Kansas remains corked

Kansas remains corked

The Kansas Senate on Friday, May 16, elected not to take up legislation to allow beer sales from chain stores, and it makes little difference.

To be sure, if any such laws were to pass they would disrupt the status quo. But for the serious drinker — that is, a serious drinker by quality not volume — it really will not make that much of difference.

V.A. mea culpa, big time

Whoa, Nellie! I really stepped in it with both feet last week. Even though I am just a lowly columnist and not a reporter, you'd think I'd at least get some facts before I sat down at the keyboard.

But I didn't, and I made a huge mistake: I gave out untruths and reasoned from them in a particularly egregious way. It was downright Brownbackian in its scope and falseness.

The Texas Jewboy would make a fine Kansas governor.

Believe it or not, it's time to start looking for a new candidate and preparing ourselves to win the next Kansas Governor's election. I have found the perfect candidate, Kinky Friedman of the Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys. He ran for office several times in Texas and lost. What's wrong is he's running in the wrong state. Kansas needs and wants Kinky, not Texas.

Ah! Springtime in Kansas. Balmy days, cool nights and pollen on the breeze. It never used to bother me, but this year the allergies or hay fever or whatever it is has knocked the crap out of me. My head is so full of snot that it feels like I am walking in six feet of motor oil.

Why can't I like Hillary this time?

Why can't I like Hillary this time?

It's 16 months out from the presidential nominating conventions but things are already heating up. A butt-load of Republican candidates is staking out every possible position from fiscally conservative state governor types who might be soft on social issues to bat-crap crazy zealots holding ground on the very lunatic fringes from libertarian to pulpit-pounding values fundamentalists.
