I want Century II torn down immediately. I need the profits from the oil underneath it. I do not care about the water being contaminated. We can use fracking and have some vibrant earthquakes. Then we can advertise “Wichita – a city on the move.”


Tear down Century II and put in a casino.


Whenever the media refer to terrorist leaders as “masterminds,” are we giving them too much credit?


An Opinion page contributor said that “abortion care is a safe procedure. In the first trimester, the complication rate is less than one-half of 1 percent” (Nov. 6 Opinion). Since at least one person dies in every abortion, the complication rate is actually 100 percent.


I just found out that I can’t collect on my life insurance policy unless I die first. That’s outrageous. The government should do something about it.


Many who fell for the great Obama lie in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. They didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the Kool-Aid. Now they’re complaining about paying the price of no jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes and less freedom.


The State Department and the White House need to be purged of traitors.


We do not destroy a car because the radio doesn’t work. Nor should we destroy the Affordable Care Act because one communication system has not yet been fixed.


The nationwide Obamacare website failed in October, and they promised to have it fixed by the end of November. The state DMV computer system has been failing for more than a year, and they hope to have it fixed in another year. How embarrassing is that, and which can you believe?


I was passing through Newton one afternoon and decided to renew my driver’s license there. I was greeted by two charming, polite ladies. It took 10 minutes and was so easy, with no hassle and a good photo. It did cost me $20, but was it worth it.


Blow your horn all you want. Until the children are seated safely on my school bus, the stop sign stays out. It’s the law.


Dear “trick-or-treater”: I hope you can read Japanese. Otherwise, it will be hard for you to enjoy the books in the package you stole.


I’ve been handing out Halloween candy for the past 30 Octobers, and this year the costumes were particularly creative and the kids unusually courteous. My compliments to the trick-or-treaters and their parents.
