Kansas man gets half original sentence in rape of adopted daughter

A pedophile rapes children. Rape is rape no matter the age or gender of the victim.

Kansas man gets half original sentence in rape of adopted daughter

Re-sentenced to less than half, not 'more than half of his original prison term' of 48 years and ten months. A sexual predator now much more likely to released from prison in 10-15 years instead of 25-30 years.

KU business dean is candidate for provost, will address campus Monday

I think she's much closer to the Kochs than is good for the University of Kansas.

Brownback signs education equity funding bill; court must now decide if measure satisfies the Kansas Constitution

Yes, I'm afraid we'll lose all but Caleb Stegall from the Kansas Supreme Court bench in November. The Kochs don't like 'no' as an answer, and they have very deep pockets. Now's the time for our Supreme Court justices to come out swinging and nail down every possible legal rat hole in their decision rejecting this latest Koch bill.

Brownback signs education equity funding bill; court must now decide if measure satisfies the Kansas Constitution

Diverting education public tax monies to private schools is intended to destroy the Kansas public school system. It is not constitutional.

League of Women Voters joins federal suit challenging Kobach on citizenship law

New bill would radically overhaul how Kansas schools are funded

"A uniform, statewide health benefits plan for school employees, similar to the State Employee Health Plan, that would only offer participants a high-deductible health policy coupled with a health savings account." to continue to destroy public school teachers' benefits and drive them from this state.

"And a voucher program, known as the Education Freedom Act, that would allow up to 70 percent the state aid attributed to a student to be used to pay tuition at a private or parochial school." to eliminate public school funding and funnel public schools monies into private profits.

Governor Brownback's disgraceful administration of the Bircher Koch brothers' scorched earth public policies. Poor Kansas.
