Your response, Scott, tells a great deal about your maturity.

Editorial: Experience counts

Neither does the Topeka Capital-Journal. It supports Brownback, but I understand that some since Brownback's wife is of the Stouffer family that once owned the paper. I think some members of that family might still have ties to the paper. The Journal-World tends to support Republicans no matter what. It might have been nice if the paper had just skipped supporting anyone rather than writing this bunk.

Editorial: Experience counts

I am not really surprised by the Journal-World publisher's stance since he supports Republicans no matter who else exists in politics. That the publisher calls for one political party to dominate both houses of Congress diminishes his opinions. What we need are lots of ideas that differ and people with those ideas to work together to find a common ground. I'm sick of people so narrow-minded they can only equate politics to some kind of game with two sides fighting it out. I think it smacks of low intelligence.

Democrat slams plan giving Kansas control of Medicare

Brownback wants the money in Kansas and under his control so he can "borrow" from it like he did the Kansas Transportation funds.

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.

Cigarette tar/Goop in your hair? This sounds ridiculous.

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?
