Do like Tom Keegan does and blame it on the KU football team and the lack of spectators!

Every able bodied person should work who receives tax payer dollars from state or federal social programs. Why would any tax payer want to pay for an able bodied person to sit on his or her butt and get free government handouts while you work for your money?

I lived in Californian for 15 years. They spend tons of money on education at all levels. They have the same different levels in academic achievement between racial groups, except for Asian students who usually out-achieve whites. It's not the amount of money spent on education, it's whether or not education is important to the parents, who push their children to do well in school.

I attended KU on the GI Bill during the early 70"s and graduated with not one dollar of student debt. You just had to willing to go to Vietnam when called. I volunteered. Of course, I was in the Air Force.

The same people who were against the chicken processing plant will now complain to their local politicians that their are no decent paying jobs in NE Kansas.

In a 50-50 nation, each state should be required to keep their voter rolls clean by removing the dead, illegal aliens, voters who have left the state and voters who haven't voted for several years. Both parties that dominate a certain state want dirty voter rolls to stuff the voter booths in close elections.

Brownback's tax cuts would have worked, except due Obama's national economy, the oil industry and America's agricultural industry went into a depression and never came out of it until Trump was elected. I will agree that when Brownback realized the problem of lower state income, he should have corrected some of his tax cuts to bring more revenue. Government spends too much taxpayer money whether at the national, state or local levels of government. Too many citizens and non-citizens expect someone else (the taxpayer) to take care of them instead of working themselves.

When I graduated from Newton high school in '65, the school provided beginning courses in drafting, basic electrical, woodworking and vocational machine shop. After high school, there were blue collar jobs at area farm manufacturing businesses. Most of that vocational training has disappeared from high school every where in the nation. That's one reason why manufacturers have nearly a million highly skilled jobs with no one to fill them. Germany splits their students early in elementary school into college and vocational students. The problem with that system is it doesn't take into account late academic bloomers.

The offensive line is the one area where our recruits aren't up to Big 12 standards. Our recruits are shorter, have less body weight and take one or two years to get up to speed. Hopefully, our recruiting will overcome those limitations in future recruiting classes once we start winning.

Regardless of what state you live in, most people who refuse to buy health insurance would rather use the local Emergency Room as their health insurance and have a couple of 30-packs and a half dozen dubbies for the weekend. People who don't have health insurance, don't think that it is important.
