No one these days knows what a true debate is. Politicians have turned them into character assassinations. I want to hear what candidates would like to accomplish if elected, not about what their opposition has or hasn’t done.
The news media are lucky that Mitt Romney suggested the $10,000 bet, so they would have something to talk about besides the issues.
Anyone who threw stones at Bill Clinton or John Edwards has no business supporting Newt Gingrich. A mealymouthed “I don’t like his personal life” makes you no less of a hypocrite.
Don’t blame George Bush. He is no longer president. The buck stops at Obama.
The Eagle asked a question on the front page on Dec. 11 — “Was Iraq worth it?” — and answered it on Page 17A, with the names and photos of the 50 Kansans who have died in Iraq. It was not worth it.
Predator drones are being used in this country to surveil citizens, and the federal government proposes an unmanned border crossing in West Texas to allow anyone entry into this country without going through any security. What has happened to this country?
The police are warning people to cover packages in their cars so the thieves won’t steal them. If police kept these criminals off the street, we could solve the problem. Most crimes are caused by the same people, who are picked up and out the same day. We need a new district attorney who is tough on crime.
Proud to be a Gorilla. Congratulations, Pittsburg State, on advancing to the 2011 NCAA Division II National Championship game.
The Chiefs should hire Tim Tebow as their new head coach.
Congratulations to Leonard Pitts for “Hope from a Christmas long past” (Dec. 12 Opinion). He used the word “Christmas” nine times. I am not offended; our Founding Fathers of America wouldn’t be, either. Thanks for keeping Christ in this holy day.
Great job on booking Brian Setzer at the Orpheum Theatre. Awesome show and a huge win for Wichita to be included this year’s tour.
I am really unhappy with the way the Kansas Star Casino is butchering our state song in its commercials. “Home on the Range” has officially been our state song since 1947. What right does the casino have to change the melody? It’s downright insulting.
