River City Jules: Men, privates don't belong in public

Getting back to the original point of the editorial - yes it disgusting and assinine that a congressman would 1) be such a pervert and 2) be stupid enough to publicize his perversion. These are the people that are making critical decisions for our country? Deciding what health care I should have? Like him or not, Leonard Pitts had an awesome column yesterday - pointing out the fact that he couldn't remember the last time a female politician was involved in a scandal like this. Can we please get someone in Washington who knows why they are there.

Building bombshells: North Lawrence photography studio rebuilds the female glamour shot

Oh no, glamour shots were so tacky in the 90s and probably not something that should be recreated. Just say no!

City Commission grants Lawrence Community Shelter one-year permit extension

Is the old Salvation Army building vacant? Why can't the "wet" shelter relocate there and keep the other one dry. It makes no sense to have those two populations mixed, especially with children there.

Town Talk: Downtown Lawrence hires director; Barnes & Noble to Borders?; Pink Box bakery looking at changes; downtown lighting overhaul

What were the hours of the pink box? I stopped there on 3 separate occasions, in the middle of the day, and it was closed every time. Bizarre business model...

Town Talk: Ninth and N.H. incentives not forgotten; Treanor still working on new downtown offices; $360,000 for library art?

Most of the beautiful art work in history wasn't taxpayer funded

Town Talk: Ninth and N.H. incentives not forgotten; Treanor still working on new downtown offices; $360,000 for library art?

This is the stuff that has to stop. People are scraping by paycheck to paycheck, the state cuts support for education, the severely disabled and mentally ill and yet we still entertain the idea of spending hundreds of thousands on "art" (of which most of the pieces I've seen around the city would barely qualify). When are we going to get our priorities straight?

Coalition to fight photo-voter ID proposal

I've always thought it was bizarre and pretty stupid that you don't have to show an ID to vote in this state. Who would have a problem with this ? (except of course those who profit from voter fraud)

Survey project on east half of proposed South Lawrence Trafficway extension to begin Tuesday

That was a cruel headline, I actually thought for a moment that they were going to start building it.

Blacks struggle with 72% unwed mothers rate

'Children of unmarried mothers of any race are more likely to perform poorly in school, go to prison, use drugs, be poor as adults, and have their own children out of wedlock."

That's the problem Butterflies, I hope you're joking.

Not a problem

Bill, how do you think those European cities got to the point of having "hordes of professional beggars roaming the streets"? It is because incompetent governments were too afraid to enforce local codes. Hopefully, Lawrence can raise the bar a little and not get to that point. There are lots of legitimate ways you can help people down on their luck that don't involve giving an alcoholic the last dollar he needs to buy another pint.
