Potentate Politics

(‘Potentate’ synonymous with ‘dictator’ meaning ‘a ruler who is unconstrained by law’,) State of the Union Address, January 29, 2014: Obama tells Congress that if they don’t do his bidding, his Administration will simply bypass them, and achieve his goals by Executive order.  This was received with wild adulation and applause by the Democrat side […]


I just want everyone to know how much improved the bus service has become with Clifford Ketchum as driver.  After a long absence, I decided to give ridership another try due strictly to his personal reputation as a kind gentleman and conscientious driver. And I was not disappointed. The old bus from a couple years […]


I was saddened to read your “What If” editorial of January 7, 2016. In it you compared the rights of homosexuals to the rights of Nazis, the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and Cardinal fans. Blacks, Jews and LBGT are classes of Americans protected by the Supreme Court. One is born Black, Jewish […]

Farewell MMS

Dear Editor, On December 17th, I retired from Memphis Medical Services.  There is no better time than now to say thank you for all those individuals who put their trust in me.  It has been a pleasure getting to know many of you as I served this community. I want to thank all of those […]

Christmas Has Always Been Scary  

By Glenn Mollette Black Friday shoppers throughout America affirmed the hustle and madness of Christmas. Mall shopping was down by ten percent but zaniness seemed to be up by at least ten percent or more.

Schultz-Becker plan

Dear Chris, I appreciate Congressman Graves’s championing of job creation for pipe-fitters, welders, mechanics and electricians in his Letter to the Editor and message to constituents last week. I don’t know how many of those Keystone pipeline jobs would have employed Missourians, but I do believe there is a viable  alternative for job creation.   It’s […]

Not Losing is a Loser’s Game

by Dr. Earl Tilford The Obama administration’s weak and failing Middle East policy—the struggle against ISIS and the ultimate fate of the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria—revolves around a non-strategy of avoiding a major foreign-policy debacle in the 15 months remaining before a new president takes office. But it’s too late. Russia and Iran calling […]

Growing Number of Indicators Highlight Need to Revamp Federal Education Policy

By Mike Lodewegen, Missouri Association of School Administrators After more than a decade of federal intrusion into our local education policies, it is time for Congress to overhaul the system that is limiting student success across the country. Passed in 2001 under President George W. Bush’s administration, the law commonly known as No Child Left […]

Stem Cell Research at the University of Missouri – What are we trying to accomplish?

The main focus of my laboratory over the last six years and the reason why we use induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and human embryonic stem cells (ESC), is to study preclampsia, a common disease that affects more than 1 in 20 pregnancies.  In these pregnancies, the mother develops high blood pressure, excessive protein in […]

Energy-Rich Nation

Dear Friend, America is an energy-rich nation that acts like an energy-poor nation. Radical policies have prevented us from taking advantage of all the natural resources at our disposal, forcing us to rely on countries like Russia and Iran. That has to change.
