Oh Susan Twombly… what an incredibly, wonderfully un-thought out letter to the editor. It’s time for an interruption…
Twombly: In the August 14 edition of the Journal-World, an article reports on concerns that KU misrepresented survey data to justify opening campus to in-person classes. Why on earth would KU administrators do that?
You mention it later on in your own letter, but sure. Money, boo. Money.
So that they would have to work 24/7 all summer long?
If they worked 24/7 all summer long, what they came up with is embarrassing and a testament to the fact that overworking helps…
Many Americans have no idea how agriculture and agriculture policy works in the US. Congress revisits what’s called the Farm Bill every 5–7 years, but do most of us know how much this impacts our daily lives? The deals made in this bill directly impact the cost of our food. They also have an impact on how we protect our environment. I’m writing this article as a farmer who wants to help people better understand the farm bill and the complex food systems we have here in the United States. …
Have you ever heard of a suspended coffee? Some coffee shops will let customers buy a coffee and also pre-pay for someone else. The coffee shop will then put a sticky note on the wall. When someone who cannot afford a coffee comes in, they can take a sticky note from the wall and get a coffee for free. In this way, someone with economic means can pay for another who is without.
The Lawrence of the 1960s and 1970s wasn’t the somewhat progressive, leftish-leaning city some people think it is today. According to Rusty Monhollon, University alumnus and author of “’This is America?’ The Sixties in Lawrence, Kansas,” the community was tense and polarized along several different issues, such as the Vietnam War, racial issues, and culture, in terms of music and dress.
“It felt apocalyptic, it felt like it could be the end … that it was going to come to a battle in this town,” Nancy Stark, a Lawrence-local and former University student, said.
Lawrence continually props itself up as…
Before I even get into it, so what can we do?
Preface: UC Berkeley (and the UC system) has shut down discussion that is critical of Israeli occupation of Palestine on multiple occasions. Any mention of protecting all speech from any UC admin, official, etc. is hereby and as a result of their own precedents null and void. Free speech is simply not protected equally in the UC system no matter how badly anyone wishes this to be true.
Monday night’s meeting of the Lawrence school board was abruptly adjourned and police were called by an anti-black, racist after rightfully loud, profanity-laden protest from members of the community. The members of the school board attempted to silence the community by stopping the meeting on account of their own white fragility and a lack of accountability to the people of Lawrence, Kansas.
Members of Sisters With Another Purpose (SWAP), with the support of Black Lives Matter-LFK, took over the 7 p.m. meeting soon after it started and refused to yield the floor. Shouting ensued and tensions continued to escalate, with…

TOPEKA — A dress code imposed by a Kansas Senate committee chairman that prohibits women testifying on bills from wearing low-cut necklines and miniskirts is drawing bipartisan ridicule from female legislators.
Sen. Mitch Holmes’ 11-point code of conduct does not include a single, solitary restriction on men, who he idiotically said needed no instruction on how to look professional, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.
“Oh, for crying out loud, what century is this?” Sen. Laura Kelly, a Topeka Democrat, said Thursday.
Holmes, a 53-year-old Republican from St. John who should probably not be the chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections…
