Happy Birthday to Milton Friedman, the modern champion of school choice. “Improved education is offering a hope of narrowing the gap between the less and more skilled workers, of fending off the prior prospect of a society divided between the “haves” and “have nots,” of a class society in which an educated elite provided welfare for a permanent class of unemployables.” The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice Milton Friedman Free To Choose Network

"One final thought: the measure of the success or failure of these tax cuts shouldn’t just be the effect they have on the bottom line of the Kansas state budget. The measure should be the effect they have on the budgets of the individuals, families, and businesses that are residents of Kansas. In the end it’s money that belongs to them."

Wichita IS an Interesting and Vibrant Community
Posted by Todd Davidson on Tuesday, April 17, 2012

This week Wichita Downtown Development Corp. (WDDC) is hosting workshops to foster grassroots community engagement for downtown Wichita.  During these workshops participants will be given an imaginary $500 to make Wichita a “better more interesting place,” which begs the question will any group reward the people already working hard to make Wichita an interesting place?

My first thought is to donate $500 to the unfortunate tornado victims.

logoIf it were not for Saturday’s storms I would first use the money to treat the office to authentic Mexican cuisine at Angela’s Café on the corner of E Central and N Mosley ($50).

On my way home I’d stop by Yoder Meats to buy some award winning smoked meats and cheeses.  Next door at the Seafood Shop I’d pick up some fresh lobster tail, ($100, yes you can get fresh seafood in land locked Wichita)!

To go with my surf and turf dinner logoI’d buy a bottle of Grace Hill Winery’s fine Cabernet Franc, made from grapes grown right here in Kansas ($24).  Then travel up northwest to the Wichita Brewing Company to purchase a growler of their handcrafted Half-Wit Wheat ($16).

All this driving around would surely wear down my tires, fortunately Wichita is home to Tracy’s Automotive, where I can receive a much needed tune-up and new set of tires ($250).

logoWhile waiting on my new tires I would enjoy some live music as I chow down on a delectable Maple Bacon donut at the Donut Whole ($10).

Luckily Safe Riders could drive me to the Shockers game where I can enjoy the 70 and sunny weather with friends ($50).

Wichita is home to an “interesting” community; let’s stop implying that our hard working businesses are boring and start rewarding the individuals that have been here making this community great.
