Is it a surprise the area surrounding the downtown arena hasn’t developed? How can businesses grow in a costly building area where business only blooms when acts are booked occasionally or during hockey season?

OK, drivers – the holidays are over, and you can slow down a bit. All of you can go back to your half-fast style of driving.

All of our foods have been genetically modified by evolving since the beginning of time.
Sitting on your fat butt in a warm, cozy house munching on chips containing GMO corn and trying to prevent the rest of the world from using fossil fuels and GMO foods sounds good. How many starving people in underdeveloped countries would trade places with you in a heartbeat?
While recently attending a funeral of a former Boeing Wichita colleague, I noticed the audience composed of so many talented former Boeing employees who were tossed aside with layoffs. What a loss to the industry, the city and the state.
