The whining football players are getting paid off because no one told them they could get hurt. Who’s next? Carpenters because they could get splinters? Lifeguards because they could get wet? Doctors because they may have to be around sick people?


Conservatives are quick to whip out the Constitution. However, they have been silent when it comes to Gov. Sam Brownback wiping out the system of checks and balances that has been a critical piece of how our government works. Such is their need for power to build the conservative utopia.


So now we find out the “hope” in Barack Obama’s campaign slogan means that he hopes Vladimir Putin can save him after he put his foot in his mouth about a red line.

KAKE, Channel 10, has made the worst mistake by letting Jeff Herndon get away. He made the news program. He was such a professional young man delivering the news, and we immediately trusted him. I am just sick about this, as are many others.

People need to remember that you can get the most information online, but not necessarily the best information.


The national news media look like they have a liberal bias because Kansas is dominated by conservatives. If you lived in a state controlled by liberals, the national media would appear to have a conservative bias. It’s all relative.


I hope Jane Fonda is nominated for an Oscar for “The Butler.”
