I work in the private sector. I have neither a pension nor a 401(k). Why do I have to pay for the retirement of people in the public sector?
Does it really matter which political figures are for or against same-sex marriage? When any state takes a stand on it, someone goes to the courts to see whether the vote is acceptable. The courts have the final say.
We have a momentous decision this fall. We need to throw out the current president. He is clearly incompetent to do anything but campaign. We need serious, adult, rational leadership – leadership that tells us what we need and not just what we want.
As I think about the coming presidential election, I see our president’s imperfections. Then I consider the alternative. President Obama has my vote.

When Kansas needed money, the Legislature raised the sales tax, taking a higher percentage from low-income families. Now it wants to cut income taxes, which will most benefit high-income families. I’ll bet if the new tax cuts cause deficits, the state will raise the sales tax again.

Wichita should change its nickname from the Air Capital to the Barking Dog Capital. It would be nice if our city leaders would enact some barking dog ordinances with some teeth.
