Now we have former players suing the Kansas City Chiefs for concussions that occurred while they were players. Wow – did they think they were playing cribbage?

Having a parking lot at the center of WSU’s campus will not increase enrollment, but a dorm definitely will.

So Sen. Pat Roberts says at a luncheon of the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce that WSU is the best basketball team in the state. What do you think he’d say if he were in Lawrence?

I am sorry, but if someone cannot afford a $390 mortgage fee added to the cost of a $150,000 loan over the life of the loan, he doesn’t need to be buying the home to begin with.

Why has Gov. Sam Brownback blocked the tracking of N350KS, the Beechcraft Super King Air owned by the taxpayers of Kansas? Has Brownback determined it is not our business to know where the taxpayers’ aircraft is going or when it is going? Is he trying to avoid the unwashed masses?

Wichita might have been in the hunt for the Boeing 777X work if not for the Spirit divestiture.

More corporate welfare, this time for Cessna. Where does it end? Perhaps voting certain people off certain councils would be a good start.

It’s hard to distinguish one from the other, Pope Francis and President Obama, as both espouse the Marxist philosophy of wealth redistribution.

It would be interesting to know how many Obama haters signed up for Obamacare.

So now people have to give all kinds of information to get health insurance. Then why is it so hard for those same people to get photo IDs to vote?

The next presidential election should be decided by a bacon-eating contest. At least that would make more sense than the Electoral College.

Let’s keep Christ in Christmas.

If a store chooses to offend people by saying “Merry Christmas” without knowing their religion, then I’m going to take my business elsewhere. Come on, people. Just stick to “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings.”

Every person receiving mail should be able to go a U.S. Postal Service website and choose the mail he does not want to receive, such as letters to “resident,” sale flyers and credit-card offers. I throw away about 90 percent of what I receive.
