13 Russian nationals, including Putin friend, charged with meddling in U.S. elections

I find the moral outrage interesting (and selective) that another country would attempt to interfere in our elections, considering our past history of interfering in other countries elections. For one small example, look at the US history in Central America, and the creation of Panama, which was assisted by US gunboats to keep the Venezuelan's away (what is now Panama was part of Venezuela).

Man gets 13 years for child-abuse murder of Shawnee baby

Agreed. However judges in this state are required (without special circumstances0 to follow the sentencing guidelines. Those are promulgated by the Kansas Sentencing Commission who had that power and authority delegated to them by the legislature. Usually if there is a problem with a sentence it can be traced back to the legislature in the final instance.

Police: Lawrence man shoots through neighboring apartment while clearing gun

With all due respect,who cleans a gun without making sure it is not loaded? It is more than education, it is basic common sense. If you cannot figure that out,then perhaps you should not own a firearm

Newly disclosed Facebook ads show Russia's cyber intrusion

And how much did Facebook and Google, etc. make off of these ads? It is one thing to decry them on the one hand, while pocketing the proceeds with the other.
Just a tad disingenuous.

Kansas tax collections continue to improve

It would be interesting to know what the estimates were before they were downgraded last year. Nonetheless, good news.

Where is the Rock Chalk Park bump? Sales tax numbers create questions about how much Junior Olympics visitors spent in Lawrence

May I suggest this is another sign that the way Rock Chalk was sold to the public and the reality are in different area codes.

GOP candidates for secretary of state respond to ACLU voting rights campaign

May I suggest that the Constitution was by the citizens, through their representatives, of a grant of power to the federal government and the constitution was not a grant of rights to the citizens. For example see the 10th amendment: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." It was initially a limitation on government - hence the Bill of Rights to make clear what the federal government could not do, based in part on the experience with the British.
AS to the underlying issue, I just flew on an airplane and had to show picture ID several times in order to get on the plane. While the present system for voter ID may not be completely appropriate and should be reviewed and adjusted for fairness (not a big Kobach fan), some form of verification is too burdensome to vote but not to get on an airplane?
