Have you ever tried to give up caffeine?

Tougher than licking nicotine or booze. I did it...but decided it was better to buzz than not.

Which sporting event would you like to attend most?

Borders store in downtown Lawrence to close by end of April as part of bankruptcy; 27 to lose jobs

For those who always just loved to go to book stores and record stores, if only for the entertainment value, this is sad. Borders was a nice place, the employees were nice and they had more selection than anywhere else in town. This is mostly a casualty of the internet. Love the opportunities that our "new media world" provide but miss the way things used to be sometimes.

Kansas House committee considering bill that would impose statewide restrictions on adult stores

Well, I was expecting this but here they go. Probably pass too. If they think this is going to have a positive effect on "community morality," they are even bigger idiots than I thought. Shut down the clubs and you'll only encourage more "off-premises" activity and it won't be bowling. Why can't any of these people just "leave us alone" to live our lives? They claim to be pro-freedom but then they do this. Bleeping bleeps!

How much do you think the city should fine people who don’t clear their sidewalks?

They can start fining people as soon as the streets are cleared and their own sidewalks and crossings are clear. That should be about April by my count.

Overnight low of minus 15 might be record

Pretty sure it was colder back in December of '89.

Do you think local public schools should extend the school year to make up for recent snow days?

Year round boarding school is the way to go. Keep all those crazy kids out of town!

Bill Self clears Kansas senior Mario Little for competition

Oh good Lord, thank goodness none of the perfect people who post here have ever done anything stupid in their lives. Those of you have never gotten drunk and made a mistake that at least could have gotten you in trouble, please cast the first stone. Everyone deserves a second chance.
