I sure hope a reader was trying to be funny in saying “Kansas taxpayers should thank our Kansas government employees who work under the hardship of having to wait until age 52 to retire with full pensions.” Some people work into their 70s and still don’t get a pension.
Nancy Pelosi is spending her holiday break in a $10,000-a-night suite in Hawaii — a true woman of the people. Doesn’t that make her one of the 1 percent her Occupy supporters are complaining about?
Never miss a local story.
Barbara Walters interviewed the Obamas and immediately brought up Newt Gingrich’s marriages. Why? Why do only liberal news people interview them? Why not let the conservative news people interview President Obama? I bet there would be serious questions asked instead of these fluffy, easy-to-answer questions.
Long after death, the legacies live on for Reagan and Nixon. Reaganomics, with its phantom trickle-down economics, created the largest capital maldistribution in history. Nixon woke the sleeping dragon, China, and unknowingly created America’s new master and landlord.
Mitt Romney says Newt Gingrich is a professional politician. Gingrich says Romney is not conservative enough.

Why does Sam Brownback think marriage will end poverty? Because it worked for him. Brownback married a rich woman.
Shame on NBC for hiring Howard Stern for “America’s Got Talent.” He has turned off so many people with his vulgar language on every program he has been on. We will never watch “America’s Got Talent” while he is one of the judges.
The economy is down, unemployment is up, and new casinos and lottery games are proliferating. Why do the Powerball powers think people will have more money to spend on the game?
Boeing leaves, causing an immediate financial depression in the county. Financial recovery will be filled by all the winners emerging from the new Kansas Star Casino.
Evidently the police are not doing anything about loud mufflers, because the number of loud personal trucks is getting ridiculous.
How much difference is there between using a hands-free cellphone and conversing with one or more passengers? What about when the driver is trying to attend to a child in a rear car seat?
If you could guarantee that the only person who will be killed as a result of your driving and using your cellphone will be you, then I would be happy if you used your phone during every minute of your drive.
Since fuel efficiency for American-made vehicles is supposed to average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, the cars will probably be glorified golf carts, and there might not be any pickup trucks worth bragging about.
Monday’s Eagle said, “Leonard Pitts’ column will return.” Sad. A missed opportunity to move on.
