Letters to the editor on turnpike, guns, moochers, Kansas politics

I oppose Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposal to bring the Kansas Turnpike Authority under the state’s control. As a quasi-private entity, the KTA has enjoyed the freedom to operate in an efficient manner throughout its life. It provides an excellent, safe roadway for users, while not burdening nonusers with the expense of its upkeep. Its tolls are low compared with other turnpikes in the country, and the quality of service is a frequent topic of patrons.
