NORM STEWARTBETA?
January 14, 1995
Phi Slamma Jamma, maybe. Agra Veta Hawk, certainly! But a bona fide, certified, pink and blue-wearing member of Beta Theta Pi social fraternity, one of the cultural bulwarks of the U.S. collegiate Greek system? Who’d a thunk it, even though initiation didn’t occur until well after his baseball-basketball days at Missouri-Columbia. Wait until I get the chance to barb some Sunflower Beta friends like Bob Timmons, Jerry Waugh, Max Falkenstien, Don-Peter-David Johnston, Rick Harman, Ward Haylett Jr. and Bill Richards — providing they’re still friends after I harpoon ‘em.

Recently, the chairman of the House Public Lands subcommittee suggested America’s national park system treasures can be saved only by shutting the gates on parks and historical sites that “do not belong in the national park system.”
