Professor files lawsuit after KU denies him tenure

The article fails to mention a few things:

Romkes was approved UNANIMOUSLY by both tenure committees. Dean Bell overturned these approvals.
This is the first time in the history of the SOE that a tenure committee's recommendation was overturned.
This is the first time a professor at the university has EVER been denied tenure on the PI rule.

Lawrence school district to consider buying iPad 2s

I can see the advantages, but why not buy original iPads (as opposed to iPad 2). I don't see the benefit the new features would have in this situation? It seems an iPad would be just as capable at a fraction of the price.

Why are you blaming the republicans? If this miraculous idea is so damn amazing, why don't you push it to a democrat? Would that make it get it moving forward?

I realize you are trying to give part of the success back to the state and kudos for that, but if your idea is that great, get it out there, make a profit, and donate some proceeds back to the state (local schools would be a good start).

It sounds like YOU are the only one that thinks this is amazing idea and your political soapbox seems like the perfect place to lay the excuses. I don't see how you are doing anything to help energy issues by complaining about it instead of getting your idea out there. Don't attack other people simply because they aren't impressed by your idea.

CEO touts future of electric cars

An electric car is about as similar to a golf cart as a riding lawn mower is to a civic.

Go ahead and continue to be stuck in your old ways. Let me guess you still use a rotary telephone as well?
