The Mueller Report and the Danger Facing American Democracy. The Mueller Report and the Danger Facing American Democracy.
A perceived victory for Russian interference poses a serious risk for the United States. The report of the special counsel Robert Mueller leaves considerable space for partisan warfare over the role of President Trump and his political campaign in Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Exploring Outdoors Kansas: To smoke or not to smoke. Exploring Outdoors Kansas: To smoke or not to smoke.
I make few if any new year’s resolutions, but this year I’ve decided that 2019 is the year when I will take up smoking. For some time I’ve wanted to learn how, and since making my resolution I’ve been doing lots of research. As with any other subject, the internet teems with “how-to” information on learning to smoke, and as it turns out smoking is actually very healthy…. Oh, I can see now that ...

EDITORIAL: Monopoly media could drive us off our Rocker. EDITORIAL: Monopoly media could drive us off our Rocker.
Imagine having a compromised immune system. Your physician injects small, life-saving, pin-prick hypodermics every few hours for several weeks. Turns out later they weren’t immune boosts, but poison. Believe it or not, this happened recently. And may still be. Not with needles through your skin. No, from radios through your eardrums. Not from your trusted family doctor, but from your tru...

Principles, honor and the coming banana republic. Principles, honor and the coming banana republic.
Years ago, years and years ago, actually, while attending basic training for the U.S. Army, one of my drill sergeants allowed a couple of the female recruits to cheat on the firearms’ range test and to report more targets than they actually hit.
