Unfortunately, about half of Americans couldn’t care less about anything that’s going on, and only a fraction of the rest pay attention a little. What we are seeing unfold in Washington, D.C., with the Affordable Care Act should be a wake-up call for everyone.
I read with interest/disgust the Dec. 4 article, “Pinkel cashing in with bonuses,” describing the bonus money that coach Gary Pinkel has already made because of the University of Missouri’s successful football season.
The best crime prevention programs are jobs, good schools, and strong families and communities. Kansas City should be working full-tilt on those efforts. But dangerous individuals are in our midst right now, and leaders here appear to be well along on a smart strategy to deal with them.
As Kansas City nears endorsement of a resolution to champion the city’s role in the arts, the harder step is still ahead: Figuring out how to fund the vision.
Plenty of people in Kansas City and around the country will be giving thanks on Thanksgiving Day, appropriately so. But theres also a lot not to be thankful for, and here are 10 things on that list.
Arent those Real Salt Lake soccer fans so .... cute? Some of them have come up with a T-shirt that mocks Sporting KC, before the two teams tangle in the MLS Cup on Dec. 7 at Sporting Park. Stay classy, Real Salt Lake.
Pollution costs China billions of dollars a year in health and other losses, but that hasnt slowed Chinas growth. Chinas rich history and its ability to reinvent itself could help it become a global leader in renewable energy.
The country appears to have shaken off the federal shutdown blues, adding 203,000 jobs in November, according to figures released Friday by the Labor Department. That should light up the Christmas shopping season like the glowing lights of a holiday tree.
Sorry, Mike Burke, but promising an old time-y design for a downtown drive-through Jimmy John's sandwich shop is a poor way to sell the plan. Its lame, disingenuous and misses the point about why a drive-through might not be a great fit.
As Kansas City leaders prepare their proposal to host the 2016 GOP presidential nominating convention, it may be helpful to start thinking about what this bit of civic service will cost.
Well, that was efficient. In just one week, the Missouri General Assembly managed to pass an economic development bill a feat that often eludes the legislature during its regular sessions. Does this herald a new era of cooperation in Jefferson City? Not a chance.
The notion of a genetic testing company selling ones DNA code the way an online retailer sells email addresses feels decidedly creepy. But what if your doctor asks you to share your genetic information to advance the cause of treatments and cures?
This is a labor squabble. Boeing Co. is looking to cut costs in building its 777X jetliner because of competition from Airbus. And it’s looking to scrap traditional pensions for its workforce to get it.
Detroit is everybody's favorite byword for urban malaise, but don't think this is limited to the Motor City. Other municipalities and states have anxiously awaited the federal bankruptcy judges ruling on Detroit's pensions because they have similar or even worse pension shortfalls. There's even an ominous shorthand term pundits and editorialists now use: The Pension Crisis.
Readers dont always have the same opinions as critics. and theres nothing wrong with healthy disagreement. Part of the reason that a bad review of something weve enjoyed stings is that the critics negative take feels like personal criticism. Thats an impulse we should all resist.
The popular Jumble puzzle in the Preview section of Thursdays print edition is perfectly workable. However, that feature always carries the answer to the previous days puzzle. And confusingly, the answer today is labeled as Thursdays, and doesnt make sense with yesterdays puzzle.
President Barack Obama and the nation deserve a new slate of leaders to take over Health and Human Services, and thus the implementation of Obamacare, several parts of which have already been postponed a year.
Whatever the motive of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixons border war speech, in which he called for a moratorium within the region on offering generous tax incentives for businesses to move across the state line. it apparently backfired in Kansas, where work is going on quietly, behind the scenes.
Pope Francis has hit two hot buttons: He has questioned the efficacy of unfettered free markets and has encouraged de-emphasizing the churchs positions on such divisive issues as gays and abortion. Francis is the pope, not the president. Like Jiminy Cricket, he is urging people to let their conscience be their guide.
As a recent lawsuit made clear, much Cambodian sugar, destined for your soft drinks, is grown on large plantations that used to be farmland for hundreds of poor family farmers.
We need a leader like Abraham Lincoln to lead the fight to return to our created but unborn citizens the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness as stated in the Declaration of Independence.
A recent trip to my parents hometown challenged assumptions about those living in rural America. Im beginning to think that some urban dwellers have erred in how they view life in small towns. Im finding increased contentment in staying put and decreased interest in a supersized life.
Marijuana is a noxious drug with proven medical side effects that trump any reason to legalize its use, Ravikumar Chockalingam and Dragan Svrakic write. Our understanding of this drug and its consequences negates all reasoning to make this readily accessible to public.
Patty Prewitts case powerfully demonstrates the wisdom of our Founding Fathers in enshrining the clemency power in our federal and state constitutions to assure that our system of justice is, in fact, just, writes Robert Beaird, who was lead defense lawyer when she was convicted of the murder of her husband nearly 30 years ago.
