Opinion Line Extra (June 10)

Why did The Eagle fail to observe the anniversary of D-Day on June 6? We wouldn’t have the freedom of the press and all our other freedoms we have if not for D-Day.

I hope The Wichita Eagle prints a list of all those legislators who voted for increasing the sales tax in Kansas. I want to know whom to vote against in the next election.

Where does some judge get off overruling a government death panel’s decision not to give a sick little girl a chance at life? This was the same kind of thing the evil insurance companies pull. Sure is a good thing we changed everything.
