Anti-climate change scientists oppressed

Over the years, two facts that have become self-evident to me are that “bright does not mean one is right,” and “learned does not sanction one’s conclusions as correct.” They’re disturbing and unsettling facts, which mean that the experts, who represent the consensus, are not infallible.

Seniors paying for others

In a country that holds great disdain for anything that bears the ugly appearance of inequality, Medicare and insurance companies gladly classify seniors based on age. It is the worst form of discrimination having your insurance provider force gravely ill seniors to write letters of appeal for much-needed medications, only to crush their last hopes with unthinkable co-pays and drive them into destitution.

Ideas: natural resource that never wears out

In Lexington this week, scientists from all over the world listened to and delivered talks on an agricultural future that could include facial recognition of cows, drones that monitor crops and robots that tend them.

Can’t vote for Trump

With Donald Trump as the Republican Party’s likely presidential nominee, many who, like me, considered themselves traditionally and morally conservative are beginning to feel displaced. We are now prompted to consider who is the lesser of two evils, Hillary Clinton or Trump, and to vote accordingly — and there is plenty of pressure to hold our nose and vote against our convictions. This is not something I am willing to do, and it represents a key misconception about the nature of a vote.

Bevin makes governing easy

If I had known that all you have to do as governor of Kentucky is to slash budgets, veto bills, make health care more difficult to obtain and make higher education more difficult to acquire, I would have run for governor, too. None of that is difficult. All you need to do your job is a pen.

Rater for walk-ons needed

University of Kentucky coach John Calipari’s recent announcement that walk-ons would enter the NBA draft has exposed a void in the basketball recruiting process: the need for a rating service for walk-ons.

Hypocrite or liar?

Every time I read a column or letter justifying why there needs to be another law about religious freedom or regulating decisions a woman could make concerning her body, I can’t help but consider that these are the same people who oppose gun laws, arguing that we already have enough laws on the books.
