Wichita doesn’t need to attract new business. We need to keep the businesses that have stuck with us through hard times and to help them grow. Find ways to increase the incomes of those who make the economy work. Stop taking from those who breathe life into your economy to give money to rich developers.

As bad as things are with our elected “leaders,” we can still change things without a shot being fired or a drop of blood being spilled – by voting. It’s our system, and it still works. Take advantage of it while you still can.

Thousands of business and professional people, in a blitz of jumbo postcards and radio, TV and newspaper advertising, will recommend that you vote for Gov. Sam Brownback because he let them out of paying state income tax. Sack him instead.

Just like a basketball player, “one and done” for our clueless governor would be good for Kansas. Go, Paul Davis.

The best thing going for the Brownback agenda is the people who are opposing it.

Perhaps the “mechanical problems” The Eagle experienced Sunday were simply karma for deciding to run the grossly biased, if not insulting, article about the GOP and Benghazi on Saturday. People are tired of the liberal media circling the wagons to protect the incompetence of this White House.

President Obama delivered some great comedy lines at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. But then this administration as a whole has turned into a joke.

Resignation or impeachment? That is the question.

I wish the River Festival were starting Friday. Then we would get some rain.

Nothing disturbs me more than to see a driver of a vehicle with a firefighter tag throw a lit cigarette out of the window on a hot, breezy day.

I’m missing out on one of the joys of spring – sleeping with my windows open, enjoying the cool breeze and birdsong to wake me up. Instead, my eyes are burning, my nose is running and my throat is scratchy because of the incessant field burning.

I’d like to thank whoever decided they didn’t want the two black cats that are now hanging out in our neighborhood, having snarling cat fights, going potty in our yard and driving my poor, old dog to distraction.

Don’t those of you who bring babies and dogs to the racetrack realize that the decibel level will damage hearing?
