All candidates should be part of the presidential debates. The “15 percent in polls” rule is another tool of the two-party system to keep the status quo.

It seems the fat has finally hit the fire in educators’ salaries. The cuts should be made away from the classroom, and the superintendent seems like a good place to start. Times are tough all over. All should be ready to sacrifice.

The media always refer to anything in the north part of town as northeast or northwest Wichita. But let something happen in southeast or southwest Wichita, and they just clump us all together as “south Wichita.” I’m sick of the stereotype.

Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, seems a bit mixed up about who the bad guys are. Edward Snowden is a national hero. Those in the National Security Agency who illegally spied on the American people are the ones who should be in prison.

Wichita clearly isn’t charging enough for water. Sprinkler systems were running in a week we had more than 10 inches of rain. That isn’t even good for lawns and contributes to mosquito population.

The Wichita City Council moved to raise our sales taxes for another downtown Community Improvement District. Why doesn’t it just declare the whole city a CID and jack up the sales taxes for everything?

There were more admirable people for the Sedgwick County Commission to name the IRS building after than Ronald Reagan. If it had to be a Republican, it should have been Dwight Eisenhower. History has not been kind to Reagan, with his Iran contra deal and other things.

How does the city lose $3.50 on garage sales? The paperwork takes a minute. Solution: Do away with the license. It is like the fireworks law; most people don't follow it anyway.

Given the incompetence shown by Gov. Sam Brownback, Kansas voters can give themselves a break by retaining the Kansas Supreme Court justices we have. Don’t let this governor use a wrecking ball on another branch of government.

WSU president John Bardo says nothing is off the table regarding football. Is the establishment of academic studies of the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific “off the table”?

It is wrong that the former governors are attempting to persuade people to retain Kansas Supreme Court justices. The governors are out, and the people want the justices out also.

Is it just me or should the logo for the Kansas State Fair be “Corn Blast” rather than “Blast Call”? It seems more fitting with this year’s image.

I added earthquake insurance for my home. However, there is a steep deductible. If I ever have to file a claim, I will sue those companies that injected their wastewater that started all these troubles.

I was awakened Saturday morning. But instead of an earthquake, I felt certain it was the last dying gasps of the state of Kansas.
