Let’s have the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee meet once a week to determine the level of the Dow Jones industrial average. After all, it is already doing so indirectly by controlling interest rates, penalizing savers and pumping up the Dow.
If vital information is to be obtained from captured radical Islamic jihadists, don’t waterboard or interrogate them at Gitmo. Just make them watch Obama play golf or shoot free throws. Then the “oral diarrhea” will begin.
Never miss a local story.
I see that we are now going to get two free years of community college so we will be well-educated. Duh. Come on, people, nothing is free except nature, the sun, the rain, etc. Everything else has a cost that someone has to pay.
Obama proposes community service to obtain community college tuition. That will last about as long as welfare-to-work lasted.

Familiar names are always at the bottom of the letters to the editor blasting the Koch brothers and Koch Industries for nearly every real or imagined crime against “the people” and “the planet.” Are they really as irrational as they seem, and do people really believe their craziness?

If Canada is so blasted proud of that nasty coal tar oil, why doesn’t it just use the pipeline money to build its own refineries instead, and ship the finished products from its own seaports? That way it could keep all the pollutants at home and not risk our aquifers.
One of the building blocks for family values is the truth, a value that Sam Brownback is incapable of.
When Brownback staged his inaugural prayer session, I hope everyone present had the sense to pray for his recall vote.
Our governor’s penchant to rely only upon out-of-state consultants is proof that he doesn’t have much faith in Kansas’ educational system.
The city raises water rates to help with the need for water in the future and then, with its wisdom, wants to waste water with a splash park. This just makes perfect sense for the type of city leaders in place.
Don’t blame Cox for not letting its customers watch Channel 10. Blame the station owners for wanting payment to watch their shows.
