December 30, 1999


On Dec. 30, 1899, the Lawrence Journal observed: "One task that we may as well set ourselves to work at without trying to delay it is to learn to quit writing it 1899; just what figures we are to make in our abbreviation of the new year has not yet been settled. It doesn't look well to write it '00, and yet if we don't it must be written in full, which is better, anyway."
