The Oread hotel falls victim to vandals

Vandalism isn't good, but neither was putting that awful building there, where it doesn't fit, and where it absolutely ruins the skyline, once one of Lawrence's most beautiful features.
Take off the towers, please!

Do you agree with a move to waive Kansas' $69 marriage license fee for couples who can't afford it?

To Anna:
You wish the government weren't involved with marriage? I wish churches weren't involved!

Collins better get in shape

A news article reports facts.
An op-ed column states opinions and generates discussion.
This piece is the latter, and makes no pretense of being 'news.' Seems to me it's accomplished its goals.

Behind the wheels: A lot has changed in 50 years of driver’s ed in Lawrence

I could not believe anyone could possibly manage such a large object, and around other large objects, some moving rather rapidly, oh my gosh! My mother had just learned the year before!

Do you have a Facebook page?

Why at Lawrence High School? This is one of those dog-bites-man vs man-bites-dog news questions; it's not news when high school kids are on Facebook.
Ask on Mass at Weaver's, or maybe even Brandon Woods or the Senior Center. Now that would be more interesting!

Movie theater deal spurs renaissance in Met life

That's fabulous! When people tell me they can't stand opera, I always ask how many operas they've seen. Even when it's in another language, the music sweeps one along, and the stories can be gripping. And such beautiful music!
