Should residents be charged a trash collection rate based upon how much they throw away?


Really.

As I'm taking my single, personal trash container to the street, I look to the left and see that the neighboring household with twice as members as mine has twice as much trash. I look to the right, and a neighbor who spent the weekend Spring cleaning, has filled the curbside. Across the street, newlyweds with newborn twins are overflowing their containers.

So... what? I'm supposed to get bent out of shape because I'm somehow "subsidizing" their trash pick-up?

Just how petty do you think I am?
(Wait. Put down that hand mirror before answering.)

Oh. Please yes.
If fee demarcation is to be based on the capacity of one of those "official" monsters now provided by the city, well, I'm just going to need to up my *residential* game.

Should the Downtown Lawrence Farmers' Market ban live animals?


Ban all live animals, humans included.
Keep the Farmers' Market the vegetative, zombie affair it was meant to be.

Oh. Please, yes.
Let me pay to have my trash weighed and/or counted.

Liquor stores fighting effort by convenience stores to sell full-strength beer


Point being... aren't people who are drinking for *alcohol content* plucking those little (or not-so-little) clear bottles from the bottom shelf?

Every time this topic resurfaces, I am reminded of a decades old KU Chemistry department analysis of local beers, obtained from a variety of vendors. The finding: regardless of outlet or labeling, ALL beer is essentially 3%--a handful only slightly more and many somewhat less.

"3.2%" and "5.0%" exist on labels.

Besides, who drinks beer for alcohol content?

The credits have run (discredits abound).
Time to empty the theatre;
the ushers are needing to clear the aisles.
Lines of movie-goers are waiting to be served,
3-D glasses in hand, finger tips well-buttered.
Stub out your ticket in a proper receptacle near the exit.
