Get ready for cheaper prices than ever on air-included trips to China http://www.kansas.com/living/travel/arthur-frommer/article32792289.html#storylink=rss Having unsuccessfully attempted to contact the top executives at America’s several leading tour operators to China, I’ve concluded that they are all on the way to China to learn how they can reduce the prices of a trip there even below current levels. A representative for one such company indicated that this was, in fact, the case. China’s recent devaluation of its currency, the yuan, has led to predictions that a tour to China, which already is one of the world’s least-expensive travel destinations for Americans, soon will become cheaper. All this is in line with the obvious effort by the Chinese government to increase its export industries (with incoming travel being the same as an export).

Beth Clarkson: Allow an audit of voting tapes http://www.kansas.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/article32685087.html#storylink=rss Some Kansans appear to see my research into the integrity of our electronic voting machines as an attack on Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, and on Tabitha Lehman, the Sedgwick County election commissioner. Others appear to see my statistical analysis of voting results in 2014 as an attempt to overturn that year’s elections. Neither of these perceptions is correct.
