Con­gres­sional seat

The Kansas City Star (Sunday) - - LETTERS - Mike Par­tain Lance Baum­gart­ner

Yip­pie — I saw that a plow had gone down my street. It scraped off the snow last week, and of course left the ice.

My ques­tion is why the city can’t put down salt on res­i­den­tial streets, es­pe­cially be­cause I live on a hill. Whether tem­per­a­tures are warm enough or not for the salt, it still should be put down.

Why? Be­cause if it does not melt the ice at the time, it will pro­vide some sort of trac­tion so peo­ple won’t slide around. And once the temps get up high enough for the salt to work, it will clear the road a lot faster.

Try it and you might see that I’m right.

Kansas City

I would like to an­nounce my can­di­dacy for Den­nis Moore’s con­gres­sional seat, but I’m go­ing to run as a Repub­li­can. It’s the Amer­i­can dream job. Where else can you earn a six-fig­ure salary while do­ing ab­so­lutely noth­ing ex­cept say­ing “no” to ev­ery­thing?

The Democrats have it all wrong. They work their tails off propos­ing ways to help the Amer­i­can peo­ple with lit­tle to show for it. As a Repub­li­can, I would be able to kick back and earn the same salary, and no one would know the dif­fer­ence.

Bet­ter yet, it’s al­most a life­time ap­point­ment. Af­ter all, Kansans, along with the rest of the coun­try, are ready to kick all the bums out. Ob­vi­ously, Kansas does not think its se­na­tors or con­gress­man are part of the prob­lem, so vote for me.

I prom­ise I’ll con­tinue do­ing what all of you have come to ex­pect.
