"And I've seen bicyclists nearly get hit by cars turning right, because the motorist didn't properly look over their right shoulder. Note that in these cases, the bicyclist is right where they should be and has the right-of-way to proceed through the intersection before the car makes it's turn."

This seems a little odd to me. which way are the bicyles going that you are talking about? If they are going the same way as the vehicle, and are on the street, they shouldn't be passing a car making a right hand turn, correct? Maybe I am confused, but to make a right hand turn, a vehicle should be in the right hand lane. So you shouldn't have to look over your shoulder to see a bicycle passing you on your right when you turn.

Forecasters say Saturday storm system could be 'life threatening;' severe weather expected for Lawrence area

So, i just saw on weather.com that there have already been 103 confirmed tornados today. Also, for anybody interested, Wichita and the surrounding area is/was getting hit by several tornados. Even the airport sustained damage.

8 indicted in Oxycodone trafficking case

Ron, I generally enjoy reading what you write on this forum. Today, however, I have to agree that I am finding you more than a little arrogant. Perhaps someone named bozo hacked your account?

Anyway, I think you may have contradicted yourself just a bit. You say that if drugs were decriminalized it would not be necessary to commit crimes to come up with money to buy them. In the same post, you say that people steal to get cigarettes and alcohol, which are legal.

Comparison of large, small class sizes underscores importance of personalized interactions

Did anyone else try to read this in the print version today? I was in Mr. Goodcents for lunch and tried to read it, but part of the story got cut out. Great editing! Maybe the editors classes were too large?

Gun rebuttal

So, even in a very dangerous situation they didn't make it worse and start shooting innocent people? Isn't that one of the arguments made by the anti CCP crowd? That in a stressful situation they wouldn't be able to hit what they were shooting at? Well, those CCP holders didn't do that.

On the other hadn, you show that CCP holders won't necessarially stop a crime in progress either. Seems to me like nothing really changed in that situation because of CCP, did it?

Loss of license ordered in Kansas abortion case

Sorry, you are right that all of these particular recommendations were for minors. They are not the only times that she performed second opinions for Dr. Tiller. As for the rest of these cases that were part of this decision, I don't have the authority or knowledge of each situation to pass judgement on which should have been allowed or not.

My post was directed at Bozo for going to the extreme side of an argument directly. Bozo rarely, if ever tries to find validity in what others say if they don't agree 100% with them. That kind of behavior does not further discussion one bit.

I don't see why if someone thinks that abortion should not be allowed in every case, that makes them in favor of raping 11 year olds.

Now to be fair, I find that math uses the same tactic. But in this case, bozo used it first, so that is where the comment came from and why it was directed the way it was.

Bozo, this is a little overboard. Nowhere in the story did the judge say that all of the recommendations were invalid. I believe that the case you mention would be one that most reasonable people, the judge included, would have no problem with. However, you fail to take into account any of the other cases. It is the extreme views like this (and no abortions in any case whatsover from the other side) that make it nearly impossible to have a reasonable conversation about the issue at hand.
