What's your favorite poem?

"Jabbrewocky" by Lewis Carroll

And this one that really speaks to me:

"We Read" by Kevin Rabas

At the Olpe Chicken House behind glass there's a copy

of Ken Ohm's new book Ducks across the Moon.

An old woman and her husband cane their way

to the counter, pay with cash, the bills

old and crumbled and green, and ask about the book.

The kid behind the counter, who looks like the town

quarterback, says, "I didn't write it, annoyed,

"Heck, I don't know." And the old couple walks on,

go home, along the way mentioning books they do

know, and love, and read, and then slump in peace, sleep

on their La-Z-Boys, the tv snow, the books

held in their laps, the reading lamps still on.

Property owners need to start paying for sidewalk repair, city manager says

"I've walked your neighborhoods ... " YOUR neighborhoods. Really? Does Mr. Markus not include himself as a member of the citizenry?

Who's your favorite sports media personality?

Bob Davis is as good as anyone I've ever listened to call a game & way better than most. I also like Kevin Harlan, Jim Nance, and Dan Dierdorf. Count me in as a huge Charles Barkley fan, but I don't think he qualifies as a legit sportscaster. Dave Armstrong & Fran Fraschilla are great, too. Chris Piper is pretty darn good.

City receives funding for Safe Routes to School, loses out on Lawrence Loop backing

I'm disappointed. I'd really like to see the loop completed. I didn't know it cost so much, though.

What's your favorite musical?

"Hands On A Hard Body". It was performed at Theatre Lawrence last year.

If you could bring any musician or band to Lawrence, who would it be?

If we're talking Free State Festival, I think Weird Al would be great.
