Budget advances with 'devastating' cuts to KU

The old saying "if it ain't broke , don't fix it" has taken on a whole different meaning with brownback and his band of right wing flatlanders. Their policy is "If it works , break it" and send the money we used to break kansas to Alec and my buddies and their buddies.

Besides, who needs education. The less education the more comprehensive Fox and the "have I got some snake oil for you" cave dwellers can be perceived. It is a good thing the cave dwellers are against investing in infrastructure or the next most logical thing for them to do is to build a bypass around Kansas.

Opinion: Bringing end to war is an Obama fantasy

Krauthammer fantasies include fantasizing that others fantasize as much as he does. Neocons don't like it when you talk smack on their war fantasies. More wars More wars we need more wars. Sooner the better.

City of Lawrence begins using new automated trash truck

So the hidden cost of the carts is the trucks we have to buy. The carts and the truck make perfect sense for automating the trash pick up but I hope we don't wind up with the most expensive trash pick up around.

The trade off of jobs for trucks. How much good did that really do. Pink slips, unemployment, more pollution and new trucks. Pretty much sums it up.

Rio Adams: Transfer from KU a ‘family decision’

Yep, talking smack on KU while you are on the squad is a ticket out of Lawrence. I like the schools he is rumored to be interested in. Like those schools are going to just let him come and call his shots. Unfortunately, most of these kids that leave the program don't have a very good track record of success elsewhere. I do hope Rio is an exception but he is bucking the odds.

Rio Adams: Transfer from KU a ‘family decision’

How is Calipari going to get rid of last years dud high school all americans to make room for wiggins and the new cast of all americans. The deal is you have to give up your scholarship after one year and get lost or be on the practice squad.(providing there is room and you will accept being a walk on.

How will you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

Piling St Pats on top of pope-allooza is just more than I can stand. I'm just so happy that things are no longer as popeless as they seemed only a few days ago and things are getting greener.

Notebook: Rio Adams shines late; Sherron Collins, Alex Smith attend game

Jo Jo is definitely in the discussion. McLemore may be the best that ever left after only playing one year and probably would have been the best if he left after 3 or 4 years. He is almost certainly the best since Paul Pierce. How about Steve Honeycutt of KSU? Had some great battles with Jo Jo White and may be the best ever wildcat guard.

New downtown store opens with focus on selling locally produced goods; Warehouse Arts District hires promoter, moving ahead with second loft apartment project

"...The latest is it has hired a new full-time employee to promote the district...."

sounded good all the way up to this.

"Patti McCormick, who worked for several years as the main promoter for the local group that owns The Oread and The Eldridge hotels,"

It appears that the private sector that is in bed with the city commission is now trying to get a hook into the art seen. I would think that if they hired an artist who is active in developing this district would have been better than a sell out. Where will the artist have to go next to be allowed to be artists.

Sound Off: 30 or more for McLemore
