We are mistaken when we try to make this a story of the past. No matter how much we wish it wasn't true, anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and domestic terrorism are all realities in modern America. This is precisely why visiting the Holocaust Museum has meant so much to me.
More than half of state tax dollars go to fund education and health care. State tax dollars also fund other critical services such as transportation, corrections, public assistance, care for residents with disabilities, police, state parks, and general aid to local governments.
As you would expect, he was a braggart, but he mainly wanted to demonstrate to us what an efficient operation he led. Like a company marketeer, he proudly walked us around, Vanna Whiteing the number of printers and fax machines.
A look at one nugget of Kansas history suggests that we should regard national media analyses of Russia's claims in regard to Crimea and Ukraine with a great degree of skepticism.
From Arizona and Kansas to Uganda and Nigeria, U.S. evangelicals are exporting a gospel of hate that incites discrimination, suffering, incarceration and violence against gays.

"There's probably so many different kinds of albums we could have made, because they were all just little snippets, just moments, some of them maybe implied a song and some were just a lick. But I got all excited and I thought, 'We've got to keep doing this.' ... Some people go to an amusement park, we go sit in a room with guitars."
