Roberts can get Ike memorial past dissent

Here’s hoping predictions prove true and Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., soon becomes chairman of the Eisenhower Memorial Commission. If so, Roberts must use his influence to move the project to completion. As it is, dissent over the memorial’s design has created nothing but 15 years of ill feelings and delays. It’s time for there to be a place in the nation’s capital that properly honors the life and achievements of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the supreme allied commander in Europe during World War II and the nation’s 34th president as well as a proud Kansan. – Rhonda Holman
