17In any human endeavor there is no substitute for the energy and enthusiasm and confidence of the young. That’s all the 2015 Kansas University football team and their coaching staff have going for them at this point in time. Without going into boring detail, it’s obvious to qualified observers that KU is short on talented […]

Chuck Hageman seems to think killing unborn babies is the only solution to “unwanted” pregnancies. Well, what’s the solution for people that have other children who are unwanted?

By Dorothy Rosby In a few days, I’ll be 30 years old. And then some. And then some more. So I was intrigued when I opened my internet this morning to the following headline: 30 Experiences You Should Have Before You Turn 30. But apparently I was not that productive during my first 30 years […]
