Wichita water rates will continue to go up every year more than the rate of inflation. Now the city wants its paying customers to donate an extra amount each month to pay the water bill for others? It is hard enough for most people to provide for their own family.

Maybe if the city would not raise rates so much, we would not have to have this H2O Care Fund. Duh.

There is an old expression that comes to mind when viewing the River Vista apartment development drawings: ticky-tacky.

I have worked part time for the Kansas Lottery throughout its existence. We recently had a new executive director appointed. It seems like governors use this position to dump old recycled politicians. There are plenty of knowledgeable folks within the organization to fill this position.

The conservative wing of the Republican Party owns Kansas. It may only represent 10 or 15 percent of the population of Kansas, but it wins the primaries and then the general elections.

Some Thanksgiving workers are volunteers grateful for extra pay. Lonely ones are glad to be around people. Some are far away from family. Some don’t give a hoot about the holiday. Some don’t want to report for work any day and, yes, some are disgruntled.

Interesting to notice that U.S. shoppers are creating a rivalry in violence between Black Friday and a foot patrol in Afghanistan.

Get all our troops out of Afghanistan now.

This year, with the economic and political stagnation in our country, I’m thankful that I still have something to be thankful for.

The GOP complaining about the implementation of the health care law is like a mechanic who pours sugar in the gas tank, then complains about the car not running right.

When watching television, I use the beep test. The second beep I hear used to obscure what someone on the show said is an indicator that the show is not worth my time.

Kanye West says being with Kim Kardashian is like Romeo and Juliet. I hope he remembers that when she files for divorce.

Does anyone care what Kanye West really thinks? Or, for that matter, what Alec Baldwin or any other celebrity thinks?

I kind of hope some bored, lamebrain idiot will try to play the “knockout game” with me.
