Fireworks in the Fog

Aaaah. Fourth of July. The Great American Holiday. Dead-solid-center summer. Picnics, baseball, watermelon, fifth graders flying past with red, white and blue streamers flowing from their bicycle handlebars. And ice cream. In the street. From a truck. Blaring John Philip Sousa. Where's the bad?

War on Women Met by People’s Filibuster

It was only a matter of time before Texas women put a stop to the War on Women. Everywhere else in America, Republicans have lost elections by restricting access to birth control and abortion and making ignorant remarks about rape.

Obama’s War on Coal Goes to the Senate Floor

Changing KCI and why it won’t work

While most in Great Bend are more familiar with Wichita airport, here in Kansas City there is all kinds of chatter about changes to KCI. There are proposals and counterproposals, commissions formed, press conferences, letters to the editors. All the politicians and columnists who occupy the non-913 section have weighed in. Here is an idea: Ask someone who actually spends time at KCI. Like a frequent traveler. Not a contractor, politician or pointy-headed know-it-all. In other words, me.

Moran’s Memo: Show Your Patriotism Through Service

The Fourth of July is an all-American holiday – a day when communities across the country come together to wave the Red, White and Blue, and commemorate our nation's independence with parades, fireworks and good barbecue.
