Roberts is retiring at the end of his term. He has been a bane on the people of Kansas.

On a KC television station, there was a segment about a company that has developed a bullet proof chalk board on wheels that can be quickly moved to a school room door to be used as a shield. It looks just like a chalk board but is much larger. Maybe 6" tall to near floor level. It could be used for people to stand behind for protection. I thought it would be a good start at protecting students and faculty until something better comes along.

Why do they need gifts at all? It sounds like bribery.

The Supreme Court ruled that the US flag could be burned as a form of free speech. This is just wrong. Disrespect of the flag seems to have started during the Vietnam War. Giving the speaker the "broadest possible latitude" could be problematic.

Look through the list of non-violent inmates to see if some of them could be released. That might help the crowding situation. It seems $44 million is a lot of money for a jail expansion. I would like to see an itemized list of what is planned.

In-state tuition at KU is $10,000 plus 5,000 for a dorm room plus over $1,000 in added fees. Out-of-state tuition is $26,000.

I clearly stated that I paid out-of-state tuition even though we lived on the Nebraska border. Out-of-state tuition is thousands of dollars more than in-state tuition. I would have gladly paid the in-state tuition but it was not available.

You seem to be good at name calling. Doesn't say much for you.

Do you think it is fair that I paid full tuition and illegals are granted in-state tuition?

westcl (Clara Westphal) says...

Tell me which states those might be? Does it includes all states?
We lived on the Nebraska border and I paid full tuition for my sons.

I hope he is successful in stopping this practice. There is a federal law that states "no non-citizen shall be granted rights that a citizen does not have". Out-of-state students cannot receive in-state tuition but illegals can. That is not right.
