No school on parade day? What kids really learned that day

Everyone is still talking about the Royals parade. It seems the only people complaining are those upset that school was canceled. Hordes of school districts gave everyone the day off. One letter to the editor last week expressed it this way: "With all the pressure on teachers and students to perform better, did they really need a day off for no real reason? I don't think that sends the right message."

Does the Bell Toll for the Fed?

Last week Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen hinted that the Federal Reserve Board will increase interest rates at the board's December meeting. The positive jobs report that was released following Yellen's remarks caused many observers to say that the Federal Reserve's first interest rate increase in almost a decade is practically inevitable.

Veterans: We Love and Honor You

Since taking office, I have had the privilege of greeting hundreds of Kansas Veterans visiting Washington as part of the Honor Flight network. This incredible program is an opportunity for these men and women to visit the memorials erected in their honor, as well as remember those missing and those who gave the last full measure of devotion in service to our country. Some of these great Kansas Veterans served in Vietnam, others Korea, and some even World War II.

Why Legal Pot Went Down in Ohio

The off-off-year elections have yielded some noteworthy results - Chris Christie's Jersey legislature has gotten bluer, Kentucky has gotten considerably redder - but election night's most fascinating tally was posted in Ohio, where voters refused to rebrand their state as Ohigho.

Robot Cars: The Return of the Sunday Driver

Perceptive conservatives have long been suspicious of 'mass transit' because of the term's Karl Marxian connotations. For the left that's a selling point because wedging the masses into mass transit allows 'experts' to decide where we will work and where we will live. The only roadblock, so to speak, is the automobile.

Now Republicans are Debating Their Debates

Two years ago, after the GOP had lost the popular vote for the fifth time in six presidential elections, the Republican National Committee autopsied the corpse and proposed a long list of cures. This sane suggestion appeared on page 76:

The Royals Parade: A report from the front lines

The Royals had their victory parade on Tuesday. If you know nothing about this event, you: A. never found the most obscure cable channel ever created, Fox Sports 1; B. traded your AM radio for a weather radio, which is amazing at warning about hurricanes and tornadoes but nothing else; or C. you just returned from a trip to the International Space Station and have some catching up to do.

Click to ‘Like’ Ben Carson

Facebook is a little bit like "Lord of the Flies," without the exotic island locale. It's a place where people can gang up on you in a virtual lynch mob if you stray from the communal orthodoxy, and they use the "like" button as rope. You have two choices: be shamed into submission or slink away on a life raft.
