the real enemy

"Do we remember William Jefferson Clinton? I don't think we do."

Yep, I do...I was ashamed for what he did that as well. It doesn't change the fact that Bush is responsible for A LOT more atrocities in his 8 years. It's ridiculous to even compare the two.

Presidential pardons should be outlawed. It's clear they all abuse this power.

Fans not victims when players leave

You make valid points and there really isn't a good reason to be angry at Julian and Brandon.

However, the fan reaction does show the passion that KU fans have for their team and I should point out that it's that passion and support that makes KU basketball competitive year in and year out.

I just hope that Julian and Brandon realize that the fans that are hating on them are in the minority and that the true Jayhawk fans are supportive and wish them the best. Sometimes you got to take the good with the bad, unfortunately.

The Dev. . . er. . .video. . .um, DEPRESSION Made Him Do It!!

Well-put, Misty!

Proof of his primitive mind can be found in his taste of music...his favorite song was Collective Soul's "Shine" for chrissakes!!! Not only was it his favorite song, allegedly he was obsessed w/ said song and played it over and over.

I mean, who the hell is obsessed w/ this song, really?!

Can't Stand Losing Him

Kirk was an amazing musician and friend. He will be sorely missed.

Cheers and jeers after another KU win in Manhattan

Tip of my hat:

1) Bob Huggins for the guarantee and the bulletin board material.

2) Sherron Collins for the awesome games against rivals this year when we most needed it...Mizzou at AFH was the Collins show as well.

3) Robinson and Martin for not getting into it more than they did during the double-technical. With the intensity of the game, one swing by either player could've turned it into a real ugly were already attacking KU fans in the stands, imagine what they would've done had there been an on-court brawl.

Wag of the finger:

1) KSU fans for attacking KU fans in the stands and holding up signs that read "Tim Hardaway hates KU." This is violence, bigotry, and cowardice all wrapped in one.

2) ESPN's Top 10 plays on Sportscenter. C-Wrist brings up a good point about the east coast bias thing in regards to the overlapping games, but on the Top 10 after the game, I was expecting to see some Collins moves or even a Arthur dunk/block. Instead, Villanova got 2 top 10s and Pitt got another 2. In these 4 highlights, there were a couple of decent block shots, a reverse layup, and a pretty good dunk...nothing that compared to the Collins show.

Lawrence's Identity Crisis

What downtown needs is a late night diner and a marketplace w/ a good butcher, sells wine and Pabst Blue Ribbon (among other spirits), have a deli, and sells toilet paper.

The diner should go on Mass St. and the market should go at either 11th and Vermont or 8th-9th and New Hamshire to accomodate parking. This should also cater to all walks of life and not just expensive health food like Wild Oats.

North Lawrence needs a grocery store but the fact that there used be one there that went out of business is not helping its chances.

Perkins is a product of college culture

I'm not necessarily for the 2 games at Arrowhead, but C-Wrist makes some good points about money.

So, let's take a look at the big picture for a second. The idea is that extra money we make can be re-invested in the program which will hopefully make for a better program. Which, in turn, will bring in more people/money for future home games and that means more future business for downtown.

I'm hoping this is what happens. I'm not sure the timing is right for the game to be out of Lawrence since it seems like alot of downtown businesses are going under. But, hopefully it won't ulitmately make or break a business by next fall.

I'll give Lew the benefit of the doubt and that re-investing in the program is what the ultimate goal is for Lew...not to give himself a fat raise in 2 years. I guess time will tell.

Artful Thinking (Street Level)

Wakarusa Festival? No, that festival doesn't have a solid reputation anymore thanks to Kansas cops...I think it could recover if things are done differently, though.

But no, I'd rather have something that Lawrence residents/artists can be part of and that can have equal exposure of all arts (including films and music). I would also like to see downtown incorporated...only west Lawrence benefits from Wakarusa.

Artful Thinking (Street Level)

It makes sense to me that if you want to sell art in a consistent downtown venu, you need to co-op w/ another business such as a coffee shop and HEAVILY advertise it as a ART/COFFEE SHOP, not just one or the other.

Another thing that might work for a full-time gallery is to renovate an old East Lawrence building/house and have the owner live and operate a gallery at the same time.

Lastly, I would love to see a defining annual Lawrence festival that develops a solid national reputation. There are all kinds of festivals here but not one that has developed a national reputation or even a reputation throughout the midwest. In my perfect world, that festival would include all arts including a film festival and some live music.
