Kansas Senate passes bill requiring university prospectuses

The data would not be easy to collect. There's the not so minor issue of the right to privacy. Grads do not have to answer the questions or even report where they are/will work. The employers will not release the information.

Saturday Column: U.S. suffers loss of honesty, integrity, leadership

"Could one of the reasons be that the public is being given more and more evidence on which to question whether these political leaders are telling the truth?"

The public might be given more evidence than in the past. The public has definitely been given more misinformation and conjured up rumors. Have we already forgotten NBCs Brian Williams and FOXs Bill O'Reilly? Include journalism on your list. And, all those tiresome spam emails. The public is reacting to an incredible amount of misinformation.

Letter: Pavilion praise

"Anti" votes are counterproductive. Voters should want a representative government that includes neighborhoods, businesses, charities, services, whatever. It's the lack of balance that causes mood swings on our city commission. We were fortunate to have fourteen candidates to choose from. Now, let's make the best of it by voting for a balanced and representative city commission.

Soden, Rasmussen, Boley take top three spots in Lawrence City Commission primary

In the past, candidates with the highest funding tended to do well in the polls. It would be interesting to compare campaign funds, number of votes, and votes by precinct.

I have a theory that the Journal World leveled the playing field with its summaries of each candidate. The candidates were able to state their positions clearly without huge expenditures.

Turn out at the polls was only 8.7%. If the primary election were held in the fall, would the turnout be greater?
