Stepfather of infant found in trash faces attempted murder, abuse charges

Dear God. I believe he should get life for having no regard for this baby's life. Prisons have their own heirarchy and this guy would not fare well. Same thing for the mother if she knew of this and did nothing to stop it. A couple of pigs.

50 slain at gay nightclub in Florida, worst mass shooting in US history

Why can't we all just live and let live? Stop hating someone because of how or whom they love! Those two men kissing were clearly more loving than the damn shooter!

KU chancellor vetoes student fee funding Multicultural Student Government

I think I'm remembering the quote correctly -- separate but equal is inherently unequal. The opinion of the Supreme Court in the ruling to desegregate schools in Brown v. Board of Education, 1954.

Court upholds tax evasion convictions of Atkins diet doctor from Lawrence

I stand behind Mary Vernon! She was my dr from 1984 until 2006. She helped me thru three pregnancies; the latter two very high risk. She knew when to call in the specialists.
I do not say that what she did should go unpunished. But that much time??? Absurd. We have drug runners getting lighter sentences.. I think sentencing her to work in a severely underserved area , and take her earnings until the tax debt is repaid would have been better. Patients who spent one appt with Mary either hated her or loved her. No in between. But there are many patients for whom she was the right dr; the right fit.

Why not put her to work as one of the prison doc's? She could do a lot of good while serving time.

Neighbors of homeless shelter to meet with officials to discuss problems, concerns

I would normally agree, except for the fact that Trey Meyer's law license being suspended was confirmed by a very reputable Kansas legislator.

Neighbors of homeless shelter to meet with officials to discuss problems, concerns

I do not believe it is right to cast an unfavorable shadow on all shelter residents due to the actions of a few. I do not claim to know what the long-term solutions are., I do think a start would help to get a director who is not an attorney whose license to practice law is suspended!
