L&T Publisher Earl Watt   Bruno Mars was the latest person to be attacked by minorities who claim he doesn’t represent his own culture and simply steals from others. It’s important to remember that Bruno Mars is a person of color himself, and his real crime is that his music appeals to...

GUEST COLUMN, Dick Morris   The key issue in the matter of the payments by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal is: Why were the payments made? Did the then-presidential candidate Donald Trump order the payments in order to win the 2016...

GUEST COLUMN, Star Parker   We are approaching the 55th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered Aug. 28, 1963, in Washington, D.C.  Reading through the speech, it’s hard not to be in awe, like those who stood and heard King then, by the...

A SECOND OPINION, The Wichita Eagle   There have been bills in the Kansas Legislature before that tried to return the job of election commissioner in the state’s four largest counties back to those counties and out of the hands of the secretary of state. Those bills died for various...
