The price of government always going up and never comes down.

Don't give up the property tax "lid" for local governments. They will spend you out of your homes, farms and small businesses. Government only knows one thing - How to spend your money!!! They never cut back on spending.

Most growing cities don't have just one Headquarters building, but a number sub-headquarters spread around the city commanded by a Captain. It makes for faster response time and community policing where each sub-headquarters better knows their part of the city than just the main Headquarters where police just ride around the city in squad cars.

Regardless of what state you live in, educational costs always go up even when the number of students goes down. The amount of money per student is not the answer. Parents who get involved in their children's education do the best (Asian Tiger Moms). If you turn your kids education over to the teachers only and never get involved, you get what you get. Washington, DC, spends the highest per student amount in the nation (your tax money) and has some of the worst performing students in the nation as well.

Tom, You can huff and you can puff, but you make $50K per year and are a very small fish in small-town America. You think that you are a gigantic shark in the world's oceans. You will work all your adult life and barely make $700,000 and you will never come close to Beaty's 1.6 million. I graduated from KU years ago when they still taught journalistic principles, standards and ethics. You, on the other hand, barely graduated from some community college after 6 years, where they apparently didn't even teach journalism, let alone ethics. I'm surprised that AD Zenger would even grant you an interview, knowing that he was going to trashed. Tom, you need to get rid of your personal hatred and venom and go back to reporting the Good, Bad and Ugly about KU football or turn coverage of the program over to one of your better trained assistants.

The posters tell you why Lawrence is the most liberal city in Kansas.

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.
