Saturday Column: U.S. needs president who can break the gridlock

"Almost 50 percent of this nation’s adult population relies on some form of government subsidy..."

Mr. Simon. I had not read this statement before. What is included in the 50% of the adult population on some subsidy?

Kansas House vote shows weak support for constitutional amendment on judicial selection

"..evidence that the system produces a court that does not reflect the values of the state."

It never occurred to me that the court system would reflect the values of the state. That seems like a rather emotional basis for legal decisions. It makes more sense to reflect the laws of the state.

Editorial: Questionable comparison

Most neighborhoods in Lawrence have been challenged by increased traffic. The traffic breaks down the fabric of residential areas. Engineering solutions are not necessarily in context. These areas need updated comprehensive planning that includes engineering solutions.

Kansas senators consider firearms nondiscrimination act

..."engaged in the lawful commerce of firearms or ammunition products" from discriminatory practices by service providers such as banks, payment processors or insurance companies."

Don't insurance companies use actuarial data to determine level of risk? If the data indicates a high risk of loss in these businesses, should insurance companies be required to offer insurance? Actuarial science is discriminatory, in a sense, but the studies are used to determine business supported business decisions. That's how insurance rates by age, grades, miles, and all kinds of stuff are decided.

What factors do banks and payment processors use? Are we confronting prejudice or data supported business decisions?
