Highberger fires campaign manager over remarks she made about opponent Hodgson

Well, I don't think anyone would urge people not to vote for a male candidate just because he has a uterus. Because he wouldn't have a uterus. That's just science.

This is unfortunate. I'm glad Abbie stayed positive. Frankly, I expected better from Boog's campaign.

Royals 2011 Preview Part II - The Lineup

How many bases you think Butler's going to steal? He's gotten 3 in 3 attempts so far, and everyone says he's in the best shape of his life. Threat to increase his speed?

Royals 2011 Preview Part II - The Lineup

Who do you think gets replaced first: Cabrera or Francoeur? Cabrera is young and tearing up ST, and Francoeur can't bat his way out of a paper bag.

And when they do get replaced, who comes up first: Dyson or Cain? I don't think Cain has options left, which leads me to believe it'll be him that gets the 4OF role.

Lawrence business owners hear from experts on federal healthcare reform legislation

Did someone actually write this story, or did they just parrot the inaccuracies included in a handout/press release?

Mother feels unfairly singled out at local drinking establishment

I think we're all missing the larger story here. If you read between the lines, you can clearly see that this so-called "manager" is nothing more than a puppet of the Trilateral Commission and most likely an avowed fascist. Let's look at the facts:

Exhibit A: No children in a bar after 11 p.m. What? Babies aren't allowed to have a good time?

Exhibit B: Just because an infant is in the most important developmental period in it's life, that doesn't automatically mean a bar is a bad place for it to pass the time. Lots of people have spent much of their life in a bar, such as Charles Bukowski, Edgar Allan Poe and Lindsey Lohan. These people have gone on to lead mature, fulfilling lives.

Exhibit C: This Dorsey guy used to live in Brooklyn. You can do your own math on that one.

Exhibit D: This lady isn't hurting anyone by lugging her infant into a bar late at night to have a few drinks. Sure, the kid will probably end up in protective custody and we'll all end up picking up the tab to raise him, but it takes a village, right?

I think you're all smart enough to see what's going on here. Every day, people like this Dorsey fellow come along and try to take away our personal freedoms. Today, it's no babies in a bar at midnight. Tomorrow, they'll be putting us in concentration camps.

I declare today, 6/16, to be Babies In A Bar day. Show your opposition to this clown. Take your infant to the bar, get hammered, and pay homage to our Founding Fathers.

Thieves cut through walls to access safe at Douglas County treasurer's satellite office

Incorrect. The number of implied subjects determines the verb.

Examples:

"None of the show was very good."

"None of the editors were getting a raise."

Also, see: http://data.grammarbook.com/blog/unca...

Finally, the adjective "perfectly" is both redundant and overused. Something is either correct or it isn't.

None of the checks was taken? Yee-haw!

Subject. Verb. Agreement.
