Here is a sampling of social media comments about stories from across the state:

Hutchinson News: U.S. Sen. Roger Marshall opposes moving ahead with hate crimes bill

Timothy Pool: As opposed by the fine senator from KKKansas. He needs to be sent back to Russia with his insurrectionist buddies

Travis Letterman (Timothy Pool): Don’t speak ill of mother Russia

Cynthia Dierks: I don't think Marshall has any idea what Kansan's really think. He just votes how he thinks Trump wants him to vote or how ultra conservative republicans want him to vote so he can stay in their good graces and curry favor.

Donnis Shipley: All crimes are hate crimes. Why do we need another law stating the obvious?

Jason Bowers-Chaika (Donnis Shipley): No, bias crimes are not only against the victim but against every member of the group targeted for belonging to that group.

Randy Buggeln: And the sheeples show up once again. We not only have laws against personal violence, we also have hate violence laws already on the books. Can you say sheeple idiots???

Luke Bauman: The single most hated group of people in America now are cisgender white Conservative Republican Christian men. Will we pass Federal legislation to confront hate crimes against that group of people?

Mason Long: The Democrats are going to 100% ruin this country. We're so screwed

Salina Journal: Halt on J&J vaccine to continue until more data is available

Joan Ratz: Less than one in a million. Much higher instances from smoking, birth control/HRT, etc, but the one that saves lives gets a pause?

Lori Cuzick Trow (Joan Ratz): this is crazy. I got that vaccine last week. No issue other than being exhausted the next day

Tom Birdsey: It's only a matter of time that "All" the side effects from all three companies are exposed. Are you worried about what they put into you yet?

...you should be.

Susan Harvey Hammond: This is how science works: See a problem? Stop and take a look. Figure it out. Do something about it. Tell the truth.

Michael Crosson: I got the J&J vaccine. No issues.

Pittsburg Morning Sun: Timeline delayed for graduation requirements for civics, financial literacy

Jeremy Brittle: It stupid test if you don't know basic civis before your senior year teachers failed.

Marilyn Bishop: All students need is another #&%$ test! Give them a break!

Jaci Gilchrist Jenkins: It's probably delayed because the people writing the bill couldn't pass the civics test OR finance class themselves.

Topeka Capital-Journal: Victims of drunken driving can't sue Kansas bars. Advocates want that to change.

Brad Morris: Can victims of texting and driving sue Apple? Well, maybe if they were a small business..

Kriss DeForest: What’s next? Allowing families of heart attack victims to sue Dillons for selling their loved one candy bars, Cheetos and soda?

Michael Anderson: This makes life hell for bartenders, who see people that pretend to sober up when they ask for drinks! What about personal responsibility????

Chris Meier: Why stop there. Let's hold McDonalds and other fast food establishments responsible for heart disease, diabetes, obesity etc.....what a damn joke

Mary Frost: Why make someone else responsible for another's actions? Personal responsibility seems to be a thing of the past. I understand we all want noone driving if they are drunk or on drugs but would the business also be responsible for taking the keys and making sure that person gets home safe?
