Letter to the editor: Rude revolution?

I was at the Democratic caucus and saw none of what was described in this letter or the comments here. Granted, I was in the group outside, so maybe the description applies to what was happening inside the building. Outside the two groups were congenial. I remarked to a friend I wasn't sure which group to go to because either one worked for me. She agreed. One Clinton supporter passing out stickers stopped and talked with me about why she supported Clinton. I was in the line outside for an hour and never once saw a person being rude to a Clinton supporter. Guess it depends on your definition of rude. I rejected a Bernie sticker because I don't like wearing stickers. Was that rude?

Kansas tax collections nearly $54M below expectations in February; universities face millions in cuts

Yep. And when the school are shutting down, the Republicans will blame the Supreme Court justices for the mess. And maybe the Koch brothers and other billionaires will purchase the schools and privatize them. Isn't that the ultimate goal?

Kansas Republicans hold to hard-right stance; ACLU and League of Women Voters 'communists,' Kobach says

Thank you, Melinda. I saw this on Kobach's page before I read your comment here. I also reposted your comment on my Facebook page because I figure your comment and mine will be deleted from Kobach's Facebook page. Kobach already removed my husband's comments from yesterday.

Letter: Award questioned

You have no idea why he was given the award, so why are you calling the people who selected Clinton insane? Also, what are you categorizing as illegal activities?

Letter: Award questioned

I don't know if David Upchurch will see this, but I found it interesting he could enumerate Clinton's failings, but overlooked his accomplishments. Rather than list them all here, I refer you to this:

I was not a fan of Bill Clinton's when he was in office, but I learned to respect him later. If you had listened to his speech, you should have been inspired. His comments about Bob Dole were filled with praise and respect. You also would have learned what the two of them did for the families of people killed in 9/11. You would have seen a person who avoided partisan comments, but instead talked about positive things.

Perhaps if you had heard the speech you would know why he was given an award. I'm sorry you missed it. Then you might have been more informed before you wrote this letter.
