Brownback says media not reporting good economic news. Here's why.

Wouldn't be great if Brownback eliminated the married tax?

This is the most ridiculous tax in the WORLD!!!

I say that this why people from Kansas flock to Missouri to get away from unfair taxation.

Wait a minute..............Isn't the above sentence why we fled England?

What musical instrument did you play as a child?

I started out playing the trumpet and then switched to the Tuba. When I was in the 5th Grade, the band teacher came into the classroom and gave us all papers with 100 answers to see if we could hear well enough to say whether the notes she was playing on the piano were in tune or out of tune.
This was done to judge our ability to play an instrument of our choosing.

I was the only student who scored 100 out of 100. Perfect tonal hearing.

But of course, being the youngest out of 9, money was tight, and so was the available band instruments. Needless to say that is why I started on the trumpet.

Family's home burglarized, say greatest loss is dog; alleged domestic violence at gentleman's club; woman accused of pushing man through glass door

An attempt to burglar my home was in 1996 when my daughter was 3 months old. We had the lights down low late in the evening because of the infant. My wife was feeding her, when she came into the living room, with our daughter in her arms, and informed me, someone is at the door.

My reply was; well let them in. She stated; No, someone opened the door. I stated; well, that is different.

I went outside and saw an individual running down the street. He turned around and said, I, I, I'm looking for Harry! I said, Harry doesn't live here and don't bring your azz back here to look for him. He said, I, I, I, won't.

I then saw him jump in his car, with Missouri License Plates, and take off.

Another case of the I-70 ripoff, where Missouri burglars come to Lawrence and rip people off, and head back to Missouri, via I-70.

Shortly after this incident, we built a house in Eudora, and have been happy since.

How did you hear about Sept. 11? What do you remember from that day?

I was in KCMO Fire Station #50. The captain was in his quarters watching the events unfold. I and a few others joined him and I will never forget the all too vivid picture of humans dying in flames and others choosing to leap to their death rather than burn.

All firefighters just off their 72 hour shift returned to the station as they were called back.

What is something you've always wanted to do but never tried?

Why yes I do. I have the album on my Android which is called "Fate of Nations". The song was what prompted me to get the cd after I spent time at the Presidio in San Francisco working.

It was a good song to spend with by the bay.
