L&T Publisher Earl Watt   A recent editorial by NJ.com, a New Jersey news outlet, couldn’t have highlighted the bias against the Midwest any better. While a trial in Wichita has reached the midpoint on whether or not three Southwest Kansas men conspired to blow up an apartment complex...

GUEST COLUMN, Dick Morris   Recently released text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page — whose affair is becoming as famous as Romeo and Juliet — open a window on the pressure that came from the Obama White House, FBI and DOJ to surveil Trump aide Carter Page in order to...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR, Robert Caraway, Liberal   So you want to pass a gun control law? If you start at the federal level and go down through the state, county, and city laws how many gun control laws do you suppose are on the books?  1,000?  2,000? More? So you are admitting...

A SECOND OPINION, The Kansas Policy Institute   Calculations provided by Kansas Legislative Research (KLRD) show the $525 million House school funding plan would require a $306 million tax increase next year and a $293 million transfer from the highway fund to comply with state law. ...
