Leawood trash, KCI, snow removal

I feel the need to point out that valet parking in Los Angeles is nothing compared with the haughtiness of trash pickup service in Leawood. The requirements to have your trash removed read like a manifesto.

KCI, health care, science and religion

The front-page headline on Jan. 29 said, “Business leaders decry ‘little league’ KCI.” May I suggest that these business leaders each should make a $2 million donation of their own money to help pay for the new $2 billion (with cost overruns added) Kansas City International Airport that they want?

President Obama, KCI, minimum wage

State of the Union, Edward Snowden, Dennis Rodman
