In Topeka they are dealing with one of those issues that just sets the average taxpayer's teeth on edge.
Imagine, Levi Johnston has a new book out, though you have to wonder how much help he had writing it.
Surely someone in recent months has noted that Charlie Sheen is his own worst enemy. They could make the same comment, now, about the Washington, D.C. police. They need to see serious reaction after D.C. cops drove at 80 mph or more to deliver Sheen to one of his on-stage tantrum sessions. Sheen paid them back by posting information about his high-speed run through the streets of the nation's capital on the Internet. According to ...
You don't have to believe. That isn't just an American reality, either, as much as we might want to believe so. Shakespeare put it well in "Henry V:" "Every subject's duty is the king's; but every subject's soul is his own." Your soul is your own. You don't have to believe. That has been left open to you. But it would be a great tragedy for you to make a decision without having all the ...
Americans have no absolute standards because we have been told for some time, now, that everything, including ethics, are conditional. There is no right and wrong, just the current condition - except, of course, when having a standard that is cast in bronze is useful to this side or that.
Materials, machinery and manpower. According to the old-line economists, those are the areas that make up any business. Those are the areas where you can make cuts when the time comes that you must cut. And every long-term business will experience times when there must be cuts. Life is just that way. No business graph is just a solid, unchanging, up-hill line. While private enterprise understood that long ago, it seems like our government "leaders" ...
No harm, no foul, no case - until next time, of course. You have read here on many instances about the inappropriate decisions that have come out of American courts, but here is an instance when the court ruled in a manner that will help build, not tear down, our society, and it deserves credit. It was the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled the National Day of Prayer is not illegal, as ...
Thanks to ABC Television, anyone who wants to sneak weapons or other contraband onto an airplane in the United States knows just how to do it.
Every so often our culture proves that it is just too warped to take seriously. Consider poor, poor Reese Witherspoon. OK, no one - at least no one in their right mind - argues the young woman isn't a good actress. She has made her share of excellent films. But having acknowledged that, she needs someone to give her the clue that she should learn when to keep her mouth shut - like most of ...
During World War II, there was a publicity campaign that featured now-famous posters that included the phrase: "Is Your Trip Necessary? Needless Travel Interferes With the War Effort."
Here's how the Bible addresses it: James 4:13-14 - Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Seldom do you see it played out so clearly as in this past ...
There's one thing you've got to say about advertising - if it doesn't work, it tends to go away.
There's an old saying that suggests we get the government that we deserve. That's a tough pill to swallow when we look around at our government - especially at the "higher" levels where there are some incredible stands being taken, and not taken, these days. However, it is certainly true that, if we do NOT vote, we deserve the worst government that is available. Today is your chance. Provided you are registered to vote, you ...
There were a couple of stories that may have raised some eyebrows this past week - radiation moving across the nation; Americans putting our young military personnel and our economy in harm's way in yet another Middle East event; the continual economic melt down, which came complete with some of the first admissions that we are facing serious inflation in this economy.
Most of us can remember the chilling portrayal actor Billy Drago pulled off in the 1987 classic big screen version of "The Untouchables."
A man's life is over and the more we hear about it, the worse it sounds.
The U.S. Supreme court refused Monday to hear a case by Amazon and Overstock.com challenging the state of New York's ability to collect sales tax on items sold online. Good for them - and especially to do so on Cyber Monday.
A record 141 million people were expected to shop in stores and online over the four-day Thanksgiving weekend that ended Sunday, up from last year's 137 million, according to the results of a survey of nearly 4,500 shoppers conducted for The National Retail Federation.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be a boom to the economy, but there are efforts that are good for the soul.
You'd think people would be happy with the rise of ethanol, a renewable energy source, taking the place of some oil, which is non-renewable. By creating another market for corn farmers, it should be a win-win.
Thanksgiving Holiday is traditionally a time to give thanks for bountiful blessings, food and family.
Last week, two guys from Norway dropped into an area business. They said they had traveled all the way to Barton County specifically to hunt at Cheyenne Bottoms.
Kansans and other Midwesterners have much to be thankful for come Thanksgiving. They are blessed with gas prices that are among the lowest in the country and an economy that fared better than that in other parts of the nation.
US Airways didn't earn any goodwill recently when it removed a blind man and his service dog from a flight at the Philadelphia International Airport. As fellow passengers left as well, the flight was canceled and everyone was given the option of a bus ride to Islip, N.Y.
