It's Whitewater for Clinton Lake. That makes it even worse. Is Kenneth Starr going to oversee the project?

"Conservative think tank" is an oxymoron.

Settlement agreement details efforts of Lawrence schools to keep racism investigation out of public eye; teacher denies wrongdoing

A minority will use words that have been hurled at them to take the power from those words. A white man using the same word is inflammatory bcuz white people have used the word to attack minorities. A white person can never use an attack word because the majority is in power and therefore the word is an insult. I can't believe you don't understand this but I'm willing to give you a pass for ignorance.

KDOT announces more traffic control measures for Kasold and SLT intersection

The point was to keep Kasold open for people coming in from the country. What the politicians created doesn't really do anything other than annoy. As it is, Kasold might as well be closed because it doesn't act as the conduit people wanted. Instead, it's a series of obstacles some high risk drivers are willing to take to get to the other side. And no matter how many signs they put up or solid lines they paint or even electronic signs they program, the real problem will remain because it was improperly addressed by politicians.

City: Oread hotel developer admitted to much of alleged tax scheme

Paul said it all. The dark lord's castle at the end of Jayhawk Blvd. looks about as inviting as a tax audit. And Fritzel, well, you knew who he was when you decided to do business with him.

Opinion: Progressive America must resist Trump

I'm not hysterical, Bob. I'm pissed. The difference is action vs. inaction. I will fight you until my last breath, Bob, because you are not American. You are a parasite that feeds on the body politic.

Opinion: Progressive America must resist Trump

Well, Bob. I guess Satan was on your ballot if you chose the lesser of two evils. Pardon me, but what did you have to lose if Trump ended up doing exactly what he said he would. My guess: not much. Me, well, I'll lose all of my rights. I'll be on the other side of the Apartheid line and don't pretend you didn't think it was possible. He said so. He chose Pence as VP. You had all the information. You decided to read the storyline that best fit your mindset.

Opinion: Progressive America must resist Trump

So tell me Trump voters,as a gay American, am I safe? I'm not crying. I'm asking. Did you vote to get rid of me, to make me silent? Are you going to hurt me personally or just wait for the government to do it? Am I safe in your America as we watch him choose his cabinet? Is this what you wanted all along? I'm curious. Do you hate me?

Letter to the editor: A Trump hope

Today I read that they will pass a Religious Freedoms bill on steroids as soon as they get in. Cool. Gay people will have to guess if they will get medical help or served at a restaurant. Good job, GOP. This does seem a lot more like the America I grew up with. Maybe history books will have pictures of all you heroes who voted Trump. You know, like the ones of the people holding the snarling dogs or the hoses on black people in the 60's. You'll be famous for how you saved America. Just like they are today. Congrats, GOP. You are a shameful group of cowards who can't tell the difference between propaganda and reality. Can't help but hope you get bit as hard as I will.
