I think renaming the Wichita airport after Dwight Eisenhower is a great idea. It would be a great acknowledgment of a great leader.

Naming our new airport for a great Kansan like Eisenhower is a fitting tribute to a man who gave so much to his country.

I’m all for the name change – a wonderful way to acknowledge a revered Kansan and a new recognition for our city airport.

Double the minimum wage, and then the consumer will no longer need to tip.

If my count is correct, I just had the fourth and fifth phone books delivered to my house. Must be another part of Obama’s jobs plan.

Republicans demand transparency from President Obama. However, as a Republican governor, Sam Brownback circumvents openness at every opportunity. If he can’t manage transparency as governor, what would a Brownback presidential administration be like?

If Republicans are so concerned about preventing voter fraud, shouldn’t they also favor restricting campaign-finance contributors to only a candidate’s potential constituents? No more corporate contributions, no more out-of-state or out-of-district contributions.

Bashar Assad has killed 100,000 using bullets, artillery and bombs. It appears that Obama and John Kerry want to teach him a lesson when he kills 1,400 more with gas. They are all just as dead. Besides, at this point, what difference does it make? Right, Hillary Clinton?

Our hypocritical government is concerned about Syria’s treatment of its citizens, yet we routinely allow the slaughter of thousands of unborn babies. What about all the Christians in many countries who suffer persecution and death? What about the four people who were murdered in Benghazi while our government looked away?

Now the feds won’t enforce their own drug laws, paving the way for a generation of fat, underemployed potheads to run the country. The terrorists don’t have to attack us again. We’ll destroy ourselves soon enough.

Wouldn’t it be prudent for our government to establish a DUI measurement of pot smokers before legalizing marijuana for public consumption?

What has happened to the I-135 South sign designating the Central exit? It is missing in action.
