MEDIA MOGULS BOW TO ECONOMIC PRESSURES
October 3, 1999
Fifty years ago the Chinese people “stood up,” in Mao Zedong’s ringing description of freshly found revolutionary pride. In Shanghai the other day, some of America’s top media bosses knelt down, eager to pursue one more pot of gold by kissing the ring of Mao’s revolutionary heirs. Corporate bosses from Time Warner, Viacom and other media firms disgraced themselves in Shanghai. They sullied the journalistic profession to which they are loosely attached. Their actions were redolent of corporate greed and self-abasement. Their deeds and words could only confuse the Chinese about the nature and integrity of the media companies they now head or covet.

STORIES HAVE FADED BUT MEMORIES SHARP
October 3, 1999
The University Daily Kansan had a party this weekend. It’s been a long time since I’ve had much association with the Kansan, but I got to remembering some of the things that happened while I was adviser and while I was one of the faculty people being blamed all over the campus for anything and everything that reached print. Once Bill Argersinger, graduate dean and professor of chemistry, called me to complain about some science story. “Bill,” I said, “I have nothing to do with the Kansan.” “I know!” he shouted. “But I’m so damned mad I’ve got to talk to somebody!”

CAMPAIGN FINANCE BATTLE WAGED ON TWO FRONTS

The battle over campaign finance laws becomes a two-front war this week, with the Senate taking up a House-passed bill to ban big-dollar contributions to the political parties and the Supreme Court hearing a challenge to existing caps on how much people can give to candidates. The legislative battle will range over familiar terrain and likely produce the same result — stalemate. The case the Supreme Court will hear Tuesday raises some fresh issues and forces the justices to revisit what many thought were settled matters.

GOVERNMENT IS TWO-FACED ON TOBACCO
October 3, 1999
“Say, sport, have you got a coffin nail on you?” asks a character in an O. Henry short story written in 1906. The New Dictionary of American Slang dates the phrase “coffin nail” from the late 19th century. Which fact indicates that the government, in its suit against the tobacco companies, is committing the sin — fraud — that it supposedly is suing about. Let us stipulate that the companies, without which the world would be better, have been deceitful about the addictiveness and harmfulness of cigarettes. But to prove fraud, government must show that its tobacco policy has been substantially affected by the companies’ duplicities, and that the companies prevented government and the public from knowing the truth. Good luck.

MAYER COLUMN
October 3, 1999
There is no measuring device fast enough to clock how soon speculation about a coaching change would surface after Kansas’s lopsided football losses to Colorado and San Diego State.

S TIP TIPPED THE SCALES TO KU

JUDICIAL MISSTEP
October 3, 1999
To the editor: We read, with alarm, the article in last Friday’s paper about the dismissal of the case against Ronnie McPherson. Since the charge against him was attempted murder, we are shocked. How is it that our system could even think about letting a man walk away from this charge with no trial? Now that the trial is reinstated, does this mean another six months of taxpayers’ money? In the meantime, what happens to the victim and the victim’s family, not to mention the community at large?

On Oct. 3, 1899, the Lawrence Journal, reporting on the previous evening’s city council meeting, noted: “The street paving ordinance was also passed, calling for the paving of Massachusetts street through the park district, with a six inch bed of macadam and a course of vitrified brick on the surface. This ordinance also caused some debate, but was adopted by a vote of nine to two. Mr. Newmark voted against the ordinance because he did not think that the macadam base was the proper thing, and Mr. Barker voted against it because he did not believe in pushing the work to the extent demanded by the ordinance.”
