See who fights hardest for the torture program: Dick Cheney, who has no mercy and clearly designed the program. He’s also fighting to not be prosecuted for war crimes, except you don’t prosecute the winners. Methinks he doth protest too much.
Do families spend tons of money investigating each other and use the hungry media to share with the world every dirty, wrongheaded thing they did? Congress has just added fuel to the hate already directed toward the U.S. Now how many innocent people will die?
George Orwell wrote fiction, but 50,000 more cameras on our streets, regardless of the placement, is a step in the direction he described. Be careful what you ask for; you just might not see all the possible results.

As I got onto I-235 south from the new 13th Street entrance and then enjoyed taking Kellogg across town, I was impressed with the progress Wichita has made with great highway improvements. Thank you to those making these improvements possible.
I can’t count the times I’ve heard or read “unarmed black teenager” recently. Does that mean that if Michael Brown had been armed, it would have been a fair fight and Darren Wilson would have been justified? Come on. This is not 1870 and Ferguson is not Dodge City.
It would be nice to list the true valued amount of money, American lives, equipment, doctors, medical supplies, shared technology and such that we’ve given to the world, then compare that number with the $18 trillion debt we owe. I bet it’s close.
