District orders changes to 8th grade slavery lesson

New House Speaker Merrick refuses Kansas Supreme Court chief justice's request to address Legislature

What else would Nuss expect from a Brownback legislature; they need only consider what is on their own narrow minds.

NIH announces diversity measures after KU professor's finding that black researchers receive fewer grants

Here we go again. Let’s give grants based on ethnicity, not merit. Plus they're trying to fix the perceived problem before they have all the facts.
