Will Joe Biden 'Feel the Tingle?'

The latest Joe Biden speculation basically falls into two categories: He's leaning toward a presidential bid (unless he isn't), and he's a potentially formidable candidate (unless he isn't). Truth is, nobody really knows. And that includes Joe, who at most has another month - until the run-up to the first Democratic debate on Oct. 13 - to make up his mind.

Reflections on CKMC and the passing of an era

Count me along with pretty much everyone else who is awash in nostalgia with the tear down of the Central Kansas Medical Center. Some readers probably have fond reflections about becoming moms on the birthing ward. Or seeing their parents discharged after a life-threatening emergency and greeting them with balloons, tears, hugs. Or perhaps being present when it was dedicated so many years ago.

EPA: The Cure's Usually Worse Than the 'Disease'

Like the road to Hell, liberal ideas are usually paved with good intentions. But, as Ronald Reagan once said, "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so." And all that vast un-knowledge births monster government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency, which end up doing more harm than good.

America's Heroin Epidemic

There were so many people buying "breakfast bags" of heroin from street dealers one Philadelphia morning, the traffic came to a standstill - and the dealers cursed at anyone who dared honk.

Marble Poisoning

It's a race to the outside. Avoid the middle like the plague. The goal is to not be one with the pack. Even the most conservative of Republicans knows they have to move beyond the rock-solid, standard-bearer of the party line. Anybody who wants the nomination today has to show some flash, be a rebel, an iconoclast, wear a puffy shirt. Wild and wacky is the new name of the electioneering game.

We Need an Exchange Program for Racial Integration

The best response to the Black Lives Matter movement is the one solution we're not considering: integration. Black and white Americans live largely separate but unequal lives, living in segregated neighborhoods and attending segregated schools that seem foreign to each other. We lack the political will for forced integration-even though it worked-but we should consider a student exchange program to build bridges between our communities.

EPA Discovers Water Flows Downhill

Only the Obama administration, with it's special kind of incompetence, could turn a mine that's been closed for 92 years into an environmental disaster. That's exactly what happened when the Keystone regulators at the Environmental "Protection" Agency decided to dig into a dam holding back dangerously polluted water at the Gold King mine.

What should be done with the estimated 15 million people living in the United States without the legal right to be here? It seems most politicians and many Americans come down on one or the other extreme.

GOP Candidates: From Bad to Very Bad

I plead with all the writers, journalists, pundits, posters, commenters and tweeters of the nation: Please stop calling the Republican field a clown car. It was funny and image-provoking the first hundred times I read it. Now it's the quip that won't die.

Sorry Donald, Substance Trumps Style

Donald Trump's commanding lead in the polls is a solemn reminder that if we're not careful, another narcissistic good talker will be elected to complete the fundamental transformation President Obama began. Choosing style and good sound bites over substance got us in the mess we're in with a president who highlights his intellectual shortcomings when he comes up with some real off-teleprompter doozies, claiming our country has 57 states, America is 20 centuries-old, "Austrian" is a language, Canada has a president, and dead heroes are listening in his audience, to name a few.
