Justices side with Colorado baker on same-sex wedding cake; but biggest issue in case remains undecided

People's sexuality is as ingrained as their race. If the baker had turned down the would-be purchasers because they were Asian or black or Mexican or even white, we wouldn't be having this discussion. If you're going to offer a public service, then serve the public. That means everyone.

Tour of Lawrence's downtown cycle race in jeopardy after businesses object to street closures

July 1st is a Sunday. Most downtown businesses don't even open until noon on Sundays. The proposed street reopening time is 3:30 o'clock. I betcha the races would cause an uptick in Sunday commerce. I thought downtown Lawrence was supposed to benefit the whole community & not just DLA.

Tour of Lawrence's downtown cycle race in jeopardy after businesses object to street closures

I've only seen them once, but the street sprints were super exciting. I'll bet this year's planned downtown races would be equally exciting. I would think such activity would be a plus for downtown businesses even with temporary street closures.

Roberts, Jenkins predict congressional action on guns in wake of mass shooting at Florida high school

I understand 2A, Mike. It was just an example, but if weapons such as AR-15's aren't that popular or necessary for civilian activities like hunting, why do we need them? Just because some feel the abstract right to own any kind of weaponry is more important than common sense protections? Nobody wants to disarm the populace, but there are no rational justifications for permitting unfettered access to certain kinds of weaponry.

Roberts, Jenkins predict congressional action on guns in wake of mass shooting at Florida high school

No, the convo ought to begin with why civilians think they need to have weapons such as AR-15's. Great hunting weapon you say? If you can't shoot a flippin' deer without the use of a semi-automatic weapon maybe you should just shop at Aldi's for your protein.

Selfish needs and the rights to possess such weaponry take a back seat to the rights of LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Compromise is in order. There are enough bang-bang toys out there that firearms enthusiasts can do without some of them in order to pursue the greater good.

Longtime 23rd Street restaurant to close to make room for new wireless phone store

Haw! I remember Griff's burgers for a little as 12 cents and Sandy's burgers, where Biemer's BBQ is now, for 15 cents. Loved me some Sandy's fries, too. Thanks for the picture, Kurt.
