Nice one whidbey. I saw him and his inbred crew demonstrating at the DNC last week. Would've taken him out then and there if the place weren't swarming with heavily-armed security forces.

But actually, Topeka has some really nice Art-Deco buildings. At least according to a book we got in the office last week.

I live in Lawrence. The first thing I said when I heard this (after I got done laughing my ass off, that is) was "you mean they just now figured out they have an image problem?" I just helped my sister and her husband move to Topeka. They both work there, and the commute was wearing them out. Their neighborhood is in the true Topeka tradition...a block or two of decent houses. then a block of crack houses and hookers, then a few more blocks of decent places. So even if your block looks nice, there's a good chance that someone has been shot at within a few hundred feet of your house. Topeka is what happens when you don't have good city planning and zoning laws.

"No slogan is better than a bad one," Wallingford said. "Maybe we don't use one. Maybe we get our theme knocked out and get some graphic that we can use that says it all."

Photoshop contest!

I lived in topeka for a short time in the early 90's. I actually thought it was a decent town. Juliekins is right though. You walk through a neighborhood and you'd better know where you're going, because two blocks over you're dodging lead.

The strangest thing about the town, though, was that at the time when I was in highschool, 1/3 of the kids were goth, and 1/3 were into Prong. I don't think I've ever seen a higher ratio of kids shooting for the subculture. Almost none of them were normal. I can only assume that's changed since then.

I lived in Topeka for about 2 1/2 years while I went to Washburn Univ. The only time I've actually had any crime commited against me was when I lived in Topeka. Plus, there is nothing to do there.

Somebody I worked with there lived in Lawrence and he said the difference is that if you are walking down the street in Lawrence, and somebody you don't know starts talking to you, they could end up being your best friend. If the same thing happens in Topeka, you should run away.
