Expo sets tone for Ironman competition

Good for Lawrence for putting this on, but this is not a real Ironman! They need to make sure the "70.3" is included everywhere. A real Ironman is 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run. Good luck to all the competitors!

MTV's 'Sweet 16' show drives fad for lavish birthday parties

This is my favorite line: "I had a custom dress made for my friend Carly's Sweet 16 party at a hotel in Long Island. I wanted something unique, something so that I would fit in," Robotham said.

How unique, wanting to fit in. Oh, to be an idiot again!

Baldwin City festival a no-go for dogs now

They are doing the dogs a favor by banning them. Having a dog in a thronging crowd of thousands on a leash is just asking for him to get stressed out and react negatively. Not to mention all the junk on the street he could eat or get into. I also would bet that there are a number of owners who can't be bothered to pick up what their dogs are leaving behind, if you know what I mean. I love dogs, but I don't think they're people, and I don't like seeing them in situations that can encourage negative reactions.

Do you think the "Plan B" morning-after pill should be sold over the counter?

I'd like to speak for someone who doesn't have a voice: My Uterus. She says "TAKE YOUR POLITICS AND STAY THE HELL OUT OF ME!"

N. Lawrence looking to benefit from publicity for CBS drama

"What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" was filmed in Eudora. I am pretty sure it wasn't the end of the world for them.

Many states/communities are giving massive tax cuts and benefits to Hollywood for filming in their area. Lawrence should be happy for the potential exposure (and potential positive change) of a network television show. Don't be scared, fellow Kansans. I know it's something NEW, but it might be GOOD.

Ban on trans fats may not have a place at city's tables

How about instead of banning foods we instate mandatory exercise and nutrition classes? Schools used to have those...

I didn't remove your post. I don't discuss like that. You're a feisty b*tch! I admire your tenacity.

Thanks for your nasty and insulting response instead of explaining your statistics in the first place. It's people like you who throw numbers around without explaining them that make poor cases. And actually, biking to work is a highly practical alternative, especially in a middle-sized city like Lawrence. I'm not sure how the rest of the world has managed to get by without cars... even in areas that lack public transportation...

You know, you could present some valid points if you could only work on your presentation. Thanks for the information. I will attempt to synthesize it myself.

Parking cost is your biggest concern? Then ride your bike! Or walk! I'm really baffled by this example.
