Commentaries

About This Section
KPR airs commentaries, essays and sometimes book and movie reviews from a bevy of regular contributors. Some of our regular contributors include Rex Buchanan, director emeritus at the Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas, energy consultant Scott Carlberg and Bobbie Athon, with the Kansas Historical Society. Other KPR commentators have included William Jennings Bryan Oleander (aka Tom Averill), former Emporia State University professor John "Richard" Schrock and Kansas writer Cheryl Unruh.
  • Water is running low in parts of western Kansas. This has been true for years. But Commentator Rex Buchanan says the situation is getting worse.
  • Some things just sound All-American, whether they are or not. Take the All-You-Can-Eat buffet. This cornucopia of food was once commonplace. That's less true today. And maybe that's why Commentator Rex Buchanan swells with excitement whenever he encounters such a large and varied display of food.
