US Sen. Roberts' 'Frozen' ringtone creates hearing hysterics

Couldn't have happened to a better guy. His record of legislative non-attendance is embarrassing, and so is his attention to detail.

Cyclones storm back to beat KU in Big 12 title game

I am so disappointed to see my team, which has gathered itself and gritted out several recent wins, wilt over an opposing team's run. Too late in the season to regulate/counter this. Tonight's game should have been KU's, but I give huge props to ISU for their perseverance.

Brownback budget cuts K-12 education, holds higher education funding flat

Clownback's lies and treachery continue to harm taxpayers, educators, and students. The legislature, under his ' leadership' continues to renege year after year on its legal obligation to fund public schools and KPERS violating the state constitution, yet voters continue to vote for him and his cronies. What's wrong with this picture? Wasn't it Einstein who defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results??

Brownback calls to repeal school finance formula in State of the State address

Clownback's idea to change the law rather than to obey mandated funding to schools is typical for him and shameful for the people who elected this jerk, allowing the legislature to continue reneging on its obligation to fund schools and undermining the entire state education system. Who loses?? Taxpayers, educators, and students. (Who's left--uh, legislators??)

Lawrence middle school teacher's selfless act inspires others

Who would expect a building colleague as a donor match? What a blessing and amazing gift. Congratulations to Mike and Scott, who are both terrific teachers and even better human beings. Best of health and success to you both; your Central family and many others send their best positive energy your way.

Trading barbs with Bill Maher

More interesting and more factual than anything Brownback and his toadies have to say.

State panel wants more information before ruling on Obama’s ballot eligibility

Anyone who pays attention knows stupidity and ignorance exist throughout state government in the Brownback regime, starting with him (and Kobach, who spends most of his time in AZ). This is another outrageous and not even thinly veiled attempt at voter suppression. Apparently there is nothing illegal they won't try.

Police respond to gunshots at former chief’s house

There are two common themes in these comments: first, that a law was broken and what that law says; second, that many object to the preferential way this was handled, in direct contrast to those who have recounted their experiences, and in contrast to the way most everyone else has been or would be treated after breaking this law.
