Kansas faces looming teacher shortage

This is ridiculous. Teachers are highly trained professionals, and there is a lot more to the job than just knowing subject matter. I suggest you spend one day in an elementary school and just get the tiniest inkling of all it entails.

All for 1 ... or 2: Jayhawks say seed doesn’t matter

What a funny little name you have! If you are so sick of the Jayhawks, why don't you use your beloved Tiggers instead?

'I'm still here': Tyshawn Taylor’s story marked by adversity

How sad that you choose to take the opportunity to turn this story of success into an article that fits your negative agenda. If Tyshawn's not your type of player, so be it. However, you would have to be blind to say that he has not helped KU win plenty of games. Oh, and it is rather comical that you pretend to know more about game strategy than Bill Self.

Lawrence City Commission approves gender identity ordinance

That could actually be one of the single most ridiculous arguments I've ever heard! You must walk through every moment of your life feeling absolutely terrified of everyone you see.

Statehouse Live: Teacher retirements, reductions increase dramatically

Teachers who are not at the top of their pay scale also means teachers without experience and without as much training. Is that what we want?

KU law student organizing animal cruelty prosecution clinic

Is there some reason that you feel the need to call her "little Katie?" I can't think of any need to be so condescending--unless you somehow feel threatened by her or by this great idea.

KU law student organizing animal cruelty prosecution clinic

Actually, teaching human beings to care about ALL forms of life would help translate into actually caring for human lives...and animals, and plants, and the environment. If more children were brought up to care for another living being, they would learn to treasure all kinds of life. But teaching children (or adults) to only care about humans is exactly the WRONG attitude.
