Wichita restaurant burns down in what owners believe was a hate crime

Source: Wichita Eagle

A 2:10 a.m. phone call was the alarm that woke up Ranya Taha and Bashar Mahanweh as their restaurant was overtaken by flames in a two-alarm fire — a fire that they believe may have been a hate crime.

“We were first asked if we had anyone who would want to hurt our business, and we said no,” Taha said. “There was a small incident on a window awhile ago with graffiti, but we just covered it up and moved on. It was three months ago, and we didn’t think bad of it.”

Now Taha is not so sure if the Nov. 1 fire was just an accident and if the graffiti was just a coincidence.

After the fire destroyed their Jordanian restaurant, Petra Mediterranean Restaurant, and left nothing but charred contents inside, they took a walk around their building.

I'm registered to vote in two states; one of them is Kansas

I moved from Kansas to Colorado (hallelujah) in 2013 and promptly registered to vote again in Colorado. (I lived in Colorado from 1990 to 2013.) I just checked the Kansas Secretary of State's website, and, sure enough, I'm still registered to vote in Lawrence, Kansas.

Imagine my delight to send an email to Kris Kobach informing him that he had not removed me, a white person, from his state's voter roll, while at the same time trying to disenfranchise so many minority voters in Kansas City, Wichita and the state's other cities.

I also sent the email to the Douglas County Clerk because that's the office that will do the work.

Just thought I should let Kobach know.
