Gov. Sam Brownback’s eighth and final State of the State address elicited an interesting mix of reactions earlier this week, with some Democrats lauding him for calling for an investment of $600 million over five years in the K-12 system, while some of his allies among the Republican leadership in the legislature called that proposal reckless.

Brownback also mentioned the state’s low unemployment rate, the opening of the new Robert E. Hemenway Life Sciences Innovation Center at the University of Kansas Medical Center — and the fact that the state’s quail population is at a 20 year high.
