MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ High school students attending Kansas Boys' State in Manhattan have received some serious advice from Gov. Sam Brownback: Develop strong friendships. Find worthy mentors.
And the governor also jokingly pushed a piece of legislation for consideration during the week of mock government activities: Do something about pop superstar Justin Bieber.
KMAN-AM reports (http://bit.ly/KlQWwm ) the governor drew cheers and applause with the suggestion Wednesday night.
Brownback mentioned he has a 14-year-old daughter, then added, ``I would love you guys to outlaw Justin Bieber or something like that.''
Boys' State brings together young men entering their senior year of high school for a weeklong exercise in creating a mock society and government and learning how to run it efficiently. This week's session is the 75th anniversary of the event in Kansas.
