Readers react to Missouri legislators, Hillary Clinton and cancer research

Aug. 26, 2015: So some Missouri legislators, including Republican Rep. Nick King of Liberty, think the solution for keeping their libidos in check when dealing with female interns is to require “a good, modest, conservative dress code.” Perhaps the General Assembly should consult with members of the Taliban. Their dress codes are pretty modest and conservative, and they do a nifty job of keeping women in the Dark Ages.

Letter of the Week: It’s correct to be politically correct

Adam Finkelston of Roeland Park, an art teacher in the Shawnee Mission School District and publisher of The Hand Magazine, writes: From what I have seen, when people bemoan political correctness, it is only to defend some insensitive and disrespectful remark. So what they are really saying is that they don’t have time to be respectful to one another.
