    Tax policy, dumbed down for the campaign trail [Letter]
    Two things jumped out at me in the article "Candidates for governor differ on economic plans" (May 10).

    To the editor: I usually find Michael Hiltzik's columns interesting and balanced in their perspective. Given that, I was disappointed to read his "gotcha" piece about Kansas' tax cut. ("How Tea Party tax cuts are turning Kansas into a smoking ruin,"...
