Letter to the editor: Guns among us

Yes, the paper was very distrusting of the federal government. Thanks for the link. I will read it.

Opinion: Time for a reboot on school funding

It’s time to look beyond the politics, and work on substance. The writer has described how silly the state has been in its proposals to the state supreme court. In fact, the state legislature tried to discredit and defund the court. It’s almost like the state legislators do not understand how to fund effective programs.

Throwing money at the schools does not help. We cannot go back to the old funding system. It’s outdated. We have to set up a new funding system for education based on curricula and equity.

Very good summary and focus by Michael Smith.

Letter to the editor: Guns among us

Yes, this was a great read. If I read it correctly, Federalist 46 described the federal and state military systems, including police, as organizations that protect citizens rights. The states represent citizens better than the federal government. Military members are appointed at all levels. There is no mention of individual rights other than representation.

Now, I am a neophyte in U.S. history. Federalist 46 was interesting to read. How do the Federalist Papers fit into our history and governance?

House Republicans advance tax overhaul; entire Kansas delegation supports it

I'm game for corporate tax cuts, but not personal tax cuts. There's no justification. Personal tax cuts will not stimulate the economy.

Tom, I interpreted Josh's comments differently. Regardless of the issue, most of the Kansas voters do support our representatives. Lawrence really is in a bubble. Opinions here are not shared elsewhere in the state. The only time I can recall common ground is when Greg Orman, an independent, ran for senator.

Kansas agencies seek $274 million in new funding next year

Should we call these budget requests “new funding” or “restored funding”?

Editorial: Zuckerberg’s bizarre KU visit

Mark Zuckerberg is young, intelligent, and eccentric. Why would we expect him to act in some average way?

Letter to the editor: Take action on guns

How and why did the right to bear arms become a big issue? I had no opinions before all this?
