Currently the anti-evolution crowd is out of power for the 2nd time.What liberal presence does exist in Wichita was concentrated around the College Hill area back when I visited in the 90s. Going by the last election, that dominance may be ending now but I think Wichita is still more conservative than Kansas overall, maybe almost to the extent that Lawrence is more liberal than the state. You know that 30% of America that still approves of the job that Bush is doing? We ask the saints for their intercession, just like you might ask a friend to pray for your sick grandmother, ie. I lived in Wichita and still have family there I can tell you the strait poop. 4 times higher than Missouri and Arkansas, and those states are much nicer places to live The religious dogma of the area try's to control what every one does, they keep out anything that they feel is a "vice" which to these Christians is everything but prayer books.You're sure to meet quite a few of them in Wichita. ) is in Kansas City....might be time to try another line of engineering? I was an aero major at U of IL for one full year but decided I'd rather be an actuary.re: Oh, and you're Catholic? I was told that's one step above paganism because Catholics worship saints. Peter, the guy Jesus left in charge (Matthew if anyone cares to look it up), and the first Pope. First off there is a lot of crime in the city, most people who post here do not live in Wichita proper, they live in one of the bedroom town like derby or Andover As for what is there to do in Wichita, I can tell you NOTHING AT ALL. They lost the battle to keep Sunday a dry "no booze sales" out, now that they have won the fight to keep out casinos and slots from the dog park, the dog park is going bye bye.

But I'm as apprehensive about Wichita as committing suicide under the gray clouds of Seattle...
I've been to Kansas - Royals game, Leavanworth, Lawrence, Fort Scott (too desolate there).
The only thing to do in Kansas is worship the jayhawks or wildcats (college sports) and drive to KCMO, St Louis, Lake of the Ozarks or Colorado for the weekend. But if you are form a big coastal city and like living there and you may have to possibly move to the midwest, then you better make sure you move to a major metro area like KC, St Louis, Chicago, Minneapolis etc or you will be sorry.
It used to be parents who worried about their children being picked up by unsavory types in bars and other seedy hang-outs.

I'm an aero engineer looking for a job, possibly outside the war machine.
So what besides building planes and church do people in Wichita enjoy? If you are looking to move someplace with both good job opps and good dating opps, I'd guess Wichita may not be your best choice. Politically and religiously, Wichita is very right wing.
It is pretty conservative here, all the representatives are Republican as far as I know. It attracted a lot of the religious right activists 15 years ago because it is home to one of the few clinics in the midwest that will perform controversial third-trimester abortions.
They're "educated" people - doctors, nurses, teachers... If you are a "born again nut bar" you will fit right in, but this town is not going to progress as the rest of the county is because of its lack of vision.
I was told more than once: "If you hate it so much, why don't you leave? I used to encourage people to move to Wichita, hoping someday that there would be enough people of varying viewpoints that the place would balance out, but I don't think I'll live to see it. If the town ever looses its air industry or the airforce base closes by derby, Wichita will only be used for filming when Hollywood needs a ghost town.
every one of the real-estate agents I worked with told me to never buy in Wichita,as it is dangerous and will not sell well, when I insisted to look at a couple of homes there, I was told if I did buy to put in a good security system. I don't see how anybody from a big city on the coast (and likes living there) can even consider living in Kansas.
