Kansas is in the middle of a crisis, COVID-19 has changed how we look at everything. Schools cancelled, you can’t get a haircut, main street shutdown, sports from little league to Major League impacted. Kansas is in crisis, a crisis in confidence.

Unbelievable! After so many of our citizens have suffered painful losses of jobs and their very livelihoods, our city fathers are still planning to forge ahead with a $4 million new "safety center.” It would seem wise that, in the light of the present difficult and unknown circumstances, suc…

Wake up people. One must ask where is our city commission and chamber of commerce while all the businesses are closing. Look around, not only is our downtown dead with empty buildings but now it's reaching north of downtown.

I write this in a state of turmoil for having learned the term “necropolitics” this morning on MSNBC. Professor Brittney Cooper of Rutgers explained the politics of who is dying from COVID-19 in this country, and I am so (place appropriate adjective here) about this. Distressed. Angry. Disgu…
