Right Tool for the job

Tool is hands down the best band of the last 10 years. Already knew the Lawrence connection, but it's nice to see a story on it.

I wonder if Danny would let me take him to the Outhouse now......

Guess what, parents: Babies charged adult prices at games

Thanks not-Dolph.

I think it is very disrespectful for grown men/women, to talk so negatively about children. Think about it - We were all children once, in fact, most would like to go back to a time when they were not so jaded and negative.

Davisnin - Please use my entire quote next time, instead of taking it out of context:
"My son is not a "screamer" and I can tell you that I dislike an ouburst as much as the next person. If this occurs, I would find a way to sooth the child or leave the situation."

My intention behind this,was to state that he is not a child that simply screams for no reason (most children do not). If an outburst were to occur, there is a proper way to handle it. I would either fix the situation or leave the situation.

Confrontation - You don't have to loooove my baby, but you also don't have to act like a dick.

My son is not a "screamer" and I can tell you that I dislike an ouburst as much as the next person. If this occurs, I would find a way to sooth the child or leave the situation.

I don't have superiority issues, I just function in rational way that accepts there are all kinds of people in this world. Babies cry, fact of life. You sound like the type of person who gets mad that handicap people take up too much space with their damn wheelchairs.

Do you think people with babies should be charged for an extra ticket at KU football games?

Pywacket sounds like a self-hating mother. Please don't have any more children.

That's an interesting comment "Confrontation". It sounds like you may be in the minority of a$$holes, who dislike children and other people in general. Last I checked, a scream by a child at a football game is the last thing to give someone a migraine. 200 infants screaming<<<<<<<40,000 adults screaming.

The majority of Society enjoy young children, including the fans that sat near us at the Chiefs game. They spoke to us, waved to my son, and GASP! even played with my son during half-time.

Sporting events are great situations to spend time with children. Why push them off on a babysitter? I enjoy spending time with my son. I prefer that they be with me instead of staying with a stranger. The point is that an infant and an adult should not be charged the same price of admission.

Do you think people with babies should be charged for an extra ticket at KU football games?

To all the people bagging on bringing a child to a sporting event- My wife and I took our (16 month old) son to the Chiefs game last Thursday, and he had a great time. We did not stay for the entire game as it was getting late at the beginning of the 4th quarter, but I can tell you that he was having fun through out.

Yes the crowd is loud, so is the music, PA, etc. This does not mean that he can not have fun. It may be true that a 3 month old would not enjoy this, but there is no reason that a family shouldn't be able to take an infant out to enjoy the nice weather on a fall afternoon. If those plans include a football game, all the more power to them. I would like to have one person try argue the point that a 15 pound infant and a 300 pound grown man are charged the same price...

Learned this one the hard way last year.

My four month old required a ticket, so guess what? We watched from the hill. Instead of KU getting $70 for my wife and I, they got $0. I refuse to pay $35 even now that my son is 16 months. He takes up little space, and sits on either myself or my wife's lap the majority of the time.

Went to a cheifs game 2 weeks ago, and their policy is 3 and under do not require a ticket.

-Lew should look at the thousands of unsold tickets at each game, then glance at the hill. The majority of people sitting there have small children. Drop that rediculous price for infants, and you may fill that stadium on game days....

Parking department employees need thick skin, people skills

Eride - They do ticket people for not parking within the space - Been there done that. Unfortunately for me, it was a chain reaction of about 10 cars mis-parking. With limited space I followed suit - OOPS -$20!

Imagold - I really doubt that the parking department guidelines are "laws". No, I don't think your a bad person for obeying the laws, but you may want to re-evaluate what is a law and what is rule/guideline. Unless you've never chewed gum in class, talked during a movie, sneezed without covering you mouth...

The permits are not based on how much you are willing to pay, but on what level you are in the institution. If you are an undergrad, in most cases you are only issued a Yellow Permit, that allows (example- don't qoute me)500 cars to look for 400 spaces. Many times these "law breakers" do not have an option of parking in a space that they supposedly paid for with their yellow permit. Many times, instead of driving around the lot for 30 minutes, students park in the metered spots and pay again. But guess what, if your class runs long or you are held up for another reason - BAM! Another ticket.

Like I said, I have never became angry with the parking attendants, but it can cause frustration when you pay for a parking permit (you can't find a space with that permit so you park in a meter); pay for the meter (time runs over); then pay for a ticket.

If the parking department is really pulling in 70,000 tickets a year, don't you think a new lot/garage would be a possibility???

Wow Mistygreen, how's the air way up there?? Get off your high horse!

Trust me, I recieved many a parking ticket while attending KU. Never did it make me furious, but it does tick you off. Most students recieve these tickets because they either:
a) Parked in a metered spot, and something took longer than expected while on campus - $20/hr (Yes they will come back every hour and give you another one - Trust me)
b) Did not feel that they could afford the $100+ parking pass for the worst parking lots.

Never have I seen anyone yell at these employees, but I have definitely heard some grumblings...
