Dear Editor, Oh, the drama! Imagine a president addressing a joint session of Congress. I think wars are declared with this calling of Congress into joint session. Heaven help us.

Kansas State University's WinterDance 2013 will feature ballet, modern, jazz, tap, a new West African social dance and more.
The weather over the last few days has provided an exclamation point to the end of the 2013 cropping season.
