To the Wichita waitress whose blog brought out a lot of ugly, racist feelings and to her boyfriend (Jan. 29 Eagle): Hang in there. Just realize there are a lot of miserable people out there who are truly ignorant, but there are more people who truly love both of you.
God bless Ashlyn Sullivan and Ra’Montae Green for her courage in facing up to the bigots of the world. I’m sorry they had to go through this.
I’m a white woman married to black man for 37 years, so I can tell you the key to making it work is not making a big deal out of it in the first place. Carrying yourselves with class in public goes a long way to being accepted.
I work for the Red Cross, where I’ve learned that all blood is red. If you hate me for my skin color, I can still save your life with a blood donation. Please stop with the racial hatred for Ra’Montae and Ashlyn.
Before there is more talk from the Obama administration regarding federal spending on infrastructure, there needs to be a full accounting of the $1 billion already spent as part of his first-term stimulus programs.
Our peerless vice president, Joe Biden, now wants four free years of college. Great – how are you going to pay for it, Joe? Are all these people at the colleges going to work for free? That word again.
It was not front-page headline news that the U.S. Senate passed the Keystone XL pipeline bill. The Canadian oil company spent $7 million lobbying for this legislation, and now it wants what it paid for.
Republicans think they’re great at business but have made a terrible deal with the Keystone pipeline. Every state the pipeline crosses should receive 0.0001 cents per gallon of oil that passes. Then the pipeline would benefit millions of Americans instead of making just a few greedy rich men richer.
“Drill, baby, drill” works for me, cutting the price of gas almost in half. The likelihood that oil production activities cause small earthquakes, with little to no property damage, doesn’t change my opinion.
Nowadays if you hear some rattling in your cupboards, or feel some shaking under your feet, it’s just another Kansas earthquake, or it could be the sound of economic chaos coming out of the Statehouse.
I think that this situation with the WSU baseball team is way overblown. Why not stay with a fine and reprimand, rather than taking wins away from well-meaning players? So, they broke the rules, but who got hurt?
When we recently lost our beloved dog, our vet clinic sent a donation in his honor to the Arbor Day Foundation. What a class act.
There has yet to be a person born who looks attractive wearing eyeglasses with black plastic frames.
