Opinion: How many more have to die?

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Guns don’t kill people; people do. We’ve heard it time and again, usually after some horrific shooting like the one that occurred Wednesday in a Florida high school, which left 17 people who had been about to leave school on Valentine’s Day dead.

Editorial: Tuition law makes sense

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Kansas legislators should reject efforts to repeal a 2004 law that offers in-state tuition to students who meet residency requirements even if they aren’t U.S. citizens.

Opinion: Fawning over Kim’s sister sickening

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Watching the media fawning over the North Korean delegation at the Pyeongchang Olympics, I recalled a picture that my old boss, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, kept under the glass of a table in his office — a satellite photo of the Korean Peninsula at night.

Opinion: 3 reasons Americans should be worried

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Seventy years ago, in response to the threat of a nuclear war, a group of scientists created the Doomsday Clock, a symbol to represent the likelihood of a man-made disaster.

Opinion: The guy who paid for silence

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 06:00:00 -0600

Dear Michael D. Cohen, Esq.: So you’re the one who paid Stormy Daniels to shut up?

Editorial: Compensate the exonerated

A proposal to compensate those who have been wrongly convicted of crimes in Kansas for their time in prison should be approved by legislators.

Opinion: L.A. mayor deserves a presidential hearing

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

It was dicey being Jewish in a Russia that was tolerant of pogroms, and then came the threat of conscription into the 1904-05 Russo-Japanese War, so one of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s great-grandfathers headed west to America.

Opinion: Kobach’s path to governor’s office

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

As the contest to be Kansas’ next elected governor begins, the probability that the best known and disliked Kris Kobach will be the winner is stronger than probably 60 to 70 percent of Kansas voters would prefer. Here’s how that Bizarro-World outcome could unfold.

Opinion: How America can ‘get to yes’ with Turkey

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Editorial: Time to pass gun control

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Common sense has taken a back seat to the NRA for far too long.

Opinion: Spending won’t transform America

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Bipartisanship, the absence of which is lamented until its recurrence reminds us of its costs, this month produced the budget agreement. It put the nation on a path to trillion-dollar deficits during brisk economic growth and full employment. So, Democrats face a disagreeable decision.

Opinion: Domestic abuse scandal is personal

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 06:00:00 -0600

For the record, the White House says it takes domestic violence “very seriously,” and on Wednesday, Trump belatedly said he is “totally opposed” to domestic violence, yadda, yadda, yadda. Take it for what it’s worth. It’s worth nothing to me, personally.

Editorial: A good strategy to fight hunger

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Opinion: Free-spending GOP needs reminder about debt

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Maybe America should change its initials from USA to ATM.

Opinion: Play ball, with informed intelligence

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0600

Even if, inexplicably, you occasionally think about things other than major league baseball, consider this: Why are many premier free agents, particularly sluggers and starting pitchers, unsigned even while we are hearing the loveliest four words, “Pitchers and catchers report”?
