Where were all you bleeding-heart liberals when there were charges of sexual misconduct against Bill Clinton? Sitting on your thumbs and saying what a nice guy he was? What was fair for Bill should be fair for Herman. Or are conservatives held to a different standard?

The accusations against Herman Cain do not pass the smell test.

I’m not a fan of Herman Cain, but what his accuser says he said is not believable. To his advances, she said “What are you doing?” and his reply was, “You want a job, don’t you?” What is this? The 1960s? Or were those words taken directly from the series “Mad Men”? Nobody talks like that anymore.

The earthquakes in Oklahoma were a welcome little jolt up here in Wichita.

Deadbeat dads: Your kids see right through you, and what they see is a worthless, vengeful dad who doesn’t care for them. Trying to hurt the ex-wife really hurts your kids, not only with words but financially. You are losing their love. Is it worth it?

Booze, bikes, bravado and babes. Time to remake the Toy Run or end it.

I’m sorry, but in the tough economic times, with high unemployment in Wichita, do we really need refugees?
