    TOPEKA -- Gun owners who have a Kansas concealed-carry permit would be allowed to bring their weapons into more public buildings under a bill approved Monday by the state House. The House's 74-50 vote sends the measure to the Senate, where it's likely to get a cool reception. House members rewrote the bill so that it's not as strong as its supporters initially wanted, but it still faces opposition from many local governments and higher education officials.

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has boosted his environmental profile by signing global warming agreements with states and foreign governments, most recently one this month with the Australian state of Victoria. Schwarzenegger officials say the agreements are intended to force the federal government to take a more stringent approach to tackling global warming. But some critics note the signings have given Schwarzenegger opportunities for photo-ops with foreign leaders, and Democrats have raised concerns that the Republican governor is using the deals to predispose California to a market-based system in which companies can buy their way out of emissions reductions. Each of the...

    ANN ARBOR, MI — A federal judge in Kansas has ruled that Washburn University did not violate the constitution by prominently displaying a sculpture that mocks the Catholic faith. The sculpture, entitled “Holier than Thou,” depicts a Roman Catholic bishop with a grotesque facial expression wearing a miter that resembles a phallus. The sculpture was selected for display by the Campus Beautification Committee , whose goal is to make the University “one of the most beautiful campuses in Kansas.” The lawsuit was brought by the Thomas More Law Center after the University refused to act on complaints by numerous Catholics...

    Kansas Gets Its Own Gray Davis Here's what the good people of Kansas get for electing a leftist Democrat as governor: their very own version of Gray Davis to abet the state's foreign criminals. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has threatened (or, as the P.C.-crazed Wichita Eagle puts it, "promised") to work at letting illegal aliens receive driver's licenses and, unlike American citizens from other states, pay lower in-state tuition. At a weekend powwow sponsored by the Wichita Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, participants urged Sebelius to find ways to bring more Spanish-language classes to the state for those who refuse to learn...
