Kansas delegation holds position of making government funding contingent on delaying Obamacare

Better check the following links on the vote for the Affordable Care Act. It was approved by a Democratic controlled Congress. I did not see one Republican vote for the act. I hardly call that bipartisan. Check it yourself. (House vote) (Senate Vote)

Former Westar chief, wife give rural Lawrence farmstead to Salina-based Land Institute

The house is valued by the County at over $600,000. The remaining value for farm land is high, but considering the industrial uses east and west of the site, not unreasonable. A very generous donation in my opinion.

Letter: KU’s loss

Whining is posting this letter in response to his wife losing her job. This appears to be a good response to the editorial and puts some fact into what the editor was saying. KU needs to meet the needs of all students, not just the ones who use the brick and mortar facilities provided by KU.

Leader of Eisenhower memorial effort discusses embattled plans in talk at Dole Institute

The Eisenhower family needs to back off. They are not building the memorial, it is being built by a grateful nation. I am sure Abraham Lincoln would say his memorial was to gaudy if he could see it himself.

"The commission's plan was questioned. Many thought that architect Henry Bacon's Greek temple design was far too ostentatious for a man of Lincoln's humble character. Instead they proposed a simple log cabin shrine."
Wikopedia quote.

Eisenhower's library in Abilene expresses his simple upbringing. Simple design in his simple hometown. But a tour inside the museum says much more.

Brownback signs into law bill establishing adult stem cell research and treatment at KU Medical Center

I am happy to see the legislature aprove the creation of the stem cell center, but I also figure if THIS legislature is going to approve money, it will be at the expense of existing programs already in place at KU. They are already considering cuts with next years budget.

Editorial: Service optional?

I hope the legislature remembers the last big corporation that made promises to Kansas, Boeing.
We all know how that worked out.

Editorial: After the fact

Could somebody identify the bill they are referring to so a person could read it?
