KU broadcaster David Lawrence to open West Lawrence sports restaurant and bar; update on Limestone pizza restaurant downtown

Don't forget the now politically incorrect Sambo's. Pancakes & coffee after a night of 3.2 beer

Lawhorn's Lawrence: The Days of Drag Strip Road

I cringed a little bit every time I read 1/4 mile. A small detail lost between the author and the interviewee, but it affected the pace of an otherwise nice piece of nostalgia.
I once called an editor over the reporting of a story that the writer obviously had no knowledge of the subject. In the style of voice Mr. Lawhon uses, which I enjoy, he kinda blew it this time

Opinion: Case more notable as tragedy than crime

Whatever. The whole thing was stupid. Two powers of stupid intersecting at the same point in time and space. Two powers of stupid who know exactly what happened.

If we treated one another in the fashion we are supposed to, in the fashion there is so much lip service to, two powers of stupid would have gone their own way.
Now a jury of peers disagrees with a prosecutor, and powers of stupid are back out on the street, urged on by a media powered by, well, you know

Letter: Not a ‘war’

Mr. Miller must have had a bad bowl of cereal with his newspaper that day.

First to ‘worst’: Lowly TCU stuns Jayhawks

There are a couple of previous coaches that would have pulled the starting five early in the first half. There is ready to play talent on that overfull bench, and there are some just happy to be there. One of my few criticisms of Coach: his rotation is too small . He owes no minutes to non-productive players, and there are guys sitting that want and need game exrerience. Why have those numbers if they can't contribute? Beyond the obvious of course.
Starting Ellis was not the roster change anyone expected. Someone needs to lace his meals with some gunpowder.

The climate. 650,000 years ago this piece of dirt was covered by 300 feet of ice. The earth, she's a churnin'

Letter: Climate priority

I wish I was a player too. I think I have some good ideas that could benefit humanity and make me a pile of money. All I need is a large infusion of somebody else's cash, like the rest of the players. It would help capitalize the front end of my projects and free up some risk. I won't share what my idea is just like Mr. Blevins, but trust me.

News and notes from Saturday morning's forum on proposed recreation center and Rock Chalk Park

I think the project is kinda going through a "dream phase" where people imagine how much they can get the public to accept. In phase 1. I disagree with using the facility to take some of the street events out of downtown. Most everyone gets some benefit from those events, and we don't have to pay double sales tax to help support "private" enterprise

Are there any advancements you’d like to see the country make in the next century?

If 75% think that is the greatest challenge, we are sunk. I expect a fourth to give an idiot answer, and was not disappointed
