Opinion: Brownback obstructs will of majority

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Opinion: President Trump and the ‘Madman Theory’

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

At the heart of Donald Trump’s foreign policy team lies a glaring contradiction. On the one hand, it is composed of men of experience, judgment and traditionalism.

Opinion: America’s predictable pension crisis

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Some American disasters come as bolts from the blue — the stock market crash of October 1929, Pearl Harbor, the designated hitter, 9/11. Others are predictable because they arise from arithmetic that is neither hidden nor arcane. Now comes the tsunami of pension problems that will wash over many cities and states.

Opinion: Echoes of internment 75 years later

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 06:00:00 -0600

Imagine this. You are a boy, living in a child’s blissful unaware. You are not terribly different from other kids. Maybe you play stickball in the street and pretend to be Joe DiMaggio. Maybe you listen to “The Lone Ranger” on the Philco. Maybe you’re crazy for Superman.

Editorial: Lawmakers miss big opportunity

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Opinion: A Trump bump in Moscow’s market

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Financial markets have been sending an interesting message about President Trump and Russia. After Trump’s election, investors seemed to be betting that sanctions against Moscow would soon be eased. But this confidence collapsed in late January, and Russian stocks plummeted.

Editorial: Press should be adversarial

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Give President Donald Trump credit for the no-holds-barred strategy he is employing in his ongoing war with the media.

Opinion: Let’s have patriotism, not nationalism

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

National Review has sparked an important debate about nationalism.

Opinion: New direction on education needed

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

American public school students fall well behind students around the world in math and science proficiency.

Editorial: Engineering growth impressive

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The University Engineering Initiative Act is paying big dividends for the University of Kansas.

Opinion: Escaping the White House bubble

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Donald Trump is back on the campaign trail. The White House may be in chaos; Congress may be struggling to deliver on a promised rewrite of Obamacare; our NATO allies may be wondering whether they can still count on the U.S. to defend them; the Russians may be so emboldened they’ve parked a spy ship off Connecticut and sent their warplanes to buzz U.S. destroyers in the Black Sea; but President Trump was partaking in a pep rally in Florida this past weekend. Will it work? Does it matter?

Editorial: Reconsider transit hub site

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

As the Lawrence City Commission considers authorizing another study to determine the right location for a transit hub, city leaders should look again at a location that has already been ruled out.

Opinion: Education gap between left and right

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 06:00:00 -0600

It’s time we talked about the most consequential political divide in this country. That divide is not between liberals and conservatives. Rather, it is between the ignorant and the informed, between those who have information and can extrapolate from it and those who do not and cannot. There is an education gap between left and right, and it poses a grave threat to our national future.

Editorial: Governor, let the tax bill stand

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

Kansas legislators have done what many weren’t sure was possible. They have written and approved, with broad bipartisan support, a tax bill that closes Kansas’ billion-dollar budget hole.

Opinion: An adult voice amid pandemic childishness

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

In his 72 years, Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, who was raised in segregated Richmond, Va., acknowledges that he has seen much change, often for the better, including advances in the 1960s. But in his elegant new memoir, “All Falling Faiths: Reflections on the Promise and Failure of the 1960s,” he explains why today’s distemper was incubated in that “burnt and ravaged forest of a decade.”

Opinion: A Legislature worthy of the Capitol

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

The Kansas State Capitol is a beautiful, breath-taking building. From the solid limestone foundation to the top of the dome, this structure exudes a solid feeling of strength and confidence, captured in our motto: “To the stars, through difficulties.”

Opinion: The case of the cover-up in search of a crime

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

It’s a Watergate-era cliche that the cover-up is always worse than the crime. In the Mike Flynn affair, we have the first recorded instance of a cover-up in the absence of a crime.

Opinion: Flynn gone; serious questions remain

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

President Trump confronts complicated problems as the investigation widens into Russia’s attack on our political system. But his responsibilities are simple: A month ago, he swore an oath that he would “faithfully execute” his office and “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Editorial: Info needed on parks plan

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0600

City commissioners are right to seek more information before adopting a new plan for the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department.

Opinion: Letter to our so-called president

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 06:00:00 -0600

Dear Mr. So-Called President: So let me explain to you how this works. You were elected as chief executive of the United States. I won’t belabor the fact that you won with a minority of the popular vote and a little help from your friends, FBI Director James Comey and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The bottom line is, you were elected.
