We interrupt this program for a rant

Posted By on Sat, Mar 17, 2007 at 6:35 PM

We meant to mention this story this morning. A state regulatory board director and his administrative assistant make off with a whopping $230,000 in improper expense reimbursements? He's quoted, through a lawyer, as saying, after paying back about half of the ill-gotten loot, that he wants to "get on with his life."

I'm all for that for him and his pal. As long as that life includes some prison time. A prosecution is overdue. The legislature is on a nearly rabid hunt of the poor pathological cripples who abuse drugs, to the point that they want to keep a centralized computerized register of my purchases of over-the-counter cold medicine. Do you think we could take some time off to send white collar criminals to Cummins and McPherson for a little scared-straight time?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
