Since my son was born on the anniversary of man walking on the moon, does that make him a mooner? If so, he is taking his given title rather seriously.


I know I am in Seattle when a new Volvo station wagon passes by playing rap music.


If “busybodies” would stop meddling in other people’s business and take care of their own, they wouldn’t have time to interfere in something they know nothing about.


If Milton Wolf has no ethics as a doctor, according to Sen. Pat Roberts, how can he possibly be trusted as a politician? Wait – what?


As to why Wolf didn’t vote in all those elections: Maybe he couldn’t get away from work to vote. Perhaps Roberts is suggesting in his ad that we need to change how we vote in Kansas. With expanded hours, extra voting days or online voting, for example?

What would Jesus do about the children crossing the border? He wouldn’t want parents abandoning their children, and he wouldn’t want children being encouraged to break the law.


A country that does not control its own borders does not have any immigration policy. There may be laws on the books, but such laws are just meaningless words if people from other countries can cross the borders whenever they choose.


Our fundraiser-in-chief in the White House has alienated everyone except illegal aliens.


Meanwhile, Iran continues to make a nuclear bomb.


Why do Wichita drivers stop at the beginning of the merge lane that provides them a quarter of a mile to merge into traffic?
