Somewhere, over the rainbow, a blog is born. A blog for Kansas. A blog for America. A blog by a reporter with a difficult-to-pronounce last name. But most importantly, a blog that is AMERICA'S ONLY PLACE dedicated to the vital intersection of politics and Sunflowers. The Heartland gods nod in wise approval.

Keep them in your thoughts

Didn't intend to post today. Please keep the Tiahrt family in your thoughts and prayers.

From the office of Rep. Todd Tiahrt, Wichita's congressman:

Luke Tiahrt dies Saturday morning
WASHINGTON - U.S. Representative Todd Tiahrt (R-Goddard) and his wife Vicki mournfully announce that their youngest son Luke, 16, died tragically of an apparent suicide in the Tiahrt's Virginia home early Saturday morning.

The Tiahrts respectfully request prayer and privacy during this difficult time. Funeral arrangements are pending. Details will be released as they become available.
