My car gets enough bumps and dents in full grocery-store parking lots. Please don’t add to the mix drunks coming and going for their killer juice, as it will just increase my car insurance.

How many times does the Air Force have to say “no” to Beechcraft? Put your big panties on, Beechcraft, and tell yourselves the same thing you said to every person you laid off and walked out the door: “Don’t take it personally. Business is business.”

Contrary to the anti-gun way of thinking, self-defense is a basic human right.

Regarding the TSA allowing knives onto commercial air flights: We all understand the only way to stop a bad guy with a knife is with a good guy with a knife.

There is insufficient wealth in the universe to satisfy the avarice of socialist ambitions.

It is not anti-Semitic to realize that Israel cannot simultaneously be a democracy and a military occupier of a land with 2.5 million people. The longer the occupation goes on, the less likely democracy will survive in Israel. If there isn’t a peace settlement, the Palestinians won’t destroy Israel. It will destroy itself.

Regarding the person who asked, “Why are you liberals so afraid of us Christians?”: Why do Christians think liberals are afraid of them?

I’m Christian. And I’m liberal because I follow Jesus. I believe in loving my neighbor as myself, and helping those in need – even if it means I pay a little extra in taxes.

Liberals don’t hate Christians. Liberals are Christians. They believe that, as the Bible commands, we have a duty to help the poor and less fortunate, that we have a duty to protect the Earth that was entrusted to us, and that there is true beauty in the world.

Congratulations to the Wichita State Shockers men’s basketball team for an outstanding season. You played extremely well despite injuries that sidelined some key players, and still won second in the conference and tournament. The fans who traveled to St. Louis are so proud of you.

I was impressed with how good the Outdoor Living and Landscape Show was this year. I am surprised not a word has been said about its high quality. Congratulations to the promoters. We will look forward to next year.

The Opinion Line has been way too serious lately. Let’s all go streakin’!
