Court upholds expulsion of KU law student over criminal past

I would bet that the application stated very clearly and directly that answering questions inaccurately and lying on the application could result in denial or expulsion. I am betting he was fully warned and his desires to enter overrode the truth.

KU hospital among 11 penalized in Kansas

I am sorry, but when I went to school many years ago the word ":honored" was not a synonym for punishment. Who writes the headlines? Some one who has not read the article? Honored by being given a penalty? Like Lincoln was "honored" by John Wilkes Booth????

Lawrence man shot by police in June 'on downward spiral' after latest arrest

Sorry to bloviate, but I get tired of the common statement here and elsewhere, that we excuse our errors by saying, "I made a mistake." This is not limited to Mr. Ortiz but society in general. A mistake is getting whoe milk instead of getting 2%, or picking up the wrong set of keys. This (and the millinso of others) are intentional acts - lets (and I include myself in this) have the guts to take responsibility. Not in the way most "take full responsibility" these days, which means, "I said i am sorry and took responsibility - now let's move on and not worry about the ramifications of my actions." Sotrry to be a cranky old man, but holy cow, batman. Let's get closer to reality.

Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault: Oh, thank you very much.
Captain Renault: Everybody out at once!

AP reporter to join Brownback campaign staff

Fascinating how the incestuous relationship between the press and elected officials continues (regardless of party affiliation). I am sure he will continue his "unbiased" positions and reporting . . . . He has every right to take the job (as did Jay Carney when he left Time Magazine, and Tony Snow, among others), but does it pass the smell test? I think not.
