Re: “Liberty for All

I have been following the rumors of potential private development in Penn Valley Park with great interest.... and angst. I spent my formative childhood years in that park, have loved it for 57 subsequent years, and am currently writing a history of the area, which I hope to publish.

The very thought that any part of George Kessler's magnificent contribution to Kansas City might be appropriated for private gain is appalling, reinforcing my well-developed and wholly justified disgust with "developers," those cretins who care not a whit for the public good. They represent the same mentality as the "mossbacks" at the turn of the previous century who saw no need for parks or green space when the same land could be used to make money.

August Meyer and George Kessler must be rolling in their graves. Please, Kansas City, don't let the nose of this camel under your tent. This land is ours, not theirs.

Re: “Oral Argument

The article failed to emphasize the fact that Dr. Thomas already is a practicing physician (oral maxilofacial surgeon). His training at UHSA complemented his knowledge. He should be commended for wishing to attain more knowledge to better serve his patients. The program at UHSA does involve on-line clinical course work but it also involves clinical rotations in Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Psychiatry and OB/GYN and elective rotations. The fact that the course work (classes) are given on-line does not diminish the quality of education. Instead of sitting in a classroom you interact with your professor and classmates on-line. Its an excellent way of learning. Dr. Thomas continues to practice oral surgery, not internal medicine. The people who criticize him for attaining additional training and rightfully displaying that degree, are small minded and ignorant.

Re: “Always Low, Always

Yea - that is just good reporting.

Did you ever think the economy in Nicaragua might just be a little depressed? Maybe $3 a day is a good watge there - food might be cheaper, right? What about india? Hairuts are 25 cents there, and $14 here - you think that's unfair?

Nice idea - don't ever buy stuff from Nicaragua and these chicks won't even be able to make $3 a day - they'll be living in the trees.

Grow up people.
