Editorial: Gun grandstanding

I would appreciate some coverage about the possibility of a conflict of interest. Now that Kobach got the state law passed, it has come out that he is a part of a company that plans to manufacture Kansas guns. Do you suppose he was thinking of that BEFORE the law was passed? Yeah, right.

Amid election-year criticism on school funding, Brownback touts career and technical education

What some people do not realize is that Brownback's touted program has caused some secondary schools to discontinue the programs they had in technical education. Why not fund public school programs? I'm supportive of such education for high school students, but I do not think Brownback nor legislators have a very clear view of what teenagers are like. Closing down tech ed programs at the secondary level gets rid of some teachers. Perhaps that is a part of the Brownback/Koch vision for Kansas?

City commissioner proposes tax increase to fund bicycle, sidewalk projects in 2015

Some of those baby boomers aren't physically capable of riding a bike around the city. I do not think the biking plan is being made with retirees or baby boomers in mind.

Brownback signs school finance, tenure-repeal bill

That's an important point! You are missing it. A teacher is now muzzled, fearful for his or her job. And if a teacher is not being "tender" enough with a parent's child, then the parent can file a complaint. What can a teacher do when he or she is not treated "tender" enough? Not much any more.
