Letter: Professor supports post-tenure review

In such a review process you discuss rewards for those rated well, but what do you propose happens if someone is not rated well? For this plan to work, some tenured professors would have to be fired, which would obviously be a mess. Do you think we should have a tenure system in the first place? If so, what are the advantages of having a tenure system with review as opposed to no tenure system.

KU student sues Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, alleging underage drinking led to head injury

permitting underage drinking is obviously illegal, as is consuming alcohol if you're a minor

Census rejects city's appeal of 2010 population totals; new Census numbers for Douglas County show growth slowed in 2012

Agreed. I think people are starting to get fed up with the obvious influence of local businessmen on the city commission and the series of poor decisions they've made over the last two decades.

1 of 2 winning Powerball tickets sold in Kansas City area

If that was the game there wouldn't be as much interest and the jackpot wouldn't be as high. With less people buying there would be less possible millionaires and that is what we get from other smaller lotteries already...

Haskell’s athletic programs put on probation through 2014

I met someone last week who grew up on a Navajo reservation in Arizona. He said that conditions were horrible because the rations they are given ($200/month, $2400/year) doesn't even come close to the current definition of a poverty income (about $20k). We're talking about the poorest 1%; wherein alcoholism and corruption is rampant. They have the highest school-dropout rates - even relative to poor areas of major cities. If someone has a job, they're going to travel a long way to get there. It's impossible for them to build credit because they do not 'own' their own land - which is necessary for having collateral and building credit to. It's great that you apparently overcame the conditions in which you grew up, and it's hard for me to respond to that without knowing more about your childhood, education, and what your present reality is. Similarly, could you please reconsider next time before speaking out about people that you do not know much about? If all you cite is free healthcare and education as reasons for not feeling bad for them, you're way behind my friend...
