The New Gays

Since incumbent Republicans are in favor of gay marriage, it's clear-gays are out. Recently Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Senator Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) have endorsed marriage equality. LGBTs are no longer that group Republicans can win elections by promising to keep them away from us. The GOP swore to protect marriage and on their watch the altar was altered anyway. Now the party of Lincoln is gay-friendly, or at least not as successfully gay-hostile.

Champions for Life

Donor support from the "Hometown Team" made fielding champions more than a possibility. A string of Kansas State American Legions titles and regional appearances would springboard the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps onto the national stage.

Wheat Market show

If you are out and about in Barton County right now, you will be able to spot combines rolling through the wheat fields. To me, it is one of the best sites of the year, and I can spend hours watching harvest.

Time for the South to Surrender

Reasonable people have suggested that removing Confederate flags from capitols, symbols from license plates, and products from Walmart shelves is mere symbolism, but it's more than that. By recognizing that flying the Confederate flag is a continuation of a treasonous act motivated by racial hatred, we can end what amounts to a 150-year-long Civil War re-enactment and move the South into what Abraham Lincoln called its "proper practical relation" to the rest of the county.
