Thousands attend Lawrence's 2018 Women's March to promote resistance, change

Usually, during marches, (i.e women's and science marches) people are reminded beforehand to pick-up litter or recycle, I don't know what happens out of Kansas. Did a person at the Lawrence march see, "people throwing down signs and leaving them or cups all over the ground?

Federal government shuts down; Dems, GOP blame each other

There are "real live" people who work for the government that will lose pay days and even lose their jobs in the government sector if this is a repeat of when this happened last time. It really is scary when you are hired by a government agency and the person signing off on your paycheck will not be able to come into work and you do not know when you will be able to work next. I don't know what the answer is, but blaming illegal aliens, certainly does not help. There is no one cause for this, it comes from political problems stacking up.

2014 speedy trial redefinition clogging Douglas County jail, district court

Stacy, many criminals are unable to learn from punishment so hard labor would not solve the problem. There are many people in there that probably most likely have anti-social personality disorder. Disabled people go to jail too, so hard labor would not work well for them. I do not know what the answer is.

This is a link that talks about people that fail to learn from punishment:

My concern is the change of the definition of a speedy trial. If a person cannot afford bail, then 150 days is a long time in jail. Just being arrested and being in jail does not mean a person has committed a crime, police, and detectives are human and can make mistakes, people lie in police investigations. There are social factors at work too.

Letter to the editor: A solution to jail crowding

Just FYI:: Here is a good paper from AU about the accumulation of things that add to the probability of criminal behavior.

Sorry for calling Bob a dunderhead.

Letter to the editor: A solution to jail crowding

Bob Summers, you are one of the most annoying polarizing dunderheads that is a regular in the comments section. I dislike seeing your comments but have for years. I don't look at them for 6 months or so...then look again, and you are still here. Government schooling has little to do with criminal behavior. Crime has a lot to do with poverty, but it is one of many factors. Could you do us a favor and not comment if you do not know what you are talking about?

5 people shot in downtown Lawrence; 3 dead

Young people are dead, families are grieving, it would be nice if people provided themselves a little time to find out what happened before swinging into issues and we do not even know if they apply. Family members and friends and bystanders do read the comments on here. Some of the people that were bystanders are probably traumatized. It is one of the saddest things ever heard: that someone was filming the death of a person in pain.

'Let Obamacare fail,' Trump says after GOP plan collapses

Bob, do I know you personally? How am I doing anything to you that destroys society? Avoid blanket statements. I hope you are kidding about a liberal gene. I am a 50-year-old lady that likes cats and dogs, I do not act or look scary.

Hobbs Park mural altered with anti-Trump message

What the heck is going on with people? Art was destroyed. You can call me a liberal and I guess that is true.
However, I am upset that some idiot vandalized a beloved mural in my neighborhood. It does not have to cause hatred and blaming. The person(s) who did this should be caught, fined and made to pick up the trash in all of East Lawrence to make this right.

18-year-old dead after reportedly pointing handgun at Kansas deputy

It looks like another point of why gun reform is needed. You can't screen out all drunk idiots.
