Letter: Free speech

The Confederate flag has NO place in a state that was admitted to the Union as a "free state".

Opinion: Time to leave comic bias behind

Bart Johnson needs to get out more. I know lots of women who have done all the things he mentioned in his first paragraph. I myself have done many of them. The next time he is out building this Great Western Civilization, he might build in some equal pay for equal work, the right to nurse our children WHEREVER we are when they get hungry, and the right for our opinions to be judged on their merit and not by whatever clothing they wear or hairstyle they prefer, the right to make our own decisions over our own bodies. And remember, our civilization was not built by men alone.

What was your favorite things to do at recess as a kid?

Tether ball and four-square. I never see tether ball poles on any of the playgrounds any more.

How much extra would you be willing to pay for your electricity to come from a green source, such as solar or wind?

Why would you pay more for energy that costs less to producs.? Sounds like someone is trying to "cash in" heavily on a new product that takes us in the direction we should be going anyway. Good old American greed. It will be the end of all of us.

Really? I live in the area and onlynsee a patrol car parked at the fire station across the street occasionally. Why would they post up there at 2am?

Rejection of south Iowa Street shopping center sends confusing signals about future of south Lawrence growth

If they don't want it on South Iowa, how about Venture Park? There's a lot of empty space out here.

Letter: Late Night behavior

Jayhawks know better. I'm ashamed of the way some of us acted. I believe handing out tickets a few days ahead of the event seems the best way to resolve the problem. Only those who have tickets will show up and it would help with the traffic and crowd control. The idea of charging a fee and donating it to the local pantries sounds great, if we can find a way to lock out the scalpers.

Obamacare enrollment slow in Lawrence thus far

They are. It's MUCH easier to deal with the crowd from one state than 33.

Line-cutting, mobbing has KU Athletics reviewing Late Night admittance protocol

I wonder how many of those who rushed the doors brought food items to donate? Charging a minmal fee would be better. They could only sell as many tickets as the fieldhouse will hold and then donate the money to the food banks. Win-win.
