    I have another Kansas question. Which album was better, "Leftoverture" or "Point of Know Return?"

    Jay, no offense, but considering your thread on the Journ board, about how sports reporters have it so easy because they really don't have to investigate or do serious legwork.......it's sort of ironic that you'd ask a bunch of sports reporters to get you information that you could have googled in about 10 clicks.

    That said, I once had a copyeditor at a publishing house question me on the use of 'NFL' as opposed to 'National Football League,' very worried that readers might not know.

    My question about Kansas: When will the people rise up and overthrow Phill Kline? The state attorney general is a thug - he's trying to get the names of girls who have had abortions. This brownshirt has be stopped before he gets any more political traction.
    Read "What's the Matter with Kansas?" In some ways, this state is more Neanderthal than any in the South. It has a Democratic governor because the state's real two-party system is the Mods vs. the Cons. The Dems can sometimes exploit a bitter enough Republican split.

    I have a Kansas question ... why is this a thread? It's a flat state and even Dorothy wasn't in Kansas anymore.

    Tell the editor, FU, it's KU, not UK.

    Don't forget Friends University in Wichita (FU).

    Or, as rumor has it, the former name of the school, Friends University of Central Kansas. 8)

    Hopefully this isn't outing the author of this thread, but didn't the Lawrence paper want to change KU references to UK in news stories (or something) and it caused an uproar?

    I guess Indiana grads can blame the dopey Big 8 schools for people calling them the University of Indiana. In Indiana's case, IU really is IU.

    And Purdue is PU, as IU grads like to chortle.

    By the way...

    My old school, Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, is IUPUI. But Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne is IPFW. I don't know why it's not IUPUFW, but it isn't.
