The State Board of Education should be quizzed on the cursive writing of Q and Z. If the board members fail the quiz, then their new standard should be repealed. Talk about out of touch. Outside of a signature, when do people in today’s world ever write in cursive?

One way to make schools safer is to fingerprint all gun buyers. What does Kansas propose to do to make schools safer? Fingerprint all teachers. What a crazy state we live in.

So now it will be possible to carry concealed guns into the libraries, recreational centers, the art museum and about 80 other city-owned buildings. Why didn’t the City Council also approve carrying concealed guns into its meetings?

I actually feel safer with concealed-carry. Why would you try to rob a place if the other people in there could have guns strapped to their hips?

So Sedgwick County is giving the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition $300,000. Is there any way we can actually measure what, if anything, it accomplishes with the money?

I’ve yet to hear a good explanation as to why the Carr brothers are still alive, much less filing bogus appeals.

I understand wanting to bring work and employment to Kansas, but Boeing and the IAM have shown they can’t be trusted. The state, the city and taxpayers, along with past and present employees, have all gone to bat for this company, only to be slapped in the face and laughed at.

Children in grade school and younger will wonder what made Boeing such a big deal around here.

Kathleen Sebelius testified before Congress that she is looking into why there were so many computer problems when open enrollment started with Obamacare. May I suggest that she stand in front of a mirror to see the problem?

What is the difference between the Republican Party and President Obama’s puppy? There is not any. They both roll over as soon as he commands it.

Imagine Obama’s dilemma when he saw Raul Castro. If he shook Castro’s hand, Republicans would accuse him of endorsing a dictator. If he didn’t, the same folks would accuse him of not honoring the Mandela spirit and of rude conduct unbecoming a president. Talk about a no-win situation.

We survived Bush. You can survive Obama.

Let’s drive forward and get with the legalization of marijuana, release the prisoners and make room for the real criminals. This is win-win. Let’s just get the inevitable done now instead of watching the rest of the nation gain from this move.

A fertilized egg is a real person like a Facebook friend is a real friend.

Don’t you just wish that more time would fall right out of the sky?
