    Mainly because it's your first DKos diary and you made a lot of good points. I hope you keep writing essays here.

    One of these days I'm gonna read that book, "What's the Matter With Kansas?" which argues that people in KS should be Democrats. My girlfriend and her father both have advanced degrees from KU. So I occasionally have to listen to them say things like "Rock Chalk Jayhawks," whatever that means.

    The Kansas governor, Alf Landon (who lost to FDR in a landslide in 1936), was a relatively liberal Republican. Since then, it's been mostly downhill. The current governor, Brownback, seems to be intent on making Kansas a meaner and poorer version of Texas.
