The Keystone XL pipeline situation shows that unions are at the bottom of the food chain in the Obama administration. They take a backseat to most of the wacky far left.

“Obamacare: 8 Million Enrolled Including 35 Percent Young People” is a fairy tale that belongs on the shelf next to my copies of “Cinderella” and “The Three Little Pigs.”

Good news: East High School ranked best in state. Bad news: Kansas ranks 47th in state-by-state rankings of the nation’s public high schools. Make that “very” bad news.

It is little wonder some people whine about not enough money for education when tax money is wasted on full-size buses leaving a main street to pick up a single child in a residential neighborhood.

I can’t believe I am saying this, but after the school-funding and health compact votes I will be helping Democrats this election.

It’s interesting to note how many of the bills the governor is signing had no committee hearings and were passed with little discussion. Do we now have a stealth government in Kansas, or government by special interests?

Just how dangerous are the senior citizens of Mulvane that some skittish mothers feel that their children are in harm’s way when these citizens use the walking track, separated by locked doors from the school, in a joint-use building that they are helping pay for?

Now that’s what I call paranoia: Mulvane residents thinking that senior citizens doddering around a track somehow threaten their children.

How many recalls will it take and how may lives will be lost before corporate America realizes that buying cheap, outsourced products is a time bomb?

A contract crew has done minor street repair at 21st and Oliver, closing two or three lanes at a time and creating massive traffic jams. Why doesn’t the city contract this type of work at night, so thousands of Wichitans would not be inconvenienced?

I’m a great worker as long as I’m not being harassed.

Please don’t leave outdoor lights on all night, especially if they would shine into a neighbor’s bedroom. People have to get up early for work most days.

Why would anyone attend an estate sale, roam around the house, rip a clock off the wall that was obviously wired in, leave the live wires, and not tell the sellers?
