Opinion: Wheelchair team is fairness issue for KU

1) You must have a particular type of disability to play wheelchair basketball. Just because you use a wheelchair doesn't mean you can play. You also need to be good at the game.

2) No one is "bound" or "confined" to a wheelchair. I would encourage everyone to quit using that terminology.

3) Missouri and OSU have WC B-Ball teams. Having a team draws students who use wheelchairs to the school. Not vice-versa.

Kansas holding hearings on disability services

Translation: The State of Kansas (i.e., Brownback and all the other tea-party, Koch-worshipping buffoons) is required by law to get your input, but they will do whatever they damn please in the end.

Douglas County judge's letter on rumored foster care changes raises concern

I don't think the Judge would have written this letter if there wasn't a very good indication that Brownback is moving in this direction. Just another attempt to push his own "religious" agenda on the people of Kansas.

Kansas representative faces hearing over 'racist' remarks

Didn't sound hysterical at all to me. She's a well-spoken, well-educated History professor and she calls it as she sees it. Does she sound hysterical to you because she's a woman? Or a black woman? Would a white man have sounded hysterical saying the same thing? Hmmm....

Bridal shop to take over space of longtime downtown retailer; city considering issuing new citizen survey; project to honor Langston Hughes

For the entirety of the downtown area, not just for the Eldridge. I thought it was a city garage. Did the Eldridge pay into the building fund?

With the Eldridge expanding, where are all these hotel-stayers going to be parking exactly?

I have to disagree. This was NOT done with the best of intentions.
