Kansas Legislature Wants to Marry You!

TOPEKA, Kan. - State Representative Anthony Brown, R- Eudora, is sponsoring the Covenant Marriage proposal approved Thursday by the Kansas House. This proposal was added to House Bill 2667 which deals, ironically, with issues of custody, property, and, even protection from abuse.

The bill was approved on a vote of 70-49. As written and passed, a covenant marriage is "a marriage entered into by one male and one female who understand and agree that the marriage between them is a lifelong relationship". By affidavit all who, voluntarily, enter into a covenant marriage are testifying that they have completed pre-marital counseling and fully understand that dissolution of their marriage shall be granted on limited grounds including, confinement of one spouse in a mental institution for a period of two years or more, or failure to perform a material marital duty or obligation. Bills and proposals such as the Covenant Marriage proposal purport to be about strengthening families and the institution of marriage.

Here's Looking at You, Kid!

TOPEKA, Kan. - I have a thing about my eyebrows. The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but, eyebrows definitely let you know what decade that soul was hanging out in. As a girl in the early 70's my look was totally natural. By the end of August, my eyebrows were bleached white, sometimes with a green tint from all the chlorine in the public pools where I spent my summer days.

By the mid-70's I had been introduced to woman's greatest friend... and, enemy, the tweezers. I spent many a Saturday during my 9th grade year sitting on the sink in our upstairs bathroom gazing at my eyebrows and plucking. And plucking. I plucked so much that summer that I had that perpetually surprised look as if I had just seen the neighbor boy naked in his back yard.

Which I swear never happened.
