You should not judge what others do.
The financial situation and recent elections in Greece are once again bringing to the forefront the deficit issues in our own country. Admirably, the citizens of Greece elected the party vowing to stay in the European Union but work toward reducing the harsh terms of the bailout program.
Elder abuse is a hidden epidemic that annually impacts the health and well-being of 6 million older people, as well as their families and caretakers. As U.S. Attorney in the District of Kansas, I am dedicating our office to join in the drive to protect older Americans.
My wife, son and I visited Manhattan this past weekend.
From out of the green mist enveloping the campaign doldrums they come. Relentlessly. Doggedly. Cattedly. Trudging, blank-faced and soulless. Armies of cash-hungry zombies brandishing partisan pickaxes, shovels and crowbars, with only one goal rattling around their feverish brains. Campaign booty. Pieces of eight. Entire 8s. Eight-figured 8s.
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?
Eighteen year old Justin Combs accepted a full-ride football scholarship this month to UCLA.
As a kid growing up in an era of limited television viewing options (we had three channels, maybe four when the wind didn't blow or there were no clouds), the few programs we watched left lasting impressions. One I keenly recall came on Sunday evenings. It was the Wonderful World of Disney.
HOLLYWOOD – God bless America, and how's everybody?
This weekend marks the opening of a grand, five-year experiment. The first-ever June Jaunt opens Friday and runs through Sunday.
It's official. My youngest son has graduated from Great Bend High School.
HOLLYWOOD--God bless America, and how's everybody?
CHEYENNE BOTTOMS - I learned some significant things on my outing with Eric Giesing and Dr. Dan Witt at Cheyenne Bottoms this week.
HOLLYWOOD--God bless America, and how's everybody?

We like to be kind to other people.
Well, the joke's on us. Remember during the recent "Saturday Night Live" anniversary special when Sarah Palin conducted a faux Q&A with Jerry Seinfeld? It went like this:
Some members of the legislative and executive branches of Kansas government have publicly expressed their admiration for many "things Texan." For example, they acclaim Governor Rick Perry's conservative leadership and praise Texas' lack of a state income tax. Their high regard for our southerly neighbor may explain why our legislature is considering whether Kansas should switch to Texas' system for selecting Supreme Court justices. Texas procures justices through statewide elections.
I admit it: I love the snow and the cold.
How much should the government fine people whose children are deemed by (some) well-meaning bureaucrats as "obese?"
It was one year ago last weekend that a violent coup overthrew the legally elected government of Ukraine. That coup was not only supported by U.S. and European governments -- much of it was actually planned by them. Looking back at the events that led to the overthrow it is clear that without foreign intervention Ukraine would not be in its current, seemingly hopeless situation.
My oldest son is handsome, smart, and, in the words of my old boss Ann Richards, very nearly perfect. I love him boundlessly, so it hurts me to know that his homeland has been at war for every single day of his life except for a few months in 2001 when he couldn't yet crawl. Now he's shaving, and for the first time in his life he might get to witness a real discussion about going to war.
I'd advise you to sit down, pour yourself a beer and take a deep breath. You're about to hear something that will change your life. Forever. Are you relaxed?
Are you an unsung hero? Do those you encounter not appreciate the "real" you? Must you always having the last word?
Jeb Bush insists he's not his brother's keeper, but, alas, he's stuck being his brother's baggage schlepper.
Proponents of President Obama's 332-page plan to regulate the Internet insist they oppose content control. They even style themselves defenders of free speech. But there is a very serious risk that changing the Internet from an unregulated free enterprise into a heavily-regulated public utility will lead over time to content control.
Where does the Obama Administration find these people?
For President Obama and the unlawful immigrants he is determined to reward with work permits, social security numbers, and welfare benefits, last week was triumphant. As the congressional February 27 deadline for funding the Department of Homeland Security draws closer, insiders learn with each passing day that Obama's executive action is much more expansive than originally presented.
Last week President Obama sent Congress legislation to authorize him to use force against ISIS "and associated persons and forces" anywhere in the world for the next three years. This is a blank check for the president to start as many new wars as he wishes, and it appears Congress will go along with this dangerous and costly scheme.
"Boy, here's something we could use more of today: unity among the American people. Americans are so divided."
