Do you think Kansas Rep. Virgil Peck should resign?

Of course not - I think its important that our elected officials make vicous racist statements and then claim that he's talking like any Southeast Kansan. Thanks for perpetuating the stereotypes.

If I were in his district, I would demand his immediate resignation. Four of my family's best frineds are from his district - they are intellegent, thoughtful, and would never say anything like that, even as a joke.

Un freaking believable. He sounds like a jerk, and I'm not joking.

Have you ever tried to give up caffeine?

Just curious, why did giving up caffeine help with weight loss? I get my caffeine mainly through black coffee - didn't think there were a ton of calories there. I'm not giving it up, even if it was the equivilant of drinking a dozen glazed doughnuts.

Lawrence attorney Scott Miller to replace retiring Judge Randy McGrath on municipal court bench

Although time will tell, I believe this was a very good hire. I don't know him persoanlly, but reading about his qualifications, and having practiced in Municipal Court a bit, I think he'll be great (I hope he's ready for all of the late night on call duties). Good luck Mr. Miller.

Do you think newborns in the state should be genetically tested to identify the child’s father?

This is not something that should be mandated in every birth, really kind of a stupid idea. Aren't there more important issues facing our state at the moment?
