• I appreciate the KU support. In terms of any endorsement being meaningless, that's true only if your measurement is whether that specific candidate wins. Personally, I expect Ron Paul will win. I don't have a strong opinion about who should win. Chris Peden did meet with our editorial board. Ron Paul's camp never responded to our invitation. I'd still like to have the opportunity to meet him and ask him some questions about the issues.
    I was fine with others on the editorial board, who had a longer history in the district, taking the lead on this particular endorsement. Believe it or not, the editor doesn't even necessarily vote with the editorial board's endorsements.  
    Rock chalk, fellow Jayhawk.

  • I'd really like to add a nasty comment here, but I'd hate to rip a fellow Jayhawk. I'll just say that this endorsement is pretty much meaningless. We all saw what the endorsement of Shane Sklar got him. He quickly faded away into oblivion which exactly where Peden and his negative campaign are headed.

  • I am glad that I see view counts getting higher on the things that matter.
    It is really dangerous in this day and age to not be involved in politics.
    Things are happening underneath our noses, and instead of having a voice - we sit back and just let them happen.
    When I see that people care enough to comment (on either side of the argument) - it really does make me happy - because it shows what is really important.
