First Mitt Romney and now Collin Klein. This country, in its present condition, has no regard for character, and ignores it when comparisons are starkly obvious.

Please, Gov. Sam Brownback – please run for president in 2016. What better guarantee of a Hillary Clinton presidential victory than if she runs against Brownback. Is such good luck possible?

I wish to thank Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts for doing their homework, seeing through the United Nations treaty and voting “no,” as it could have been a problem down the road and was not in the best interests of our cherished disabled citizens.

Shame, shame, shame on Roberts and Moran for not keeping their promise to Bob Dole. Keep this up and our red state may turn a cool blue.

The Americans With Disabilities Act is working just fine. Adopting a U.N. disabilities treaty in the U.S. won’t give the disabled access “around the world.” Let Third World countries adopt the treaty for their own use.

Both sides in Washington, D.C., are still trying to score political points from the fiscal mess they created. That is irresponsible and maddening beyond belief.

Thank God the tea party’s influence is waning. The tea party’s desire to abandon the poor, the meek, the sick and the needy most certainly angers the Almighty. Did you notice the drought coincided with the rise of the tea party?

I’m waiting for Bob Costas to tell us that if cars and booze were banned, Dallas Cowboys practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown would be alive now. Costas sure wouldn’t want to blame the guy who was driving.

The former Marine who took an antique shotgun into Mexico obviously forgot guns are outlawed there, so only the Mexican police and other outlaws – all of them – have guns.

What is wrong with the U.S. Postal Service? At one time I had a regular mail carrier. No more. On Saturday I had five pieces of mail, all for my next-door neighbor. Where do you suppose mine is?

Congratulations to the Wichita Choral Society on the 67th-annual presentation of Handel’s “Messiah.” The choir and orchestra were spectacular, and the direction by Shawn Chastain can be summed up by one word: Bravo.

You’d think people might wait until after Dec. 21, the Mayan apocalypse day, to see whether they need to buy Christmas presents.
