What is Your Vote for Favorite Local Deal?

Did you see the moon’s halo last night?

A few weeks ago we had a beautiful show of optical effects; we saw everything from sun dogs to halos around the sun. Matt Miller wrote a great blog labeling the different optical effects here. Last night we saw something similar, a halo around the moon. Here ... Continue reading

Electromagnetic allergies?

OK maybe not, but a fellow in Santa Fe is suing his neighbor because she refuses to turn of her electronic devices when not in use including WiFi. He claims to be suffering from something called an electromagnetic "allergy". The whole thing reminds me of the controversy ... Continue reading

Jersey? Sure.

Last week, NBAStore released the results of its tracking of the top-selling NBA jerseys since the start of the 2009-10 season. Somewhat surprisingly, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant held down the top spot, a position that he’s owned since the start of the 2008-09 season. I ... Continue reading

How Thin Is It?

Yassir, I like to read the JW. Been doin' it since I was a kid. I used to be an alternate carrier, too, for a buddy o' mine who needed some time off during basketball season. Big two-pouch carrying bag balance precariously on each side of my ... Continue reading

Meatballs - they’re not just for pasta anymore.

As kids, my mom always let us pick what we'd have for our birthday dinners. Although, as we all know, giving kids too many choices is always a bad idea, so she'd "suggest" a few items for us to choose from. Usually the list included country style ... Continue reading

Entitlement Politics

Recently, I wrote a blog about my perception of inconsistencies related to our snow shoveling ordinance. The response seemed to tie social security to owing service to the state. A lot of discussion about social security ensued. A good topic. Next year Mr. Obama has vowed to ... Continue reading

When it comes to the weather, how much social media is too much?

Twitter is something I am still trying to fully grasp. I understand the concept, etiquette and how to post a tweet, but I'm still trying to figure out how to effectively use it. My main use of Twitter is for the weather; posting a short forecast to ... Continue reading

Recap: Aldrich an all-around sensation

"Forty Minutes of Hell," indeed. I assume Mike Anderson and his Missouri Tigers didn't intend to end up on the double-hockeysticks end of Monday's game, but Kansas made sure they did by limiting Missouri's open looks to a nearly ridiculous degree. KU's 32.4 percent eFG% defense started ... Continue reading

Anna Undercover: MLK, This Blog, & a Brit

Once upon a time, three wildly disparate things that seemed destined never to interact were suddenly quite connected. They were: Martin Luther King Jr., a stripper blog, and the irrepressibly giddy online presence of a certain *Lawrence Journal-World* employee. OK, maybe he's not so much *giddy*, but ...

Anna Undercover: Kansas Is Rough

*SMACK!* I cracked my studded leather belt against the stage. Ahh, Friday! After *years* working in an office, I'm more into beating the crap out of people than I ever thought I'd be. Most girls are nice on stage, but the Outhouse brings something out in me ... Continue reading

Recap: KU a well-oiled machine in rout of ISU

This is what KU (ver. 2010) is supposed to look like. Center Cole Aldrich recorded a double-double and swatted shots. Guard Sherron Collins was the toughest guy in the building with some toughness to spare. Guards Tyshawn Taylor and Brady Morningstar served as the glue, combining to ... Continue reading
