Armored vehicle, recently bought by Lawrence police with federal grant, appearing on city streets

This might've been good for Lawrence during the summer riots in 1970, but not now. Believe it or not, Lawrence was much smaller and more dangerous then.

Lawrence ranked second-worst-performing small metro area, according to new national economic index

As a former resident of Lawrence, it's sad to see stats like this, but I guess it comes as no surprise, considering the inept City Government/Chamber of Commerce that exists. All that sprawl for nothing. Living there in the 90's was a great time, and I left right as the city became economically stagnant. Now it's way overbuilt with too much retail and strip malls out in the newer west parts of town, and downtown is suffering. Last time I visited, I was appalled at the number of vacancies on Mass and can't remember seeing that many before. But like others have mentioned, I think Lawrence is more a reflection of what's happening all around KS, and Brownback's policies reflect that. Many of my friends are moving from Lawrence to neighboring states and I expect this trend to continue.

Court: Kansas Legislature's level of funding for schools unconstitutional

Problem is most of the intelligent, educated folks are moving away from Kansas, myself included. Hopefully, there are a few folks left in Lawrence to address this issue.

Lawrence gun sales climb after Connecticut school shooting

Judging by this article it seems like Lawrence has been invaded by lots of rednecks since I moved away. What a shame. I don't own a gun and really don't have any interest in them. You people realize this latest school massacre was allowed to happen because the boys Mom was a gun nut? Just saying....

Simons' Saturday Column: Commentators spur concerns about upcoming vote

Sorry to disappoint you but Kansas doesn't mean squat to the rest of the country and Mitt won't win the rest of the nation so cry me some Mormon tears come November.
