positive changes to keep customers. I was loyal to the Merc for many years, until a long time employee in the Merc supplement/lotions department was extremely rude to me w/o cause nor justification. Then, I switched to Natural Grocers where ALL the employees are genuinely friendly and helpful.

Bicyclist killed in accident on South Lawrence Trafficway identified as 29-year-old Lawrence woman

I think there would be less tragedies like this if children, and all people really, were taught that even though the law states that pedestrians have the right of way, they would be better off to assume that in reality, it is best, as a pedestrian or bike rider, to aspect the car to have the right of way. Basically, never cross a street when it says walk, when you see a vehicle barreling toward the intersection. Don't assume they are going to obey the traffic light. Don't assume they are going to stop for you. Don't assume that right on red turners are going to yield to you, etc. etc. Heads up at all times when it comes to 150# people vs. a 2 ton piece of metal.

Ottawa El Mezcal restaurant closed by Immigration and Customs officials

That is true, but this was THE SALTIEST food I've EVER eaten out! Way over the top & unnecessary.

Ottawa El Mezcal restaurant closed by Immigration and Customs officials

we tried El Patron there in Baldwin last week. After eating there and looking over the menu, I suspected it was affiliated with the El Mezcal bunch. The food was standard, mediocre typical mid-western Mexican fare, the only difference, is that it was THE SALTIEST food I have ever had while eating out. Terribly unhealthy, based on that fact alone.

County offers dust treatment for residents on gravel roads

i agree. we get loads and loads of gravel and then when we get a measly 2 inches snow, 2 road graders come flying by & throw a huge percentage of the gravel way into the ditch, never to be recovered or used again. morons!
