The drought is not over. The drought will never be over. Prepare for the day when freshwater and fossil fuels are both in extreme short supply.

People loudly carry on cellphone conversations in public places for all the world to hear and chronicle every detail of their lives on Facebook for all to see. Then they claim to be concerned about privacy.

Sooner rather than later, there will be marriage equality in Kansas.

There is a rainbow over the U.S. Supreme Court.

With deference to Howard Cosell: Down goes DOMA, down goes DOMA.

I challenge Leonard Pitts to rename the Washington Redskins and not offend someone in America (June 24 Opinion). We’re going to PC our country and traditions into nothing before long.

One of the big food chain stores is not good at removing expired products from its shelves. I routinely find products that have expired, sometimes by as much as six months. For your own health and safety, be aware.
