I believe mail delivered only to a cluster of locked mailboxes is a much better cost-saving plan than stopping Saturday deliveries, even if we need to rent the boxes.

When I was 17 my mother told me how she tried to abort me in the early 1950s. We were both glad she failed, and I’m very thankful we didn’t live in a state with legal abortion clinics.

Drilling for oil anywhere downtown sounds terrible. What guarantee is there that we will still be able to have a Riverfest after a well is installed? Do you want to move your business to downtown Wichita, near an oil well?

Tailgating me on Kellogg at 60 mph will not influence me to drive above the speed limit. If you are in such a hurry, there are two lanes to the left you can move to.

Why is it when repairs need to be done on K-96, they do them at night, but repairs on Webb Road and the turnpike must be done during morning and afternoon busy traffic?

Five years in, and there’s still no evidence that President Obama knows what a “job” is.

When it comes to the Koch brothers, it’s not wealth envy so much as concern about how much they want to control.

Liberals who are still whining about the Kochs’ money: Get over it.

On the difference between a Democrat and a socialist: Stop using public streets and the water and sewer systems, and you will be on your way to a libertarian lifestyle.

Has anyone else noticed how obnoxious Cox commercials are?

I can’t remember the last time I wept openly, but the Wisconsin father being reunited with the son his wife had abandoned at the Wichita Children’s Home brought me to tears (July 19 Eagle).

We ran over a large metal object and ended up stuck in the middle of a busy street. Some drivers whipped around us; many more offered help. Special thanks to “Ryan,” who took the time to jack up our car and remove the object.
