    Dr. Seuss’ colorful characters and rhyming whimsy have made the late writer’s books a staple in libraries both personal and public. But Seuss was not without his shortcomings, says Philip Nel, an English professor at Kansas State University. According to Nel, Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” is rife with racial caricature and “the influence of blackface minstrelsy lingers.”

    MANHATTAN, Kan., - Kansas State University apologized for a marching band routine that some complained looked like male genitalia assaulting the University of Kansas mascot. University officials said the formation during halftime of Saturday's season opener against South Dakota was supposed to depict the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek engaged in battle with the University of Kansas Jayhawk, but some social media users complained the Enterprise shape looked more like a set of male genitals. "We apologize for anyone offended by our halftime performance depicting the starship enterprise and the Jayhawk mascot," a message on the marching band's official Twitter...
  • K-State changes renames computer network iSIS to KSIS

    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State University is renaming its computer network system to avoid associating with a terrorist group. Chief Information Officer Ken Stafford said in a news release Thursday that the university will no longer use the abbreviation iSIS for its network handling enrollment, registration and financial aid. Stafford says many people have expressed concern over the network’s name because the acronym is also used by the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The network will now be called KSIS.

    I’ve brought you this story before. President Barack Obama seems to have the kiss of death for those he supports, including college basketball teams. Well, that curse seems to be alive and well in this year’s NCAA March Madness. Saturday night, the final two teams Obama had in his ESPN Final Four bracket lost in stunning upsets. Number one seed Kentucky was downed by West Virginia 73 – 66, and Kansas State was eliminated by the Cinderella of the tourney, Butler, as the little school that could knocked off the Wildcats 63 – 56. Losses by Kentucky and K-State mean...

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Most of these Kansas kids didn't have much to do with the "Bucknell Bummer." Now they have one to call their own. Marcellus Sommerville scored 21 points and made five 3-pointers, and 13th-seeded Bradley handed the fourth-seeded Jayhawks their second straight first-round NCAA Tournament exit with a 77-73 victory Friday night. The Braves made 11 3s to pick up their first NCAA Tournament victory in 20 years and advance to play fifth-seeded Pittsburgh in the second round of the Oakland Regional on Sunday. Unlike a year ago, when Wayne Simien missed a 15-footer at the...

    Bill Snyder, the man who turned Kansas State football from a national laughingstock into one of the nation's top programs, is expected to announce his retirement at this afternoon's press conference in Manhattan. According to a Powercat Illustrated story on the website, Snyder told his players the news around 9 p.m., which came as a "complete surprise to everyone in the room." The 66-year-old Snyder is expected to step down following Saturday's season finale at KSU Stadium against the Missouri Tigers. It will mark the end of possibly the greatest turnaround in the history of college football. Snyder, who...

Currier, junior in biological and agricultural engineering, said that none of the traditional fraternities on campus had an official policy about homosexuality, and he wanted to be part of an organization that was more open to his lifestyle choice.

    When a Department of Veterans Affairs panel produced a provocative report last week on the illnesses of veterans of the 1991 Persian Gulf war, it stepped into a treacherous territory where patients' suffering meets scientists' skepticism. By dismissing combat stress or other psychological causes and finding a "probable link" between the veterans' health problems and exposures to pesticides, sarin or other chemicals, the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses suggested that it was correcting the record based on the latest scientific evidence. But some outside scientists, including several whose earlier gulf war studies found scant support for the...

    Congrats to K. State, Big 12 Champs. They spanked the pompous overrated Sooners 35-7 tonight in the Big 12 Championship game. Meanwhile USC and LSU continued to roll with big wins(52-28 and 34-13(with 3 minutes left, respectively.) No way should OU be chosen by the BCS to play in the Sugar Bowl, the pollsters and computers should drop them hard to at least #3(Michigan is probably better, but they do have 2 losses.) What a fraud the BCS is, can anyone reasonable prove that OU is better than LSU and USC, both of who have dominated late in the season?...
