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

Anna Undercover: High School Boys Rule!

They totally do. You would never have thought so, but in a strip club, younger men are typically a real challenge. It seems that 80% of men under 25 try *so* hard to teach me the same lessons over and over: They are quick to disrespect me, ... Continue reading
