342. From the mouths of babes

Not real babies, of course.  They never say anything deserving of scorn.  But recently the Kansas appellate courts have ingenuously revealed things that more worldly-wise judges have learned to cloak in wordy euphemism.  The first case is officially "unpublished" and Kansas is one of those states that continue to hide their unpublished opinions, presumably because their authors have something to hide...
