Let's Ditch the Political Correctness

The latest example of this is the naming of Lew Perkins to the Board of Directors of USA Boxing, the governing body that oversees amateur boxing, including Gold Gloves and USA Olympic boxing.

Who Knows What????

Harvest is here. Combines, trucks, chaff and grain. Kansas big heart is beating in the hot sun and wind.
