I do not hire people with poor handwriting, as it indicates a lack of self-esteem and confidence.

The learning of cursive writing supports the acquisition of tactile abilities and develops parts of the brain never reached by a keyboard.

It’s fine that the U.S. is helping the typhoon-ravaged Philippines. Now, where is the list of other nations’ contributions to the rebuilding and humanitarian efforts? Does any other country help?

I would bet that a big percentage of the people who say they were satisfied with their health insurance had never had a hospital bill.

So the Democrats are accusing Republicans of sabotaging Obamacare. Nice try. This disaster is Obama’s and no one else’s. He wanted it, he built it, he lied about it to get it passed and himself re-elected. He owns it.

I am 70 years old and have been a registered Democrat since I went to college. Since I have always lived in Kansas, I have voted for many Republican candidates for office, including Pat Roberts. No more.

The only thing wrong with the death sentence in Kansas is that when the appeals process is over, nobody has the guts to carry it out.

There is a practical, cost-saving way of preventing death penalty appeals: Get rid of capital punishment as soon as possible. The Carrs’ appeals help no one, except the brothers and their lawyers, and cost us big bucks.

Parents, you need to control your kids. Sincerely, nonparents.

I feel sorry for young people today. Not only are their parents messed up but their grandparents are, too.

I would love to know how much Wichita spends each time it drop that anti-ice liquid on our streets.

All retailers need to pay attention to customer service and satisfaction. If I send a message through your website you should respond to me, whether it was a complaint or compliment. Can you afford to lose a customer?

I buy Christmas presents, not “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” presents. Store owners, beware – if it offends you to say “Merry Christmas,” I’ll take my business elsewhere.

If people say “Happy Holidays” to you, they are being kind and friendly. I can think of worse things they could say to you.
