INTERMINABLE TERMINAL DEBATE
The discussion continue about a plan to convert Kansas City International from three terminals to just one. Anecdotal evidence seems to suggest that many area residents are not in favor of the change.
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback gave last Saturday’s GOP response to the president’s weekly radio address. Brownback talked about his administration’s success in budgetary matters without raising taxes. Critics claim he was disingenuous at best.
Governor Brownback is expected to sign into law a measure that is described as a “sweeping anti-abortion bill.” The proposed law defines life as beginning at conception. The definition, however, will not change when abortions can be performed in the state.
STATE OF THE CITY–TAKE TWO
Columnist Kevin Collison suggests correctly that the essence of Mayor James’ State of the City speech was overshadowed by the melee that occurred at the event. Collison says there was substance that needs to be discussed. One example is the mayor’s comment that it’s time for a discussion about a thousand-room downtown hotel. Collision says considering all the studies and all the money already spent considering this project, that discussion has already taken place.
