JAKE KLEINBERG SERVED KU LIBERALLYSELFLESSLY
March 28, 1997
I don’t remember when I first got to know Jake Kleinberg, but I know that an early memory is that of about ‘68 to ‘70, when Jake was on a University Senate committee interrogating some students who wanted to turn the place upside down and run things. It was a Jewish holiday, and Jake saluted a student who was Jewish, saluted him very nicely, and then proceeded to show the kid that his logic was in deep confusion. I’ve cherished Jake Kleinberg ever since. I used to see him striding up to the campus, and after a time of seeing him shake his head I quit asking him whether he wanted a ride. I wonder whether he still does that walking.

SEASON
March 28, 1997
“As I sat in the stands in the Birmingham Civic Center after our top-ranked University of Kansas Jayhawks lost to the University of Arizona in the NCAA college basketball regional semifinals recently, I was filled with a couple of emotions.
