We tried to round up some of the better quotes — serious and not — from state and local public figures during the past year in a feature on Thursday’s Opinion pages. Some of the ones that made our list:
“Excuse my tardiness. I was busy subpoenaing all your medical records.” — Attorney General Phill Kline, joking about his battle with abortion clinics.
“I don’t understand why we need to be the capital of porn here.” — Wichita Mayor Carlos Mayans, complaining that Wichita has too many sexually oriented businesses.
“This is a great day for Kansas schools.” –State Board of Education chairman Steve Abrams, as the board approved science standards critical of evolution.
And brace yourself: Friday we are publishing our “Best of Opinion Line” — which we admit may be an oxymoron. A few comments from that list:
“I love Wichita, but I hate most of the people in it.”
“About gay marriage: Let them marry. Why should straight people be the only ones miserable?”
“I’ve been married for more than 20 years, and my husband is more than welcome to go to nude bars. Just because he knows what he is having for dinner doesn’t mean he can’t look at the menu.”
