Our third son Robert had KU orientation last week. He brought back a notebook "New Student Orientation Guide." The inside page said "Welcome to KU." Glossy with a big Jayhawk on the front, he dropped it on the dining room table where it didn't move. Untouched by human hands. Until last Friday, that is. I grabbed it between innings while watching the Royals play the Cubs. Aided by an adult beverage, cooler climes, and Bernie at my side, I struck pure gold.

Early last month, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott contradicted his core values by doing something that just didn't make sense unless you're one of those cynics who believes money corrupts politics.
